If OP could offer also the IBM case, the cost wouldn't increase so much. About 30 USD more I think

Would be interesting to see this in a unicomp mini m case, if the mini m ever ships

Hi, @fricked : any recent news on this project?
(Or newer pictures/designs/schematics of parts to share?)

Unfortunately I haven't been working on it lately :(
There was much less interest than I expected so this project doesn't seem very viable.
I might do it anyway counting on future uses for the flippers but for now I'm working on other things.
Thanks everyone for the enthusiasm and all the suggestions, if I have any updates I will post them here

I can think of at least 4 boards I would want to convert with this if it ever comes to fruition.

Reading this, I have to wonder if you're familiar with idollar's fabulous FSSK project here from a few years ago. It's exactly what OP is describing.

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=10744

I can't recall how I acquired the board files. idollar may have given them to me. They may have been somewhere on that thread. Anyway, these should be the latest and greatest Gerbers for FSSK and FEXT.

If you use these, please attribute idollar, and maybe send him a completed unit for free. I bet he'd really appreciate it.

I built my own FSSK. Getting it working was really tough. I hope you know what you're in for. I thought I had a build log here on DT somewhere, poke around for it.
