    Default Amiga 2000 custom case

    Recently I have soldered an Amiga 2000 reproduction board by Floppie209. Unfortunately, I have had difficulty sourcing a case for it. Eventually, I found something on eBay, although in poor condition (broken mounting poles in front bezel and drilled holes with toggle switches installed).


    I decided to create my own case using original measurements. To test the fit, I used a second, unpopulated board. I made a mounting bracket for Zorro cards, which I will have to correct in some ways (expand the groove which boards lean against and think of an appropriate insulation material), however I don't think this is necessary for the A2000, except for transportation.


    I intended to use a scandoubler, the PCB of which you can see, which I also created a rear bracket for. I heard that PAL is not ideal, NTSC runs comparably better - does anyone have an opinion on this topic?


    I have, to the best of my ability, tried to make the case as similar to the original as possible. Unfortunately, I do not know how long it will take me to finish this project (I would like to first populate the case how I want).

    I am VERY impressed with this!

    Any idea the timescale and price/availability when finished?

    EDIT: Jumping the gun but an A4000D one is needed! those machines suffer badly more so with the terrible front
    panel design.

    I can not produce many of them. This is my hobby work after "day job". Price would be in region of 220 plus postage 30 within the UK. If someone is seriously interested I will open thread in "Hardware for sale/Amiga".

    I am working on something for A4000D, but it will take couple months to finish it (limited time), bit more complicated for me due to vertical daughterboard.

    impressive indeed.
    seems a bit higher than original.
