Sholder Buttons

Post by Apis » Thu Apr 04, 2019 10:43 am

Hello Wermy,

I screwed up. I cut my sholder buttons badly and I am in need of fresh ones. I cant be the only one to do this, so I made a post about it so those in the same boat as me can say so.

Wermy, could you please make listing just for sholder buttons for ding-bats like me? Thank you.

It's not like we have just plain extra shoulder buttons they come as part of a set like you got so unless you buy another button set I doubt you will get just L/R.

Don't contact me about obtaining my board files (as you will not get them). Don't contact me about any of my boards if they are sold out, they will be restocked as soon as I can get them.


Don't support thieves like ckliang who copied my AIO to resell and is now cloning the mintyPi, support the original creators and not the thieves!

You could try cutting the holes bigger and using start/select buttons from a GBColor or Pocket

Is it possible for Wermy to order a production run of just the sholder buttons to sell separately fir the 1-5% of people whom are going to do a bad job cutting like me?

They are one piece, so no real way to sell just the L/R buttons. And ordering a run of just the shoulder buttons isn't an option because again, they are one piece so a new mold would need to be made (which costs quite a lot of $$$) and then a minimum order of 500. Sorry you aren't happy with how your cuts turned out but a new set is the only option I'm afraid (DeiselDummy has a pretty good idea above, too).

That was my plan as well. There aren't any problems with the buttons I received from wermy, just wanted to try something different on the second build. I will be modifying wermys drill template for it too.

Nice. Will you upload your modified template file, or sell a 3d printed version of your template by chance?

I noticed how wide the sholder button's copper pad was, and was wondering if a wide sholder button mintypi was possible.
