Thanks-wait...are you complimenting the knob?

I got the parts up and running last night. I forgot about the Windows account brick wall.

I like you but I don't want nothing to do with your knob. Sorry to disappoint.

On a more serious note: I was complimenting your ingenuity when it comes to building stuff without having the right tools.

@Shinji -'splains why all the fingernail clippers around here are dull. -No, That's because they are for wire cutting.
@Bartacus -You assume I have teeth.
@Jipa -Thanks. Ah, Tonkputer. It would have been perfect if he made little controls for the cow to operate. My tank is only a 5 gallon, and I plan to chop it down to about 3 1/2.

-I've heard about engines that could turn off some of their pistons, but this is the first time I've seen one.

-FM2+ is a huge chunk of real estate. Here I'm setting up for a first boot of everything.

-I had to mod my temp rig, so out came some heavy paper to trace the rad holes. I sacrificed the pen punching the holes here for bolt spacers later.

-That should be enough fanguard.

-How awesomely bad is this? Ghetto res held on with zip ties, hardware store hose, mismatched barbs, wire bird's nest, and an optical swiped from someone else's rig. Everything runs, and the Apogee block looks neat. The cooler on the windforce card works pretty good too. I probably wouldn't need to watercool it, but where's the fun in that?

-I feel oily just looking at this pic. MAN, was that a messy session.

-From this angle they look pretty good. but...

-I cut them the same way I cut plexi. I've already prepped a new billet to do them over right.

-I cut out some braces to fit between the fans on the tank. That area will need a lot of help staying round.

-I've re-cut the motherboard mounts. I even got the countersinks on the right sides this time. I coded the cut with a double pass, so the finish is much better. Up to now, I thought I could skimp on time and cut them with a single profile channel but just throw more oil at it.

-This little alien is a back panel for the switches in the piston head.

-I started collecting these spare compression caps from all my plumbing parts. I'm not sure what they are going to be used for yet. It's slowly sinking in how much plumbing I've done lately, though.

On that note: I gotta go swap out a toilet. fun. -Expect fewer updates for a while. I have a ton of real-world stuff to do.

Thanks again to my sponsors:

Right? The worst part is I knew this would happen if I didn't re-code, but did it anyway. I got lazy and figured I could sand them down. Now I'm thinking it's easier to do them over.

Yes, Mad scientist lair is the decor plan. The damn lace curtains totally ruin it, though.


-Ooh, OILY Christmas. It's not as fun as it sounds.

-The mess above yielded a new set of brackets. The old set on the left will give you an idea why I redid them.

-I had to epoxy something, and the caps on the epoxy were glued shut, so I had to cut the tubes and use the whole batch. I brought the piston head along to use up the excess. The plan is to sand the whole thing flat, so the grooves become grey stripes.

-I bored and countersunk four of the bracket holes for screw pass-through. The rest were drilled and tapped.

-I used a small bit to make a start point for a 9/64 bit on the motherboard tray.

-I then used those holes to mount the brackets. The small bit came out again to mark the next set of holes. I'm using some high-tech card stock shims here to keep the brackets even.

-Mounted. Next up I need four tapped holes in the polycarbonate arm-thing. The fun part will be figuring out how to get this awkward shaped goober in the drill press vice.
I'll get back to it when I've slept off my turkey-drunk.

A little reminder who has made all this possible:

That's a lot of swarf .

How long did it take to cut those brackets out?

As for rough edges on the billet: I am discovering good quality engineering files. It's amazing how quickly they can remove excess arterial cleanly and create a smooth, even finish.

The whole thing is going from 0 to tasty in 3.5 seconds!

Thanks.
@Shinji - About an hour at 7IPM.
@Nexxo - The first set was really bad. I would have to shave off 1/16" of material at least.
-And when have I not been tasty?
Yeah, The Swiss files I have are finally getting some use. They clog up pretty easily with plexi, but they just eat up aluminum.
