HP-67 / battery door - latch
Gentlemen:

I'm looking for one / a pair of these original battery door latches / door bar for my HP-67. These latches are located at the top of the battery door (top left & top right) Unfortunally one of these small green latches are gone since years. Many thanks for your help in advance ... !!!

RE: HP-67 / battery door - latch
Nate Martin modeled the latches for the classic battery door. But they don't fit for the HP-67. Perhaps somebody (or I) could create a 3D model for the HP-67 latches soon.

That's one small step for a man - one giant leap for mankind.

Ok, I will try to get to the door and latches for a HP67 soon. I need to finish the battery door for a 75 first.

I am hoping to have some available soon. These will be 3D printed copies. I have a couple of samples printed in gray. I now have some military green filament that is a really good match for the original color. A friend of mine has the 3D printer, and I bought the filament to give to him, so I will check on his progress !

Cheers,
John

RE: HP-67 / battery door - latch
I'm interested too! I could use a dozen or so.

My interim solution works, but doesn't look very good. That is to take the broken latch - (assuming you have the pieces) place them together as they would be, and glue a small patch of thin plastic over the top. This connects and supports the two broken pieces. I use old collar stays.

It would be great to have some replacements.

Mostly I need the door. Mine (from a used 67) is warped like the battery got too hot. One of the latches is broken but still sort of works. And only need one.

RE: HP-67 / battery door - latch
If I had a door to work from I could probably print a door with latches. I made a door for classic series recently. See photos...

Looks good! What about the door itself? That is what I need. (having them all would be best)

Thanks!
