October 27th - Indicator Lights

Thanks. I don't have much of a sample set to compare it too, but I'm happy with it for now. I'll admit that I'm surprised by the stability of the temperatures. Even after running games for hours,...

I was surprised at how nice it looks too. I thought the blue would be an unavoidable distraction. I wanted to keep the fans to churn the oil, but I don't believe paint will hold up well, so I was...

I'll also point out, I'm not done yet. Next week I'll be adding a bunch of finishing touches. Some time after that, proper "I'm done!" photos.

October 20th - Immersion Part 2

Oh no, I'm not done yet. THAT was last week's post. THIS is today's. :D

With oil ready to go, it's time to test the fluid circuit. I figure I should run it a few days before committing to using it...

October 20th - Immersion Part 1

So we had a bit of a skip-week last week. Sorry about that. Here, let me make it up to you, I've prepared a special dinner, to say I'm sorry. :D

Oh those do look lovely. I really wish I could manage a place for a demolition plunger like that, but it'd be such an extensive change in plans. Working that into a design is practically a mod all by...

October 7th - lingering details

So, guess who didn't buy enough marine epoxy? Yeah, it's never quite easy with me. :wallbash:

Some wiring, the epoxy, and about five gallons of mineral oil are all that stand between me and the...

September 30th - Epoxy

September, 22nd - Drilling

This post is a little threadbare because I've been digging around for one sodding tube of epoxy that hasn't hardened into an unusable mass. :wallbash:

I have managed to make some progress. I've...
