Beogram 4002 (5513) Remote Control: Now With a 3D Printed Installation Tray

This entry is a follow-up to my recent posts about my Beogram 4002 (5513) remote control (check out the YouTube video). I recently drew up a plastic 'tray' that insulates the receiver board inside the turntable from the solder points on the main circuit board (my temporary approach to tape a plastic foil to the bottom of the PCB was not very beolovely in my opinion...;-). Yesterday, I received the part. I designed the tray to make a press-fit with the circuit board, so there are no bolts needed, it simply clicks into place. Here are a few impressions:

Tray and board before assembly:

The three rectangular recesses in the tray give the solder points of the through-hole parts some space.

I am planning to design one more part, which will allow the bolting of the receiver board to the main PCB of the turntable utilizing the original screw that is underneath the receiver. More about this in the next update.
