Physically installing the reader in a Emax rack

Post by Say Again » Wed May 21, 2014 10:20 am

Hey all,

So far I have a reader in my MPC60 and SP1200. Very stoked on the product.

Next up is my Emax rack. I starting installing the HXC a LONG time ago and put the project on hold because the reader is larger than the face plate floppy drive opening. It seems I will need to sand the opening somehow to widen the width of the hole to be able to comfortably fit the reader?

I am surprised no one else has posted this concern - perhaps I am overlooking a more simple solution? If I were to shave a few centimeters off what sort of tool would I want to do that?

So I should clarify that I have already bought this model: http://lotharek.pl/product.php?pid=120

It is a few centimeters too wide to fit in the emax opening. When I reassemble the unit it will not all the face plate to be screwed back on comfortably because the card reader sticks too far out.

Seems some other folks on here installed a card reader in a Emax rack. I was curious if I am overlooking something.
