    Long time no see. It's been a while since my last post here, but here I am with a new BFS.

    There are no sketchs for this proyect, it's almost 100% improv-modding.

    My idea is to build a portable case for lan parties + a bechtable for OC + something that looks nice in the living room and doesn't freak out the old lady.

    The little "Pacman" like pieces need more sanding, but it's late and I'm tired, I'm gonna do that tomorrow.

    Nice start so far! Is the case going to be open air or are you planning on building a shell around what you already have?

    This is FAIL.
    Never drilling with gloves.
    I am sure , you don't have spare fingers. :D

    Thanks for your comments.

    Always wear protective gloves when drilling aluminum, it could stick to the drillbit and start spinning like hell.

    It's a balancing act between having your fingers cut with spinning parts and having your fingers pulled clean off after getting the gloves stuck in the drill. I prefer to go with option A), as the part shouldn't spin anywhere when properly bolted down, and because cuts are still a bit easier to fix than missing fingers.

    Anyway back to the topic, really liking the design so far, and excellent work with the aluminum. This with a couple of other projects really makes me want to start a project including some thick aluminum panels.
