    @Defyant Mods You're right, 6 pans screws with bolts looks amazing.

    @Jean R built
    In fact Where did you find them ?
    It's been à long time I think to change my threaded steel rods and classics bolts with kind of yours :grin:

    Thanks everyone for the nice comments, I'm happy you like the Thingy :grin:.

    One of the most interesting thing about this project is that now that it's complete everyone has a personal interpretation about it, love it :happy:.

    As for the screws the answer is amazon, I couldn't move from where I live because of COVID restriction in the region, and now it's a couple of years that I live in a small town, so amazon prime changed my buying habits.

    I noticed that I didn't post shots of the inside of the case after the last update on the handles, LCD and the frame.

    Here it is a pic of the storage frame side naked, you can see the path of the cables inside the shell beside the frame.

    [​IMG]

    I'll check if I have something about the LCD side to show, if not I'll take a shot like this one with my phone as it doesn't look the same compared to June.

    Cheers

    A short video of the widgets I made with rainmeter.



    I will evolve it as I become more familiar with its coding, but it's already giving some info and I also have my G15 screen, I will get there.

    Cheers

    Someone may be wondering how the duo is stable even if it looks like they are unbalanced, so for Science I weighed Leetfoot and its weight is 5.3 Kg.

    Most of Leetfoot's weight is in its fingers.

    Taking in consideration this, the finger's length and that the case with all the hardware weighs 12.5 Kg, it might be simpler to understand why it is so stable even when set in odd configurations.

    Cheers

    As I'm testing things out in rainmeter to improve the widgets, here is how it look if you use the AverageSize command line



    The RAM ramp up so fast that it's never that smooth, but on the CPU it looks a lot better now, it doesn't take too much CPU power either so it's all good.

    Cheers
