Is it possible to dremel off one of the two ports for the GameCube cards on the board and keep only one? Want to make the wii board pretty flat while keeping many of the ports
Thanks

Possibly, but you'll have to be very careful to not cut into the port you're keeping.

You might have more luck with just using some flush cutters to cut the ground pins of the port then bending it until you can cut enough pins for it to come off, then desoldering the broken pins. Obviously the best way would be to desolder it with hot air though.

He means to cut the two-tall thing in half to have one port, which technically could be done with flush cutters as well, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
