Clamshell Battery Contact Repair



#13

I have worked this part out in my sheetmetal shop:


I propose making it from .024 Stainless Steel. I think I can offer it @ about $20 as this would cover the setup and hand bending costs (the radius has to be done by hand)

This cost could come down if I knew my batch would sell out or I should setup and make more. I have 3 interested folks, Kerem, Nigel and David. Are there anymore?

I might be interested in maybe five of them. One for me and four to resell on ebay.

#15

Picture isn't showing up for me....


#16

Neither for me. I get an error from Google Mail when I try to open it directly.

#17

Here is the picture I have from Adam [Link]

#18

I'd be interested in one too I think.

I love my 28S but the battery door surround broke a very long time ago.

I'm interested as well, particularly if the price came down I'd be interested in 2.

#20

I'd be interested in two.


#21

Thanks Kerem.

Okay, I'll get these going. I'll update on the price. I hope to do for less than $20.


#22

How does it work? Does the whole thing fit into the battery compartment or does it go around the outside of the calculator?

#23

Thanks for the picture update. Any possibility it could have a black finish?

Cheers,
Bob

I'll check out with my plating guy if he can apply a black oxide finish to these. That would look pretty nice.
