I've finally got my 4000 up and running now that I've replaced some ICs near the RTC area that died.

Now I'm in the process of extracting the files from the pimiga project to see if I can get it running on the 4000 with my zz9000...not sure how much work that will be upgrading that install from 3.1 to 3.1.4 though!

What's that project??

It's this one here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/AmigaCDnestProject.CD1200/

Injection moulding even to test is expensive.

Obviously it costs money if you don't have one already but 3d printing might be okay for some level of prototyping - if you don't have a 3d printer perhaps there are some maker spaces in your area might be able to help out.

When I've been interested in something better than what I can do at home, I've engaged 3rd parties to print stuff with reasonable results, that particular mob I linked to is out of country so may take time to get something in your hands with the whole Zombie apocalypse going on at the moment, so you may need to weigh up cost vs turn around time.  These days there are good materials that can be sanded/painted and have reasonable strength and thermal properties which help before you go down the path of injection moulding.
