Does anyone in North America have a spare A500 rubber foot - the little circular pad on the bottom of the machine? I'm in need of just one. They sell them in the EU in packs of 4, but the shipping costs 4X the cost of the rubber feet!

If you do please let me know. I'd cover the cost of shipping and a touch more.

Do you absolutely need a white one? I know Home Depot sells clear ones if you can deal with one of a different color.

This is going on a near mint boxed 500, so ideally I get it looking pretty close.

I'm pretty sure I have what you need. But I need to go to my storage to find it. I have an A500 in there that is just the mainboard and the bottom case as the top of the case was broken to bits. I am pretty sure it has all the feet. I use it as a parts board. I'll send you the best one for exactly zero. :D

I'll check in the morning. I packed the system in paper wrap and it is in a new temperature controlled facility so it should be clean.

Update: I found a rubber foot for you and in pretty decent condition. Send me a PM and I can get sent it out on Monday or send you some pics.

I know it's not exactly the option you are looking for, but I had an order from amikit a few months ago and threw in a few of their listed "feet" since it didn't move the needle on the shipping costs. They were a perfect match for my A1200 and A500 as far as I could tell. Low-gloss finish, softer durometer than typical cabinet door bumpers, and fit the same diameter as the originals. The only gripe would be they were more of a paper white color so the stood out a bit from the creamy 30 year old plastic.

I should have done this to begin with. Here's a photo of one of my 500's rubber feet - the one on the left.

The foot in the plastic baggie on the right is the one Zippy Zapp kindly sent me. You can see the shape is different. Who knew the 500 had evolving feet?

So I'm still on the hunt for one of those you see on the left - more of a straight sided cylinder. (And thanks again, ZZ!)
