PCB holders

Post by skykid » October 12th, 2008, 1:37 pm

Ah, I need to get a PCB holder - the makeshift cardboard platform in my E2 is bloody awkward. I saw a holder once back on KC that holds them vertically, but I can't remember the link to the shop. Cheapest one preferred of course, but if you guys have any link that'd be handy!

Thanks guys,

SK

I have one of those, if the egret2's pcb cavity is anywhere near the size of my AWSD's then to mount it vertically you'll have to cut it down.

I mounted two pieces of wood in an inverted T shape onto the wood that came with the cab, to get over the brackets which hold it when you slide it in and out, I think pics would be easier to describe this hehe. Maybe I'll do one in a bit.

They are great though and hold the board really well.

One of these was mounted in my cab when it arrived, I assumed it was just a random make shift mount. Mine was obviously cut down too. *adds to spares pile*

Yes, cheers mark, that's the one! Pretty handy if you don't want to be screwing PCB feet in and out all the time.

The price is good, I don't suppose anyone knows of UK suppliers tho? (Just for shipping cost purposes.)

OR, if someone has a spare, sell it to me!

Before anything though, Kernow raises an interesting question. I'm not sure about the difference in cavities for an E2 and an AWSD - I haven't seen inside an AWSD. Anyone here able to confirm if this mounting rack is too big for an E2?

I paid about 5 quid for mine off ebay, I'm pretty sure swallow amusements sells them too.

let me get a pic of my makeshift setup

In the (pretty tiny) pcb cavity, you might be able to see why I raised it up so it gets past the sliders on the top and bottom to hold the wood panel in

Had to cut the top off and add a screw else it was just far too tall.

They are the exact same inside, though the E2 doesn't have that silver cover over the PSU, so there's a little more space.

Let me know if you find one in the UK as I might pick one up too

Cheers for the pics Kernow, very helpful mate. At a glance I would say Mark has it spot on. The E2 is pretty tight for space, but you've done well mounting the rack.

Mark, I'm going to go looking in a bit now I have a little time. I'll post anything I find here mate. ;)
