Amiga 600 Case Saver Kits

After coming out with the Case Saver kits for the C64 bread bin and 64C we started getting requests for a similar kit for the Amiga 600. The A600 uses similar 'hooks' as the VIC20 and early C64 bread bins but scaled down considerably. In addition to four back clips there are two clips on the side.

The back clips are made to slip in between the two original 'hooks' and can be used to repair broken clips or to bolster intact clips to keep them from breaking off in the future. The arch of the clip is very close to the original while keeping it as thick as possible for added strength. The 'wings' on the rear of the repair clip register against the original hooks to help align then and keep them in the proper place while the epoxy cures.

The side clips were tricky to make as there is not a lot of room to work with and we wanted them to also hold themselves into place while the epoxy cures. These repair clips are made to set over a broken clip that is filed flush, so there is a left and right hand side slip. The tip of the hook tapers down to the dimensions of the original clip while being stronger.

Each kit contains four of the rear repair kits and once each of the left and right side repair clips.

As these parts are very small and light we set up a special fixed rate shipping method for customers in the United States. This works similar to the International Fixed Rate we set up several months ago for the C64 repair kits.

NOTE:
Hi. I wanted to let you know about a fitment issue I found last evening, 3/26/20, with some floppy drives. The 'wings' I added to make gluing in the rear clips easier stick out too far and contact part of the floppy drive mounting bracket. I just modeled a new part without the 'wings' and in new kits two of the 'wingless' type and four of the original 'winged' type will be provided so that the ones with no 'wings' can be used on the right hand side by the floppy drive if needed. I'm sorry if that has cause a fitment issue for your floppy drive. If you have had any issue let me know.
