View Full Version : For Sale Amiga 4000D DVI & Blank Rear Expansion Port Covers

10th September 2013, 17:54
Hi Everyone,

Some time ago I had my A4000D Indivision connector on a full height back plate but when I installed my Mediator I wanted to move it to the rear expansion port of my Amiga which was missing, so I could have access to all PCI slots on the Mediator.

I started to cut up the full size back plate with a dremmel but its looked like a dogs dinner so I contacted a local metal laser cutting company who made some for me.... but the minimum order was 100 :Doh:

So I have some spares :D

0 (was 70) x Expansion covers with DVI hole and 3(was 20) x Expansion covers which are blank. (I had some blanks made as I see lots of A4000D's on this forum without the plate.)

NO MORE DVI PLATES LEFT :(

51873

I'm asking 2.50 per plate + PayPal fees + Postage (they'll be sent as a letter where possible - each plate is 10g). Please PM me state which plate(s) you want.

The plates are unpainted and laser cut from .9mm steel. The screw holes for attaching it to you 4000D case are untapped but you can tap them or use a nut & bolt etc.. I tapped mine for a M3 thread which works pretty well.

If you want me to tap the holes, please let me know in your PM.

Once its in place it looks great.

51877

I appreciate a lot of you guys would have simply made these with a few swipes of a cutting disc or a quick blast from your heat vision but I'm a bit ham fisted when it comes to this sort of stuff and you must admit, if it weren't for the fact that they're unpainted, they look like the original plate. (The company took my original 4000D expansion cover plate and duplicated it).

51875

51874

51876

There is clearance if you use the internal 3.5" HD chassis mounted on the PSU / daughter board rail as long as the drive sits no lower than the lowest point on the HD chassis.

Thanks for looking.

UPDATE 02/06/14

I recently bought a 1200 and then a indi from Amigakit.

The plate is the perfect height and I modified it to fit the 1200:

70229

Basically, measure the expansion slot in the 1200, cut off the ends with a saw / tin snips so the plate fits and the DVI is in the middle of the now shorter plate. You will need to keep the two ends you just removed so don't throw them away or damage them.

Drill two new holes either side of the dvi slot with a drill larger then the M3 thread which is cut into the holes in the two bits you just removed. Drill them as close as you can to the edge, in the middle of the plate:

70228

You should be left with something like this:

70227

(This is one of my first efforts but the holes I drilled are too close to the DVI hole and the connector didn't fit - I should have followed my own advice below and produced a mock up with cardboard really :Doh:)

Fit the plate, and use the two threaded tabs to secure it:

70226

The Indivision I have has a short fly lead to the connector. It is a tight fit to connect it to the board, but it will work.

It may be advisable to mock this up in cardboard to ensure you get the measurements right.

So, if you want a plate for your Indivision MK2 (I'm assuming this is the CR version as the DVI is not on a daughter board that can be bolted the the case), drop me a PM. I won't do the modifications for you, but if I can do it, anyone can :thumbsup:

Regards

One thing, the side screw holes are too small for reusing the original Commodore screws - so I had to hunt for smaller ones, but eventually found some that would fit.

I tapped mine out with an M3 thread, and had loads of screws hanging about from PC builds etc...

Or you could use a good quality screw to cut some thread in the plate, please make sure you remove any burrs which could drop on the motherboard though.

I still have the tap, so if anyone wants them tapping, just let me know in your PM.

Of course I can't do this for your plate alenppc but by the sound of it you got it sorted. Thanks again for your purchase. :thumbsup:

I sold my1200's recently but if someone can give me the dimensions I can measure the plates.

Alternatively I can get Layzers to possible 3d print some but not sure how strong they would be.

If they are laser cut from steel, I'll need to order 100 :(

Having never seen an A4000 in the flesh! I am very interested to know if these plates are the same size as the opening for 50pin scsi ports? (the big old style low density stuff)

scsi enclosures tend to have the cutouts for them.

If they are then I would like a couple uncut plates. I need to mount some usb ports into an scsi case for a custom build

merlin1968

Hi Mate,

The blanks are exactly the same size but without the DVI hole.

You will need to dremmel out / cut a hole for the SCSI depending on the connector but it will fit if your good with that sort of thing.

PM me if you want some.

Cheers

Indeed it is pop rivet! I got so sick of playing juggler holding the screwdriver against the bolthead whilst my sausage fingers try to align the nut and all while holding the hardware upright....grrrrr

I thought about sending them to Amigakit originally when they had the indi 4k in but never got round to it.

I could order more but its taken over a year to shift them and at the end of the day I only wanted one for my 4k, but I had to buy 100 as this was the minimum order.

I've spoken to my mate who prints the sx endcaps and he's going to have a go at 3d printing one. It this turns out to be strong enough he'll hopefully take some orders. He could probably do other ports too; VGA, SCSI, rca etc.. I can't see them being as tough as these metal ones though. Or maybe someone wants 50 plus and I'm happy to order some more.

As for 3D printed ones... We are making some prototypes here with 3D printing, I'm not involves in the process but I've seen the result.

3D printed wouldn't be as nice: they either tend to be expensive if heavy-duty expensive equipment is used OR stringy (that is: separate filaments dangle from them) if cheap equipment is used. They are tough enough if done right, though. Not as tough as metallic ones or even as tough and properly molded plastic ones, but tough enough.
