I am not that familiar with the A4000, can you post a pic of what it looks like?

You could do this...

PC boardmount clip one end threaded other, threaded spacer and screw to fix board, 2 washers to make it 17mm :)

...unless you only wanted genuine.

PM your address and I'll post this one, FOC, Just put 50p in your favorite charity box when you are out.

Re: Wanted Plastic stand leg that goes under A4000 CPU Card

The whole thing tbh. These legs are more rare than de-hydrated DoDo sperm! :mrgreen:

I thought I had a couple spare & have been franticly searching for them for 2 days now. I have to be real careful as to what I let go atm, as I have 2 A4K CPU cards going out & all have to be catered for.

I would have kept quiet about it normally, but now I'm shitting myself 'cos I can't find 'em! :?

But seriously, I love the Hack to make do. Inspiring! :D

I knew they would be rare :roll:

I think I'm going to end up with some nylon threaded tubes and nylon screws (generic PCB spacers)

To be fair Quagmire, a couple of Brass Hex Bar spacers Machined to length & tapped M3 each end, would be much more solid job!

Do you want this topic closing or are you still hoping to find some original parts?
