Amiga A1200 Hood??
« on: September 17, 2015, 03:01:15 AM »
Hi all, Posting my first message from my A1200... Hopefully
more to come.  I am looking for this cover, not sure what
to call it.  It's that thing that fits over your Amiga and
then you can set you Monitor on it. Used to have one ages
ago. Don't know if they are still available, anybody know?
Thanks

And they make plugging / unplugging anything on your Amiga a challenge! I've got a perspex one.

Think they are called a workstation. Quite cool as you can store your psu, floppy etc underneath the monitor

LOL.  Around these parts we would just call it a monitor stand.  Google, plenty of examples of how to make your own,  or if you want one that's Amiga-specific, try posting a "wanted" ad over on Amibay.  Maybe even email a few Amiga retailers, maybe they've got some kicking around collecting dust in the back, somewhere.  ;)  Good luck!

There was one monitor stand called "Amisound". It was advertised in Amazing.
It was a power director with a pair of audio inputs and volume controls.

Amigans,  Thanks for all the help, the one on Amibay looks good, but I'm not in the UK so
it's cost preventive.  Will think about making my own.
Cheers

Hey, just found this site "http://awesome.commodore.me/about/pgarcia/crt-monitor-stand-for-less-the-15/" And ordered the pieces for this Monitor stand.  Check out the site for all the
info.  Worth it if you are interested.
