This is a two part system of a 3d-printable plastic carrier, and a blank template for a PCB that snaps into the carrier.

Together, this makes a module that fits into a Molex 78802/78805/15-29-9282 socket, in place of the original carrier and DIP chip.

These sockets are used in at least:

Tandy models 100, 102, 200, & 600
Epson PX-4 & PX-8.


Source CAD files for both carrier and pcb:

Carrier: Shapeways Sculpteo Thingiverse
