Cardboard foil shield - Type 1 for the breadbin C64

Cardboard foil shield for the breadbin C64 (Type 1)

  • The simplest (earliest) RF shield used in breadbin 64s.
  • These are used parts and will have some marks etc but no serious wear and tear.
  • Note: Unfortunately they're too long for Royal Mail's large letter size (without folding them)  so the shipping price for UK buyers is higher than may be expected.
Price: £ 2.99   Add to cart. (1 in stock)
Cardboard foil shield - Type 2 for the breadbin C64

Cardboard foil shield for the breadbin C64 (Type 2)

  • Probably the most common RF shield used in breadbin 64s.
  • These are used parts, in good (but not perfect) condition. No tears or serious wear however.
  • Note: Unfortunately they're too long for Royal Mail's large letter size (without folding them)  so the shipping price for UK buyers is higher than may be expected (makes little difference overseas).

Cardboard foil shield - Type 3 for the C64C

Cardboard foil shield for the C64C - Type 3 - Short Board

  • This is probably the most common type of RF shield used in the C64C, ie: those with narrow boards (mostly 85xx series chips) and metal support brackets for the keyboard.
  • These are used parts, in good (but not perfect) condition. No tears or serious wear however.
  • Note: Unfortunately they're too long for Royal Mail's large letter size (without folding them)  so the shipping price for UK buyers is higher than may be expected (makes little difference overseas).

Cardboard foil shield - Type 4 for the C64C

Cardboard foil shield for the C64C - Type 4 - Long board

  • This is the RF shield used in early C64Cs with long boards (breadibin type) and occasionally the common short boards (attached with a screw and washer on the left side).
  • These are used parts, in good (but not perfect) condition. No tears or serious wear however.
  • Note: Unfortunately they're too long for Royal Mail's large letter size (without folding them)  so the shipping price for UK buyers is higher than may be expected (makes little difference overseas).

Stamped Metal Top Shield / Heatsink - Later C64s

Stamped Metal RF Shield / Heatsink for later C64s

  • Often found in some later model breadbin C64 with motherboard assy 250425 - these stamped metal sheets were a combined RF shield and heatsink. The metal tabs do tend to bend away from the tops of the chips making the heatsink feature somewhat dubious but they can be easily bent back down if desired. 
  • These are original parts in good, though by no means perfect condition. There will be marks and some discolouration but no major areas of rust etc.
