A500 Mini Keyboardification Chapter two, part 1…The Evisceration and Dimensionality

I received yesterday my A500 Mini! – Haven’t even powered it up yet 😛

My assumption about the 43ish percent scale was about right – and the work i’ve done so far on the PCB pretty much stays the same – which is a relief.

However, till now i’ve been using a full sized Amiga 500 to infer dimensions. I can’t easily do that going forward as the scaling factor for the Amiga is ‘a bit weird’ – I think I can see why it’s been done, but, it’s far far easier to re-start the CAD from new…or at least shift the fusion timeline back to the beginning and see what i can recover 🙂

Much more to do, will update later as there’s also a few ‘gotcha’s i’ve found, and a few ‘woo’ moments also!

Dimensioned to within about 0.3mm

Spmeone should hide my screwdrivers
