External floppy leads - any demand ?

Post by exxos » Tue Mar 20, 2018 6:01 pm

Wondering if there is any demand for the 14 pin floppy cables if I was to get some made ?

If anyone is interested I have designed and successfully 3D printed and assembled a 14-pin Atari ST floppy connector:

Actually, I've mixed thigs up, the Degson number is DG333J-3,5, while the STL1350 is the PTR (Mecano) number.

I have added some extra photos and links to the Thingiverse projects of this plug, and a key stem to the 3D Models section.

Degson seems to be local, for global source of the pins, please use:
https://www.conrad.com/p/ptr-pin-strip- ... pcs-732191 (there are 7 pins in the strip, so for 1 plug you will need 2 of these strips).
