I use that Mighty Putty stuff, but made by locktite. I think its expensive, $4 per tube, I get it at Wal Mart, or something like that..

Bumpity bump

I have recently come into some money so I will now be able to buy a dremel and a new tip for my soldering iron! Finally!

I was thinking about this dremel from Ace Hardware

Is that one good, if anyone knows?

I might move this to modretro :?

That looks like the dremel I use; it works very well :) No need to "move" it, but you can certainly have it on both

I went to Ace and the only one they had was one with a box already open, so I got the 300 series model. 24 attachments, variable speed, and other awesome stuff. I also went to my local used video game store to use up a few gift cards I had and i got Pokemon Stadium.

IT'S ALIVE! MUAHAHAHAHAHA!

So I finally got everything wired up to the battery. I re-relocated the cartridge slot with new wires (the old ones didn't bend very well. the ones i am using now are the computer ones that everyone uses), wired up the screen to the battery, and also cut down the boards so they would fit in the case. There looks like there might be a bit of distortion in video and audio, so i will probably have to use bigger wire, but i just don't see how I could squeeze on anything bigger than that computer wire. Also, I know it can be trimmed down quite a bit, but just how much of the jumper pack can i cut off?

And you could wire it down, and save a bit more space:

That's an image of the jumper pack being pretty much ripped apart and wired after the ram transplant.

On jumper packs you can generally cut off the 3 sides with the copper ground

That is a little more complicated than I would like to do, but thanks anyway. for the connections to the screen, could I use a small bit of small wire and the rest could be 22-gauge, or would it not even help and I would only be creating more work for myself?

I like that :wink:

You can use something like IDE wire or bigger, smaller, whatever to make your connections to your screen. Controller wire works very well from what I've experienced :) Power does need to be about 22 gauge, but that's the only thing that does.
