@FOL

Currently using a Squirrell SCSI with this A1200 but I have a 4 way IDE interface & a slimline CD which I am pondering on installing,
I want to see how stable it all is for a while regarding the Indivision as I think I need to secure it to LISA a lot better than just clipping it on.

Any Ideas guys.........Apart from Hot Glue???

Okay, TC!

Very nice modding there old chap.

Hmmm, sticky goop but not too sticky...
...fishtank sealant!

Ok, ok. Maybe it's a bit of a fetish of mine - I don't even own any fish. (or a fishtank)

I've never bothered to check - does Lisa get hot..?
(I bet she does now - fnar, fnar!)

My wife is into making cards (among other things) & maybe some glue-dots would be about perfect...
...look like little blobs of phlem. Sticky, but not unbreakable.

Many Thanks Charlie.

I Will be interested to see which path you go down when you fit your Indivision.

I think a 10mm soft drop test for the A1200 would be a good benchmark to prove the fixing method is secure.

Those glue dot's sound very interesting???? and a possible solution.

I don't believe LISA does get that hot, I've never heatsinked her (Fnar Fnar )

According to viddi the LISA socket may have been reworked during Production as his socket is the same.

Let us know how you get on Charlie

Cheers mate

My Indivision has the same 'chop' out of the edge of the socket as your's & viddi's. I guess it's 'normal'.

I can imagine Jens thinking:
'There it's done, & it's lovely.'
'What do you mean it won't fit that particular mobo revision..?'
'*£$&*(!!!'
'Where's my craft-knife gone? I'm going to have to mod every one before it goes out the door...'

Did you replace the case and keyboard or use a whitening technique?

lmfao, nothing wrong with a bit of hot glue. Its never given me any probpems before, plus, if you need it pulling off in the future, it just breaks off in 1 go. You wouldnt even know it had been there, .

I suppose its up to the person doing it. As I have had no problems with hot glue in the past, doesnt me other havent had problems.

Charlies idea sounds interesting though, .

What about bathroom sealent, I would push that to "no more nails" but you might want to get the thing off in the future, . Ive never tried either off these, maybe someone else has?

Just had another thought, how about a piece of rubber. Maybe construct it as a type of leg, which could be attached to the back of keyboard and when keyboard is in place it would then push against the Indivision board to stop it comming off.

Would have to be a tough piece of rubber though. Or maybe something else with no conductive properties ofcourse.

Cheers for the ideas FOL, The Rubber idea is interesting but Would need to apply pressure to the indivision at a purpendicular angle else you run the risk of popping it off, also heavy handed keyboard vibrations may upset it.

I think I need to find some of Charlie's Glue spots.

Thanks

Dude, that is so very nice!

Hit up Ultrareliable (can't remember what he is called here, but that's him on Amibay) for a 64mb stick for your accelerator! I got two off him, they are short, fit fine, work great

Again, very nice...very nice indeed!
