Heh, sometimes I think I need to just keep 3 systems and epoxy the cases shut.
If I could get down to 9, Angels would weep with joy.
Alas, I have 4 non-retro at my desk right now and two other desks, so fat chance. 🙁

Got my drive cage rev'd for the 3D printed retro case.. perfect fit for the 5.25 and 3.5 drives. Also test fit a keylock, which also fits perfect. Still waiting on other parts, and then I just have to reprint the revised version of the front panel.
Is there a thread for this, and what nozzle size are you using? I have issues with raised text at 0.4mm (like with my CPU trays).
Awesome job BTW! Something kind of like that has been in my noggin for a while, thinking about how to do joins for long pieces (I just did battery holders with very tight dovetail joints that seem pretty strong).
While I'm at it, more will come on this but:
Traded 2 Athlon II and 1 C2d for this. AFAICT it was literally never used, the metal plate where the CD drive would go hasn't been removed, and it's very clean.
I *really* need to get off my duff and convert some ATX PSUs to AT, or build fresh AT supplies cheaper than you can buy them (like with one or more small hobbyist PSUs). Part of the goal is to make a small server-rack style retro tower with several systems and a KVM, to save space. Maybe do up the front of the rack like a 60s style Blinkenlights computer.
Just an idle idea for now.
