Gotta love the shipping costs some shops charge, don't you?
Great to see you're back at work.
Ah, now I see (about the PSU.)
It's good to see you back at it.
I love the convenience of online ordering to find those hard to get parts, cheaply... but I hate those stores that ream you on shipping!
Damn that's a lot for shipping lol. I thought I got ripped of for $15 shipping on a $15 piece of plexi (500x500) lol. Coming together nicely my friend, can't wait for more.
Thanks, guys. I'm going to try to get the frame together sometime next week. so I'm leaving myself a checklist here. (sorry about using Bit Tech for a notepad again.)
cut motherboard tray
glue frame rails
cut pass-through bolt holes in frame
cut optical hole -or leave it for later?
That's taking it one step too far, Cheaps! Modding a case, scratch build, even OTT stuff... okay. Modding your balls just to match the mod... unacceptable!
Welcome to auspicious ranks of The Senile. Leaving notes to ones self seem to be catching on!
You are in good company - ME!
Is that REALLY good company?
i like your CNC. lucky turd.
I can't remember.
Brilliant and feeble minded John! Like peanut butter and chocolate, they go good together.
@Talledega- Google 'Deepgroove 1'. Luck had nothing to do with it. It was cash, lots of cash. I'm still buying stuff for it.
So if I'm feeble minded John who is brilliant?
Chocolate goes with everything, i can't think of one thing that chocolate just does not go with Pizza, meat, fish, fruit, veg, sex, everything i tell ya!
And typing deepgroove into google is asking for trouble.
Best to turn ON safe search - after page 7 gets dicey if you don't. So I'm told.
i tried chocolate sauce on a sub sandwich one time. never again....
Mint makes everything afterwards taste horrible, except more mint.
OK... Taig DeepGroove 1 should get you less porn.
Chocolate and Starburst don't mix. The closest I ever got to blowing chunks on a road trip was caused by mixing the two.
@John - I see you found a way to put the troll EVERYWHERE. You are evil!
So do you really think you can still say you're good company?
Apologies if you've already been asked, but is that a homemade CNC? If so how much did it cost you to make?
Oops, sorry you two... got distracted again.
@Woody - It's not homemade. It was far cheaper and faster to buy this rig for me. The Taig is a really good setup for a mini-CNC. It can even cut stainless steel. With the control software and an extra stepper motor, it was $2015.
-I FINALLY got all these buggers cut.
-I polished the riser card clamp. You can see my gluing still sucks.
-Nostalgia bomb time! While cleaning out the garage, I found some game cartridges. -The HELL? I never had a game system...?
-OK... I'm still working out what to do with the CPX Pro pump Danger Den supplied me with. I need something to practice the building concepts on first...
-The DDC top design can help me here. It's put together the same way, and It can go towards the MNPCTech Design Comp #3. -Gotta give back to the community. They have been throwing a lot my way lately.
-I'm going with a 3/4" core this time. There will be fewer layers that way. Big thanks to Metric for mentioning how to increase the number of sides to a circle in SU. Like with the polygon tool, you can simply type in an number and 'S' to increase the resolution. Now I can spoof a true circle pretty well. (I feel stupid for not thinking of this on my own.)
-Side one. I set the origin point to one of the screw holes. I can flip the part and stay aligned that way.
-But first I had to get the holes to the other side of the block. Mill bits aren't very good for deep drilling. They plug up really easy. Until I finish the core of the top, the room will look like chaos.
-Kids: Remember to pick up your toys!
-This 3/8 rounded bit was bought for the res project. I thought I'd give it a test run on the intake channel. Right after I took this shot, the material jumped. I had to reset everything and slow the feedrate down 50%.
-I finished the night up by cutting the part out of the billet. Say hi to BananaMan again.
-Here's the finished core.
-Next up is the plate to screw the barbs into.
