If there will be PCBs available as well, I would definitely take 2, possibly 4. I have an upcoming project that these would be most helpful.

Thanks!

Hi guys.

Sorry for not keeeping you updated lately, but have been busy with yet another console restoration.

But i do have some good news, i have found a switchcap that will work for the lower four switches.
They look slighly different and the surface is slighltly concave, but they will work for me.
This is the only switchcap i have found that have the same measurments as the original and will fit on a ITT style switch.
It also should be possible to engrave this style, but i will look into this next week.
Will post pics below.

I have also sorted out the pressnuts and screws, and have decided that all will be M2.5 to keep the original look.

As soon as the prototype is done i will post pictures here and start a new thread for orders.
I do hope everyone that previously expressed interest is still in for some :)

I will take 2 for sure... And depending on when you'll be ready, more. (I would love to have 10 of them but maybe my wallet won't allow me to buy them so 2 for sure).

Hello,

Great job !

I could be in for 4 and 4 without front panel (1063), all depending on the money thing.

Hello,

And one more thing, if somebody has a unbuild kit from Tommy Jones, and can make good scan's (600dpi >) of both sides of the PCB's I am happy to make new pcb files for them.
