    They are stainless 4mm machined pins and plastic bushes. I bought them at a model supply
    store here in Oz. You probably have model engineering stores near you. I ordered them on
    line and got them in the mail two months later. :eyebrow: I won't be using their services again.

    Thanks Shadow. :)

    That sounds like a silly delivery time :blah:. 4mm stainless pins shouldn't be too hard to fabricate on my own. It would be those bushings though, they seem pretty hard to get. I have looked in a couple of electronic/mechanical stores but they do not seem to have what I am looking for. Just have to search a bit more I guess :)

    This is soooo well deserved.
    Loving your logs. Loving your build. Loving your woodwork.

    MDPC should be proud that you agreed to post pictures on their site :thumb:

    Thank you Attila for having done new pictures for MDPC. The additional adjustments of the old ones now generate a gallery that we will be able to look at in 10-20 years and still love what you did in 2008,2009,2010. Well done - welcome to immortality :) The people all over the globe love what you did and so do I :)

    Thanks a lot everyone. :thumb:

    This case has appeared on at least 25 sites that I know of, and no-one has asked my
    permission or let me know that my photos were going to be displayed. At the very least
    Nils asked me if the case can be displayed on MDPC but in reality he did a fantastic job of
    playing with the pics I sent him. I am happy with the way the case is displayed and I've even
    changed the link in my sig to refer back to his site. :)

    This is not a PC it is truly a work of art. I can definitely see this on display in the Smithsonian Museum. Wonderful pics too.

    Amazing craftmanship!!
    This is the best build I´ve ever seen:thumb:
    Is this what you all days or just a hobby? You should be professional if still just do it on side of your normal work.

    I'm reluctant to keep posting in this thread but good wishes and comments
    deserve to be acknowledged.

    BROWNCOAT, Thanks and Welcome to Bit-tech. :clap: When you slap those hunks of
    wood to your case make sure you take some pics and show us. ;)
