Looking for a black brick psu, the 'ribbed' one. If it's one that can be disassembled, so much the better! I actually need just the casing.
This is the kind i'm talking about: http://i51.tinypic.com/2v3j2ph.jpg

Preferably from within Europe please.
Thanks!

If you have a method of removing the epoxy without destroying the case, please share it with us: I have a Brand-New white C64C PSU which was dead when found.

Howewer, he was never ever used and it's waiting for a method to remove the epoxy without altering its perfect plastics. :)


Cheers,
Oge

No, i actually don't have a certain method, but as far as i'm aware they come in various 'flavours'. That's why i mentioned i prefer one that can be disassembled. But willing to experiment! :thumbsup:

I'm afraid that they were all filled with epoxy resin (check this picture (http://home.icequake.net/%7Enemesis/misc/c64-psu2.jpg)).

The models which can be modified or repaired are the following ones:
Model 902503-02 (Picture (http://k4-pacific.com/10-13-2010/BAp5020067.jpg))
Classic Breadin Power Supply (Picture (http://www.auctionsplash.com/UserImages/greg_80/greg_80_634468748529172776-0.jpg)).

Ok, i decided to change what i'm looking for.. I edited the title, but i would appreciate it if a mod can move it to the Wanted Amiga hardware section!
What i'm actually looking for now is a regular Amiga beige (or black) psu brick.
Preferably empty or busted.
Thanks! :thumbsup:

A busted C128 PSU also has quite a nice case for modifications :thumbsup:

cant you just get the epoxy warm ??
i know some epoxys are temp resistant though and i guess given the use of the epoxy it would probably be one of the ones that is heat resistant.
but most epoxys to my knowlage become plyable again when heated.

I have tried with good result gel to remove paint, but you must wait some hours.
