Just ridiculously good, I applaud you sir.
This has got to be true Craftsmanship at it's best!
I have seen several diff mods but none with such elegance.
Wow great mod. I think I liked it without the wood and just the aluminium though, not a big fan of wood. Great job on it though congrats.
"Mother of God" indeed .
Beautiful, I read your whole log once again. Can't get enough of it. Nice yob.
Most builds where wood is included doesnt impress me much since im educated as a furniture builder.
But DAMN, your build is awesome! Surface finish seems to be very nice done which is hard to do.
And the way it looks like one of those spitting b*tch*s from jurassic park makes it fearsome looking and totally beautiful at the same time.
Thougt i wouldnt be drewling again until i reached the age of 80 - 90.
Kepp working on those skills, your an artist !
Mod of the year 2009!
the moment i saw that round chisel hitting the timber was when my jaw flopped open, and it didn't close till i looked away from those final pics. OMG i seriously welled up just looking at that. not even joking. best mod iv ever seen *bows down*
Very talented man (1st ever post, i''ve joined up just to shout about how good this creation is!)
I've only ever seen mods to exhisting cases but this is a custom built from scratch work of art, amazing.
Mod of the year (possibly decade ;-) )
I believe the word im looking for is 'Thunderstruck' what an amazing example of fine craftsmanship, as well as the sincerity to humbly admit the mistakes made along the way, and recover from them with a truly EPIC case. Mod ON !!
Hello friend, I'm from Brazil and monitored throughout the project, I have a question, as you did this piece image link assembly: http://images.bit-tech.net/content_images/2009/12/cygnus-x1 - by -attila-lukacs-oldnewby/pic-207.jpg
I would like to explain step-by-step how this piece was made in particular.Parabéns the project very well done.
Thank you all for the comments.
Hey ramonvitorqo and welcome to Bit-tech.
The photo you describe is of the front panel lifting assembly. This is made from 3mm plate,
two telescoping pieces of "U" channel and some brass spacers and nylon washers. A much
more thorough description is given in the project log on this page.http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=157732&page=51
HIOldnewby , thank you for detailed explanation of the assembly of the front elevation, I am very grateful to you.
I have drooled over this mod for weeks now.... I cannot think of a more aesthetically pleasing piece! Definately a strong candidate for MOTY as IMHO it is the only one I could 'live' with long term.
Well done and will you build one for me?
This is by far one of the most beautiful pieces of art i've seen so far on bit-tech. Very nice work indeed. Loooking forward to your next project.
Obviously, you are an artistic and engineering genius, and thank you for taking the time to post your computer mod and for documenting it too.
