A Color Computer and attached Multi-Pak Interface can be a precarious combination. There is nothing latching the two together so one wrong bump can cause the two to separate. This has a high possibility of frying the CoCo or the Multi-Pak Interface. During the CoCo’s run in the 80s, there were many advertisements selling a “locking” plate for your computer combination. I just finished up a base plate for my CoCo 3 (26-3334) & MPI (26-3124).
And here is a link to the CAD files. For material as thick as ¼ inch I really do suggest the “vented” template.
The wood base plate I cut works with all of the CoCo 2s and 3s I have. I’m considering drawing some other combinations:
- CoCo 1 with Original MPI (done, added 10/23/2014)
- CoCo 1 with New MPI (done, added 10/25/2014)
- CoCo 2/3 with Original MPI
Let me know. If the response is high enough I’ll do it.
I won’t be offering routing services.
