if you are making one of these and want the 12v +/- (to run cartridges) on the Omega MSX i have shim boards..

just the board is $2.00 each

Board and headers $2.50 (set)

board with Headers soldered in $3.00 each

with DC-DC 12v +/- unit attached $12.00 each(set)

DC-DC 12v +/- units $10.00 each

postage in nz about $2.00 will send over seas but will need to get a price ..

PM me if you want them i will also be doing them with the OMEGA boards as a kit (OMEGA main and keyboard + dc-dc board)

thanks and hope this helps someone..

well still waiting for gear.. this is a joke... may have to re-order... but some good news.. the case is at it's first print stage... and i jumped in and bought a 3D printer.. it's a ANET A8 not the flashest but for the price has a 300x300x350 print bead and its the upgraded version.. it should be hare in 2 weeks DHL..

will keep you updated.. i only want it to do the plugs for the resin casting of the cases.. plus i'll be doing cart casses and of cause my 10" LCD top cover unit.

well thats it for now... take care everyone.
