Hey all - long shot, but looking for the Everten Taito F3 IO board for Stereo AV outs and CPS2 Kick Harness. These seem to be out of stock in the US and the one store in Australia that has them in stock won't ship to Ohio. Anyone have one of these they aren't using by any chance?

Thanks!

If you don't have any luck, get on the waitlist here:

I got an email notification and was able to score one when he restocked.

Hey @yagamikun

I did a pretty large run of boards just a few weeks ago. Sorry you missed out. The issue is with delays in getting parts to build these boards. Some lead times are 6 months out. I used up nearly all of my on-hand parts in the last batch.

@The Z-Man is right, please sign up for wait list. There is already enough on the F3 waitlist for another batch.

If you’re looking to buy one used from someone you might have luck with a WTB on the Arcade Projects forum. This is where most of my original sales came from before selling on Tindie.

Hey, thanks for the hit back! I've already signed up on the wait list. I just got my F3 and am loving it, so got pretty excited when I saw these. No worries, though. I'll wait for the next batch. ^_^ Cheers!

Yeah I'm not positive for this stuff in particular, but the demand for custom cables/adapters is always there.

I know JVS / NAOMI power connectors are like gold lately. At least last time I checked

That's what I've heard. I didn't stash any of those I don't think unfortunately, just parts for a dozen or so Sega control panel harnesses, and a bunch of Ringdedge power cable parts.

I could actually use F3 stereo myself, I may join the wait list or I may get bored and see what I can figure out... but if there are parts shortages inhibiting Everten I would wager they are necessary parts like the female pins that hook to the F3 or something. Stuff like different RCA jacks or revising the PCB gerber for them wouldn't hold someone like that up.

The availability issues are random. It's not a particular part or manufacturer. It seems suppliers are short on everything and getting smaller shipments which sell out faster. I haven't checked in a few weeks, but for example JST has been disabling the ability to order certain parts because demand is too high. When you can get them ordered the lead times are 6-8 months.

It's not economical to order 10 parts here and there. My parts orders are usually in the range of $400-$500. If that's split into small batches the shipping costs add up to be large percentage of overall cost.

Hopefully, I can get some boards built soon!

Your services are definitely appreciated. I'll probably sign up for the lists on Tindie for the items I want, or perhaps send you a message, as in some cases I don't need kick harnesses just sound etc.

Lately I have had to just add shipping to the cost of parts I source, and divide that into my costs. It does definitely suck when you have a project that requires parts from several suppliers which used to come from a single one.

Send me PM when you know what you want.
