Not sure, going to put it on some type of base. Just something so its easier to move around. The Eiffel makes it mush easier. You just plug in a mouse, keyboard, mouse while it maintains a small foot print.
Yes - base at least. As you say helps moving it around and stops catching any of the patches underneath on the desk / bench.

I was behind when I started so a lot of the fixes were found by you, ForgotMyName, and Exxos so I was able to plan the fixes and put most of them on the top of the board where their better protected. I still have a number on the bottom though where they can get snagged. Hence the OWC box mount currently used.

I've moved up in the world!! Went from an OWC box to a CUSTOM Atari box cut down. I call it an RABox.. One step closer to a rack mount. :yay2: :yay2: :yay2:

Brilliant. :)

I think I would go for the alternative PayPal boxes just so every time Exxos sees those boxes in a picture he starts muttering unmentionable words :D
