Thread: IBM model 8540 bezels.

  1. #1

    Default IBM model 8540 bezels.

    Title: IBM Model 8540 Bezels.

    1-I bought this machine w/o HDD, FDD, Ram and a bad Dallas DS 1287. I installed a 40 Mb HDDD, a FDD, hacked the Dallas DS 1287, installed MSDOS 6.2 + Windows 3.1 and now it is working nice. Now, it got 40 MB HDD, 6 Mb Ram and an Intel 80286 @ 20 Mhz.
    2-It only came with the PSU bezel. I tried to buy the other ones, but with not avail, looks that nobody got them.
    2-I made the bezels on my 3D printers, but I don't have any idea how are the bezels. The one that I made, must be glued on back, because this model doesn't got an internal frame as other IBMs. The Pc looks much better than before with the holes, but I would like to make copies of the original ones.
    ASKING:
    If somebody got the original bezels and can take a few Pics and email them to me, will be nice. Do not worry about dimensions, my interest is IBM solution.
    OFFERING:
    If you want the files ready to 3D printing, just email me. My printer is an Ender Creality 3 Pro and I can send back the files ready to print. They are not too big.
    Ralph.

    FYI the Models 40, 57 and 77 all share the same case and bezels.

    Likewise the Models 35, 56 and 76.

    You might ask Louis if he has some bezels you could borrow/buy.

    I've yet to set up my Creality 3D printer, and have a project to get 3D files of many of the PS/2 bezels created from originals, but I'm U.K.-based.

    I might actually have the bezels I saved from a machine that got twisted up in a car accident. I should have the floppy bezel and the one underneath too

    Looks like I only have the bezel for the floppy drive but you can have it for the price of shipping if you want.
