Wanted: PLCC68 ITT Cannon socket

Post by Quickie »

Hi,

I'm trying to find a PLCC68 ITT Cannon socket for my STF MMU socket which is currently damaged and seems quite difficult.

I've seen exxos socket adaptor, but I would prefer to mantain the motherboard original if possible.

I found one site to have it, but despite doing a request I had no response from the admin.

Does anyone have a spare unit that could sell me?

Thank you

Even though they are currently listed as "out of stock" on his site, you could ask Chris (Exxos) if he has some -- sockets, I mean, not adapters.

Then, this shop claims to sell them: http://atari.team-yankee.net/pages/atar ... e/shop.php. (Or was this the site where you asked without success?)

Hi czietz,

Thanks for pointing out that Chris could have some.
I'll contact him.

Yes, that is the site, but as I was unsure if I could post the address I prefered to omit it.
I even found that the admin is a member of this forum and sent him a pm, but couldn't contact either.

Cheers

Hi,

Finally bought a Exxos socket adaptor. The ITT Cannon socket price was out of my budget.
Although this solution is not a straight replacement (involved playing around a little bit trimming pins, soldering), proved to work flawlessly, so very happy to save another st :)

Good to hear that you found a solution. I see that Exxos now has a few sockets in stock in his store, although of course the adapter is less pricey.
Did the owner of the Black Cat Hardware store ever get back to you? I saw that he was active on this forum again in the last few days.

Hi,

Thank you. Yes, Chris restocked ITT Cannon sockets, but their cost + package was noticeable higher than his adaptor.

Regarding Black Cat, no, didn't have any reply from him. I even wrote him a pm here, hope everything is ok.
