PLEASE KEEP ON-TOPIC on this subject, until at least 1st april, thx

question from mark so clarifying here, he asked "what mounting holes
can be used from the PCB" and there aren't any, mark.

the stack that was done 2 years ago the micro-desktop PCB was "loose"
inside the case, using close-fitting to ensure it didn't move about
too much.

if you review the photos on crowdsupply (i have some more somewhere...
chris can you remember where they are, after you did those beautiful
drawings?) you can see that there are 4 screws which keep the entire
stack together, these do *not* go through the PCB.

the baseline stack height is 3mm.

the new USB connector is 6mm high

the VGA connector and PJ-045 (DC jack) i believe are both 9mm

the micro-sd card slot (on the bottom, other end) is 2mm

the EOMA68 (PCMCIA) is 6mm.

so it all works out pretty well: you end up in some cases with two
halves per horizontal stack but that's fine because there are 2 screws
each side to hold them together.

what i can do, mark, is if we get the DXF files sorted i can turn them
into 3D-printed "things" and then do a video (which you can publish on
your website, yay!).

we can do a few rounds at it.
