Wanted - Anyone got a STE case knocking about?

Post by project23 » Fri May 31, 2019 4:00 pm

Bought an STE last year, fully working, but the lower case disintegrated when I took the bloody bubble wrap off!

Be a shame if it didn't find a housing - wondered if anyone had a spare full STE case, or even just the lower part if not the full case?

I'm UK based, and obviously i'd be buying it, lol.

I have a full STE case lying about, it is not in terrific shape. The lower part of the case is in reasonable condition, bit yellowed but intact. The top part however has a nasty cut where the floppydrive used to be, it's also a 520STFM top case.....

If you're interested I could post some pictures.

If you aren't worried about the extended joypad ports, then a normal ST case will work fine, which is how my first STE started off.

The standard ST case (Well mine did at least) had molding marks on the inside, so it would have been possible to easily dremel it out to the correct dimensions using the lines as a guide.
Collector of old Atari things:
800XL + Ape Warp mod, 2x 1010 cassette, 1050 + Happy mod, 65XE (128k) & XC12, SIO2SD, 2600jr, 7800 and Lynx II
Atari 520ST (1Meg) + Gotek, 1040STFM + Vortex ATOnce + Gotek, 1040STF long button floppy, 4160 STE with Gotek and ROM switcher, 4160STE with 32Mhz booster, ROM switcher and CosmosEx, not to mention various bare ST boards for testing including a PAK 68/2 :)
Plus the rest..
Amiga stuff, Mac stuff, Sinclair stuff etc...
