WANTED Bottom half of ZX81 case

Post by PaulUK »

I'm looking for the bottom half of a ZX81 case. I have a top half and a badly or partially soldered ZX81 PCB that I would like to restore. But first I need a complete case. If anyone can help donate or sell me the lower half of a case at a reasonable price I'd be grateful. Thank you.

Print yourself or order one.

Thank you for that, I will see if I can get one printed at work. I hadn't considered it before.

I got this zeddy today. The top half is ruined with glue so isn’t really fit for anything:

The bottom half however is not too bad:

With a bit of glue near the edge connector:

It may clear up a bit with IPA and elbow grease. It only has two feet.

Yours for the price of postage.

Hi, where about in the world are you? I'm in Germany. Please PM me with the postage and I'll add some to whatever the postage is. Thank you, I really appreciate it.

No worries.

I’m in the UK.

Can you PM me your address? I will need an address to put in to Royal Mail to get a price.

That looks like a great keyboard. Looks like someone put in real switches, and made it fit ZX81’s small footprint.
