Packing boxes for STE and STFM

Postby rickyelqasem » Thu Feb 22, 2018 12:24 pm

I recently purchased 1 x STFM and 2 x STE to restore what I can to former glory. I haven't touched an STE in about 30 years so looking forward to getting back in the saddle. I would like to build some complete units and I think the one thing I'm missing is boxes. Where can I get just the boxes and packing foam? Does anyone want to part with them? I don't plan to part with my STs again but I would for them to be complete as possible.

It's going to be a hard task to get decent ones.

This is why I made falcon (and other) boxes before.

For these I also had a company making poly inserts..not original but accurate.

I was recently thinking to reproduce the white STF/FM/E boxes without model number too. These boxes existed before and on the side you had to cross what system you actually have.
I have one of these so basically have everything to get going....but of course printers need minimum orders and most of my collection is in boxes already....

I have an original french 1040 STF box - just the empty box, no insides.
Shipping will likely be a pain, depending on your location.

If Robson re-made the white STF/FM/e boxes I'd take two.

I already purchased the Atari Falcon 030 boxes from him and they really do help "complete" a collection.

Albeit my collection will now take up 2x the space it once did without boxes:)
