The better part of a year and a half ago I created my third portable Nintendo 64 called “The Nimbus II”. This was probably my best work I’d ever done and the least heard about project I’d ever completed. The previous N64p “The Nimbus 64” remains my heaviest hitter when it came to popular interest. However that was long ago and alas, even it’s half sized kin is still just sitting on the shelf.
With that said, I’ve found myself in a rather unique situation that’s allowed me to pursue these skill sets that I’ve acquired over the years to be put to practical use. However, cash is always an obstacle that needs to be over come.
The goal here is to get about a grand ($1000 USD) saved up to purchase a table top CNC router/engraver, the likes of which 16-year-old UK modding prodigy [Electro Modder] uses in his workshop. With this I’ll be able to do the prototyping and small run production that will be required to fuel my progress. On top of having this in house, I’ll also be hopefully finishing up my new vacuum forming machine that in combination with the CNC capabilities will really push me in the right direction.
So, here’s the deal. Parts alone in this unit are worth about $250 (the Li-Po batteries and PS1 Screen make up almost half that). That’s all I’m looking to recoup as it’s going to be used to get me the equipment I need to continue. The charger is not included but I’ll provide a link to the one that’s needed.
Also to help fuel this along, I’ll be re-casing my Geneboy portable and be putting that up for sale as well. I’ll only be asking $200 for that (or B.O.) So that should give me at least a good start on the router. I’ll also be taking any case commission that comes my way so if you need a custom casing done up for your next project, please send me the details!
But at any rate, here are some more pics of the Nimbus II. Please let me know if you’re interested!
*UPDATE* This unit has been sold and is on it’s way to Florida! Thanks StarKiller!
