**IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - Sales back on!**
Everyone who's contacted me over the last couple of weeks regarding parts, I've had a combination of events that have caused me problems:
1. My makerspace is having a massive load of work done that's disrupting things that I can do. I've PM's each of you about it but it has left me with a backlog. good news is that I should be back up and running on my next visit (9th May) and will start working through the backlog (about 10 ports for various people)
2. My phone (Nexus 5X) broke it's charge port and I didn't notice til I was due to charge, and I do like 95% of my internetting on it as I rarely get time to sit at a computer which is not my work PC... my temporary replacement just fails at trying to do anything that's not ultra light weight. even includes making phone calls at times! avoid alcatel pixi 4(4)'s at all costs
3. normally (2) wouldn't have caused me problems, but I've just changed jobs so all my spare time has been getting up to speed and finding out what is and isn't acceptable to do at work. - I likely won't be on the forums anywhere near as much as used to be so that's compounded my lack of phone...
**Update 17th May**
At the moment I'm going to have to suspend new requests, as with the recent influx of requests (thanks to the feature on my soldering guide on the homepage ), I'm totally snowed under!
I only have time for one visit of a couple of hours per week to my makerspace to do these and with all the requests, I'm just spending all my time desoldering and 3D printing pieces. I've been unable to do any work on any of my own projects (GBCartSlurp/GBZ/Tiny Pi/arcade cab/mini megadrive...) and I'm getting more requests than I can reasonably fulfill ATM.
So if you've already PM'd me and I've responded, then you're in the queue and I'll get to your parts as soon as I can.
anyone who hasn't already got in contact, then please wait until I can clear down my queue and get a little bit of my own stuff done.
To be clear, I haven't SOLD OUT, I'm just not taking new orders for a while
I apologize to anyone who's been waiting for a while, I've had so many PM's lately that some got a little buried, but I WILL get your parts sent out as I go through my PM's with a fine toothed comb.
Please feel free to send me a reminder PM if you think I've still forgotten you.
I have a bunch of DS-Lite motherboards, waaay more than I need, so if anyone is after an elusive DS/GBA cartridge port without having to sell a kidney for one, I can de-solder one for you.
I'm in the UK so although I can ship internationally, it will probably only be cost effective for UK'ers or maybe also EU'ers (seems to be around an extra £2 for most eu countries and 3-4 ish for USA)
Anyway, I can do a slot desoldered for £5 including UK postage (intl. will be extra) or if you can do the desoldering yourself, or want to have a go, the whole DS board is £3.50 including UK postage but note, all these boards are in some way dysfunctional. so if you're after one for a gameboy macro mod (ds without the top screen so it only plays GBA games) then it's pot luck if the board works enough to do that. some don't charge, some don't read carts, some don't drive the top screen etc. They were a job lot so I haven't personally tested them to find out what's not working. I can put aside any I find as I come across them if you want a specific function though...)
NEW: I also can supply just the button bits of PCB for minty pi 2.0 (when the guide comes) as I'm sure the project will use them. If you just want the button pads cut off, it will be £3 delivered (UK) or £2 if you want to cut them (whole board without the cartridge port)
Multiple deals and additional 3D printed parts available too so PM me your requirements.
also note, I can only do the desoldering when I go to my local hackspace since they have the tools that I don't at home which is around once a week, so it might be a week or so before I can get one done if I haven't done a bunch already.
