    Glad you like it man:D And you can be sure that I was a happy man when he agreed to do the parts ;)

    Thanks Justin! I am proberly still going to need your help on the entire window system:D

    Looks nice! I just dont have the room for a that large machine :(

    Thanks!

    Thanks man! I am also quite pleased with how small it ended out being!

    Now isn't that a compliment! Thanks man!

    I hope it is spindle based. Every cnc should be spindle based:D

    Small update on the sleeving. Nate George was kind enough to ship me a few samples of the Teleios sleeving, and I instantly new that it would be what I was going to use in the case! Along with his cable combs, sleeving has just gotten so much more fun:D

    [​IMG]

    First I had to take apart the case to do the wires that came down from the motherboard, and the wires from the harddrive on the side.

    [​IMG]

    After that I fixed the fans that are going to sit in the pedestal.

    [​IMG]

    Only needed power wires from one of the fans. If you solder together all 3 wires, you will mess up the signal from the fans, and not get a precise RPM reading.

    [​IMG]

    Cut to length and sleeved. It is hard, but enjoyable to get the sleeving and heatshrink in place properly in fans. Worth it in the end though.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Fans finished and ready to mount. Still need some minor parts so that they can be mounted to the pedestal.

    [​IMG]

    Wires for the 24 pin cut to length and crimped. This took far longer time than I want to admit.

    [​IMG]

    Worth it though. The original wire was faaaaar to long.

    [​IMG]

    The aftermatch. Need to clean this up, and get some pictures taken:D

    I'm still lurking in the shadows. :)
    And when pOPe approached me with the drawings for this, I had to jump aboard.
    This project is just amazing! :thumb:

    You definitely need a short loom for an S3,I think the longest cable I ran was 12",most where around 9".

    +1 on the sleeve too,lovely stuff indeed.

    Still £400 shy of the £1300 needed. Iwent with the Kress 1050fme and usb controller so it bumped the price a lot!

    I'm putting more bracing in mine too,as well as making much larger end brackets.

    Naughty :nono: lol

    I was thinking of buying a large plastic tray big enough to stand the whole machine in ( available on ebay ) and use a cheap submersible pump like the one's for fish tanks in the tray with a long flexible tube fixed to the cutter, of course the MDF bed would have to be replaced with something that wont soak up the cutting fluid.

    And I am glad you did it:D

    Thanks! It also kinda killed my fingers.

    Yeah, I think I cut more than half of the cables away:D

    As long as it is fun, I will keep on doing it:D

    I never mind being the center of attention :lol:

    Just need some nice music:D

    Small update, but an update never the less:D

    [​IMG]

    Needed to mount the fans to the side of the pedestal. I wanted to mount them so that I could easily take them out and clean it. I also did not want the radiators to get loose if I wanted to take out the fans.

    [​IMG]

    They sit in place by friction, and can be pulled out if they have to.

    [​IMG]

    And the spacers used.

    Simple is better:D
