So this is some good news. I sent my PCB bracket design to PCBCart for a quote.
Turns out we can do this brackets for $1.26 each, quantity 50 plus tooling ($20) and
shipping. So for $5.00 I could get everyone one bracket or better yet Qty 100 they drop
to $.84 cents and you can get two. This price is hard to beat. I don't think we can do any
better. If go nuts, qty 200 are .58 cents!

I don't have my IMSAI a disassembled but that kind of bracket did it use?
Sent from my iPhone
of the board houses. I know my board house does these.
Frank did a great job on the bracket. He was kind enough to build a prototype and
shipped to me complete with screws at his own expense. Thanks again Frank. I
truly appreciate the effort.
The bracket in the dxf drawing is great however I would consider it a permanent part.
The bracket has to sit under the switch flange. Screws pass through the flange
and thread into the bracket. So once the switches are soldered in the bracket can not
I took Franks bracket which was made out of PCB material, cut a slot in one side and
then was able to lift the bracket off from underneath the switches. Had the bracket been
made out of steel or aluminum it would have gotten bent/distorted.
My modified design is basically just a flat bar 1/2 inch wide with tails that extend one
inch that can be use for mounting. You'll have to cut, trim and drill depending on your
chassis design. Two of these bars could be used for the top and bottom of the switch
which would add more strain relief.
If we want a better bracket perhaps this would be a better design. It could be used as
a soldering jig or a removable mounting bracket. It will involve more effort/expense.
I'm thinking it could be made from PCB material and we could have it done by one
So what do ya think? Keep those suggestions coming.

For one that is interesting by building it by yourself, i provide the DXF file attached.
