Turing Pi 2 standoffs?
# │forum
j
Probably a silly question, but the TPI2 product page has standoffs (https://turingpi.com/product/turing-pi-2/) that are rather tall, looking to purchase something similar but struggling to find a good source online to purchase something similar? I'm probably not using the right search terms. Has anyone purchased these recently and have any recommendations?
... and of course, as soon as I post I stumble across this: https://openbenchtable.com/mini/ but these are definitely pricey and seem a little overboard...

And, if you have a 3D printer, I made this: https://www.printables.com/model/451245-mini-itx-tray-for-turing-pi-2 I'll be building whoel open bench for Turing Pi 2 in a near future

If you just want plain old standoffs, no platform or anything, you can find those on Amazon or similar. A lot of different options as far as how you'd like to create those "legs" If you have a 3D printer @DhanOS (Daniel Kukiela) 's platform works well, if you want to elevate the board a bit, another option is this one: https://www.printables.com/model/456193-turing-pi-2-basic-stand

I went to DigiKey for standoffs, but I'm in the US. They have too many choices, making it difficult to decide.

Trying to navigate Mouser or Digikey for that kind of stuff is a miserable experience. I usually just opt for the Amazon assortments, and that serves the purpose.

I was experimenting with a number of #6-32 standoff lengths to maximize clearance under the TPiv2 while still supporting an I/O shield. Doing that with a bulk kit would have been difficult and wasteful. Next, I want to desolder all the on-board mPCIe and M.2 standoffs, replacing them with removable standoffs that have screws with larger heads and shafts. Amazon is very good for some things, but not everything.

@Terarex (Dan Donovan) can you send me the ones you ordered? If possible?
I see so many hits on Amazon with 320pcs

Can do. If you look through the Thermaltake Tower 100 forum, I posted photos and comments about my build. The case uses #6-32 standoffs. The standoff 's treaded shaft is not fully threaded, so a small (#2?) flat washer is required. What length(s) do you want? I have 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4" and 1". Started with 1/2", but the clearance was too tight. Initially, I didn't believe that 1" would allow a custom I/O shield, but it does and there is sufficient space for my big, arthritic hands.
1" part.

Haha, I found that and downloaded it and it works great! I need to upload the make
