Re: Nice clean straight plastic cutting

This was my solution: I cut cheap electrical tape (the cheap stuff is quite stretchy) into 1.5mm strips and ran it round the edge of the window. Then used a marker to follow the edge of the tape. When filing and sanding the edge, I just stop when the coloured ink disappears. http://i.imgur.com/B27IN...

Re: D56: GameBoy Pi Zero

I wasn't aware you could get any colour other than clear, until now. I might invest in some white sticks.

Re: D56: GameBoy Pi Zero

Looks great so far! Is that just black hot glue or did you use something else?

Great find! Especially for those who use replacement shells isntead of a faulty DMG-01.

Re: Share your workspace!

Re: [Wanted] Button wells

It was a very cheap unofficial SNES controller from a UK based eBay seller. Even the internals were as thin and cheap as could be.

Re: [Wanted] Button wells

This isn't the most cost-efficient idea, but I'll throw it out there anyway: Get an el cheapo SNES controller or something and take the button wells from there. :) This is what I did and I've decided to chuck the cheapo controller and go for something else. The plastic was so unbelievably soft and ...
