PLCC FUNKY TO PLCC NORMAL ADAPTERS

As many know I developed the funky blitter adapter kit...

Though people are having difficulties assembling this, and I do not really blame them either as it is a bit of a nightmare. I am however considering getting a batch of these made up to make life easier installing these..

So I wonder how much interest there is in having these assembled... Do not really know how much these would cost, but I would expect the price to be below £15.. I have asked for a quotation so I guess we shall see..

I have been talking to mine PCB guy, and working with him to assemble 100 of these sockets.. I will try and keep the final price as low as possible for people. I would expect somewhere around £15 per socket assembled.

Likely will be no more news now about this until the New Year...

It will take me a while to test them all as I got 100 made.. But I think they will start appearing in my store over the next few days..

Damn, if only I'd seen this before I ordered my TOS switcher this morning, I probably need at least 2!!

Spent too much in December/Jan on Atari stuff, I'd probably better wait until payday :roll:

Do you use any isolation material between the adapter and Atari board?

Something like some card has to be used to stop the PLCC socket from shorting on the motherboard.

I mention it on my site http://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/blitter/index.htm and on the store link.

aha thanks for pointed that. And BTW I made 2 of yours adapters and it is not hard but time demanding and you have to be really careful so it is nice you have some ready.
