MacBook Air (Gen 1) Hinge Fix by phraust Feb 12, 2013


The hinges on my old MacBook Ait froze up and busted, and this point it's not worth it to me to buy the new parts (something like $200).

So I built these to hold the screen up when open, and not take up too much space. I just epoxied em to the bottom of the Air, and they hold the screen at a pretty good angle.

No real instructions. I printed it in PLA, epoxied em on the bottom, and they work pretty well.
