    <--However, you do get a lot of people prodding you to do stuff.:D
    It sounds like you have a dust filter mask instead of a chemical resperator. Either that or it's gone off. I found out the hard way that painting masks can go bad. I had a fun time trying to drive home that night. They start stinking of fumes inside even when you aren't painting.

    Voyager has 7 of 9, I have 1 of 4. First handle cut out:
    Set the jig:

    First cut done with jigsaw and metal blade - noisy!!!

    From the mother board side:

    From the door side:

    Now from the top:

    I forgot the front view:

    I need to cut off the width of the masking tape and make 3 more. Grind them smooth, and on and on.

    I'll be at the bench for a while.:dremel:

    Mod on

    John, just letting you know I decided to vote for your mod this month. Good luck on the polls, even though you need to add some MDF wood panels on it to make it 'cool'. ;) :hehe:

    Thanks E.E.L. for the vote. But for the wood I'm more of a teak and mahogany modder than MDF (too dusty) LOL

    John --> If you know anyone who can mill those for you, get it done! You've done a crazy good job, but if you cut them 1-2mm from the edge, and get them milled, they will be straight and perfect! :) And you won't have to sand and all that! :)

    I still have the machine shop guys lurking in the background, but I kind of like the "by my own hand" style. Besides, I am having fun and learning a ton!

    The last movie quote nobody remembered was from "Day After Tomorrow" when the dude falls through the glass ceiling of a mall.

    Today's quote: "In the pipe 5 by 5. Where's the D**n landing lights?"

    I found a great carry case for Sacrilege! It goes with me everywhere now. I'll include a pic in the next update.

    Grumbles under his breath - "I say you cut out the four corner splices, then add a center panel made from the logo area on top to hide your seams."

    Sounds simple:wallbash:

    Actually, that's a slight misquote John. "Where's the damn beacon?" is correct. Sorry...bit of a hardcore ALIENS fan if you hadn't already guessed. ;) :D

    Baby's new bag

    I mentioned that I found a carry bag for Sacrilege in another post. Here it is - Sacrilege now goes everywhere with me.

    Front view:
    [​IMG]

    Nice top handle. Remember how light she is:
    [​IMG]

    Top open. Bottom feet installed and one handle for height measurement:
    [​IMG]

    This is why it fits. Cool humped up top:
    [​IMG]

    I can remove the embroidered lettering on the front with a seam ripper. Or not. It's not important, but it's tacky.

    It almost actually weighs nothing - even with the outside pockets full of pieces not yet fitted.

    A place for everything and everything in it's place.
    John
