Wizztronics Rack Case for the Atari Falcon 030

Postby DarkLord » Fri Oct 13, 2017 1:29 am

After some considerable thought I've decided to stuff my Atari Falcon back
into its original case. So, I've got a Wizztronics Rack case for sale. Built
like a freakin' tank, with lots of room for expansion. This includes the case,
an ATX P/S, Deka keyboard interface, mounting hardware for the floppy drive, a
3.5" hard drive, as well as a slot for something like a CD-ROM or DVD drive.
Interface cables for the cartridge port and MIDI In/Out are included too. An
adapter lets you plug the P/S directly into the Falcon's motherboard, or with
the included extension, into a CT60 accelerator board. Very high quality item.

Also very heavy - will ship worldwide but be prepared for high shipping costs.
Buyer pays all shipping and handling.

Thanks.

I'm looking at this and thinking I'd like to put my Falcon into one. Does it have outputs on the back for the VGA/DVI connectors from a SuperVidel? I think if it has that and can get the SCSI internal, or at least wrapped in nicely from the back for the CosmosEx, I wouldn't mind a case like this!

Hmm, I thought I put a picture of the back up on Ebay but
apparently I didn't - or maybe it didn't go through? Anyway,
my bad.

Here is an older picture of the rear, after I first moved my
first Falcon into it.

There are cut-outs for several options. The SuperVidel wasn't
even in existence when this case was first made so I'm not
sure about your question there. There is NOT any VGA ports
that I can see on the back. However, there are several other
openings on the back that would probably serve as a "pass thru"
for any cable, for example, the enhanced joystick ports, of
which I never found any cables for. That's just an example.

There are SCSI cut-outs on the back of the case and I am
including SCSI cables with it.

Hope this helps! :)

Okay, snapped some better pictures. Hope this
makes it easer for everyone to see just how well
thought out this case was. :)

Nice! It does look like there are some options there. I figured it wouldn't have perfect holes for it, but it does look like there is the Video Interface port that might be wide enough for VGA and DVI. I know I have seen some extenstion cables for the Jaguar controllers, though they don't have the screw mounts.

I may have to try and bid for this then...
