Amiga Kickstart switch
This interface was designed by me and is intended for the Amiga's of type 500 / 500+ / 600 / 2000.
I have tried to make the footprint as small as possible so that eventually the newer versions of the internal IDE interface fit next to the Kickswitch and the Amiga 500 / 500+ simply with metal housing and can already be closed.
The kick switch enables you to use, for example , a kickstart 2.05 or 3.1 in addition to your Kickstart 1.3 .
The Amiga Kickstart Switch replaces your current ROM and is controlled by an Eprom that can contain at least 2 different versions. The Eprom with 1 or more versions is not included as standard with this package.
Unlike most low budget kickswitches that are offered through various channels, this model also offers full support for the Amiga 500 Revision 3/5 which have a different pinout on the ROM socket. This is solved by moving a single jumper.
You can also use this interface to combine your own KickROM with the Amiga diagnostic Rom

Excellent service! Since my A600 was slightly modified, and there wasn't much room around the kickstart socket, he went out of his way to make a tailor made version for me which would fit in my Amiga.
Additionally, our emails began not always arriving to each other (went on for several days), but he still continued trying to reach me in various ways (both before and also even *after* i had paid the money).
Not because he strictly speaking had to, but because he wanted to ensure the products would be right for me and fit correctly inside my slightly modified amiga.
I already had a double kickstart switch but that was connected wit a flat cable and taped all around to prevent shorting inside the case.
To get the most out of the external ide interface i ordered it was best to get a new kickstart switch and this one fits perfectly and is very well built.
Again a fine quality product.
This works perfectly!
