Hi JuvUK.

I think that not all the cages are the same right? With how many expansions do you want? I have an old pc case in the basement, I can check it tomorrow, if that's ok.

ok, I understand what you are looking for, but is it removable? I have a dremel with diamonds;) But it takes forever for that size cutting

they are usually riveted in place, i thought maybe just drill the rivets out?

cheers, JuvUK

I too have a large collection of old, dead PC cases. If you just want the card plane, I could probably remove one from an old case. It'll be a standard 7-slot ATX one.

Will let you know how I get on. Yours for the cost of postage, if I can successfully separate it from the rest of the case! :-)

perfect Andy thanks, i do just need the card plane, my plan is to graft it into my A4K case exactly where i need it, where i get my A4000 mobo i will be able to put it in the case with my Zorro board and then i can work out where i'll need to put the PCI cage:thumbsup:

cheers, JuvUK

8-slot, with all screws (not everyone riveted/welded the cages in place), from a 486 iirc.

Glad you found something suitable. It was looking like I'd have to fire up the dremel to extract one from the cases I have here! :-)

Nice discover for JuvUK. :thumbsup:

Sorry, but I just woke up, and I saw that you found one. And the problem is that I don't have those dremels you say. :p

You haven't seen it yet... it could do with a wash. ;)

It's on its way by 1st class Snail (bubble-wrapped, of course).

We really must find a way to send solid, physical objects over the Internet. It'd save a fortune on postage and packaging!
