Need DB25 (male) to SCSI/II 50-pin (internal, male) adapter...
« on: January 02, 2004, 06:26:20 PM »
I need a SCSI adapter with a DB25 male connector on one end and a standard SCSI I/II 50-pin, internal, male connector on the other to use to interface the Blizzard SCSI Kit's SCSI cable with the rest of the inside of a tower.  I bought one of these that had a nice screw hole to be mounted inside a case a while ago from a MicroCenter locally here, but they no longer carry much SCSI I/II stuff.  

Where can I order this adapter?  Thanks.

Same rules apply as with Vesalia...incompetence...however they do stock those so buy at your own risk.

I have always had very good luck with a company called Redmond Cable in Washington state.  They seem to have every cable imaginable, and if they don't, they will custom build it.  Their catalog even still lists Amiga specific cables.

Note: Unfortunately, you need a web browser capable of displaying Flash in order to view their site.

Here is the LINK.

Bump that noise, go with SCSI Source at scsisource.com - reasonable prices (for some items), friendly service. Got a good deal on an 18Gig IBM UltraStar through them.

The MicroCenter in Cambridge, MA has loads of SCSI stuff. You might have some luck getting the part on their website.

Failing that, I also recommend Redmond Cable. Showing them there's still an active Amiga market can't hurt either.

SCSISource, MicroCenter, and Redmond Cable all do not carry this adapter.  I did purchase this very adapter from a local MicroCenter 3 years ago.  I went back and they did not have this one, though they have many SCSI adapters.

It _is_ an odd adapter - I can't imagine a scenario other than someone with a towered A1200 with a CPU-board-based SCSI adapter needing this adapter - a small crowd, relatively speaking...

Any other ideas?

Can't Redmond custom build it for you??  They usually build anything you request.  Probably will cost more, though.

A few years ago I built some of these by hand for customers converting pc cases into external drive boxes. Radio Shack had a little project board  #276-150 that worked well. You could solder a 50 pin to it - using the right holes to buss all the grounds together.. (there's one pin on that side that needs to be isolated, if I recall.) Anyway, I'd get a 25pin m/m cable & cut it in half.. solder 25 wires, and you're done. Ugly, but it worked. :-)

Try RAM Electronics.

I had to use two adapters to get the job done but they work fine. Item#'s were GCU-16051, ADT-21113 and APF-38012 (there are three because I ordered one extra item that day and I'm not sure which is which, but I'm sure you can look them up on their site.)

Anyway here's what they look like mounted in my Power Tower:
