Squeezing a TBoard into UL frame

OK well 9 gazillion PM's answered I'm gonna put this up & maybe it'll answer some questions..... Maybe not......

Ok now remeber this isnt as easy as one would think & coz the milling doesnt look extensive there is VERY little room for error.....

OK here is the two frames one fitted with the board the other bare

Pocket Milling

And again

Buttons in New positions to align with the UL's buttons

Kinda see the flipswitch position here, tight but works like a dream

A couple of pictures that dont really show the size differences but hell its enough to make an *** outta the project

Newly positioned buttons in the frame

Backside of the frame with the board fitted


Well there is the picture show, doesnt show all the finite work thats involved but will give you a good idea of where & how it all goes together......

I will say again & again dont try this with a dremmel coz all youll do is screw up a good frame.. The board itself I shrunk by 2.5mm which involved remote running some of the circuits & I shortened the board by 7mm... I am in the process of getting an E2 to fit but am not certain it'll work, lets see huh!

Well I hope this answers some questions & dont come crying to me if you skrew up $300+ worth of stuff trying this

BlackBean......

Cunning use of superglue, its still ez to remove & I have found the grips secure it quite well

Great work. I'm working on the opposite: putting a UL board into an intimidator frame. Mine won't be nearly as tough though.

BlackBean, as always your work is scandalous. And once you put pics of yours out there, my PM load dropped precipitiously!

so basically aside from milling out the frame you have to reorganize the board too?

Hah !!!! Well the E2 can fit (barely)..... Just got back from 4 hours of milling & measuring & I squeezed it in. The buttons I will have to fabricate new ones but it all looks good.. Pictures will be posted later & if you want it done it's gonna be expensive as hell LOL
