metal C128D Floppy Lock Plus
Replacement for broken floppy lock on a Commodore C128D (metal version) retro-computer.
Plus stands for the added material surrounding the "half-moon" plug, compaired to the original floppy lock.
The floppy-drive drive should be an 1571 model to fit.
The axis for the floppy mechanics is 15mm long (longer than on 1541-II models for C64)
Best printed in ABS to be strong enough.
The inner of the "half-moon" has to be reworked to fit smooth, f.e. by rotary tool.
Don't try to push or force the plug on the floppy mechanics - they may get damaged!!!
Two versions of the lock exist:
1 part lock:
Has to be printed with support (more than one try may be needed to get good results)
2 parts lock:
Can be printed without any support and must be glued together.
Aceton is a perfect glue for ABS plastics.
manual re-working needed!
The inner axis (half-moon-plug) must be re-worked,
cause some material from print can make it to small!
Don't try to press the lock on the floppy-drive without doing this.
