Commodore Flyer modem enclosure

Posted By on December 26, 2013

Stumbled across this one day on comp.sys.cbm. Yes, usenet isn’t dead.

It is a very nicely machined enclosure for the Commodore Flyer modem, which until now, had been living inside the anti-stat bag it was shipped in. Apparently a one-off project by a group/person called MarchLabs. I love projects like this, and even more so when it’s something of high usefulness. I wish I could fabricate enclosures, but I lack pretty much everything necessary: the CNC for starters, and the skill to draw in a CAD program. You can see how it’s been milled.

The Flyer sits nicely inside, and a rubber boot for the reset switch:

Everything lines up:

Four rubber feet to hide the screw-holes; I doubt I’ll need access to the internals. And a transfer sticker of the Commodore chicken-lips.

Unfortunately, sold out…

    Hi,

    Thanks for reviewing our case. We hope to make another run of enclosures soon. I will post on Lemon64 when they are ready.
