    I think there is enough space for an ATX ( at least in mine......I've done a check before wash dishes :hehe:)

    How will you join all pieces togheter ?

    I found a double sinks for 20€ in a used market :naughty:
    I am not sure to follow the mokey in my head adding parts for a case mod(read junk) considering my never-ending to do list and the spring getting closer (= garden jobs :worried::worried:)

    Thanks, Def! :D
    @Dot_Kappa - For the pvc bits: PVC plumbing glue. :p To connect the stainless and pvc: Liquid Nail construction adhesive. It should work. I swear it's based on dry chewing gum.

    Sorry for the lack of update, everyone. There were a lot of storms and cold lately, and the last session at the mill went odd. Like, I may need a new motor controller soon odd. :worried:

    Nothing askew, but randomly diving the bit into the material an extra 1/4 inch is... potentially destructive.
    Don't poke me with the soft cushions over it.

    :worried: Spring happened. I had a ton of repairs I put off last year because it was 100-110 degrees Fahrenheit, and then Winter made me sleep all day.
    Making a bunch of little cuts on metal probably isn't worth posting too.

    I dug a few picks from the camera. Most of it was cleaning and marking a 2nd sink to find it was not the same shape.
    [​IMG]
    -I cut a bunch of sections and milled one side of each flat. these are for the curves.
    [​IMG]
    -This is the angle jig to bevel the second side of each section. On the very first cut, the mill freaked out and plunged about .2" instead of .032", so it threw the part. I've only done a bunch of cut cleanup and other not photo worthy stuff since.
    Sorry, Dot.

    I've been busy with other stuff again. It's that season.
    [​IMG]
    -I decided after using the mill for a bunch of van parts that it was fine. My clamping was likely inadequate.
    [​IMG]
    -I fused these together with plexi solvent, only to find I could break them apart easily. I had to resort to goopy pvc glue.
    [​IMG]
    -The results aren't very accurate, or pretty, or straight.
    [​IMG]
    -My setup for cutting the power switch hole. The wooden prop is glued in place.
    [​IMG]
    -Oh, wow did I miss that one. I really shouldn't have tried to mark the center while it was in the clamp. I guess I need to cut up another batch of angles and do it again. This section was glued together pretty crooked anyway.
    [​IMG]
    -There might be a slight delay while I use the leftover material to form a curved sanding block. I'm using up some suuuuper runny pre-mix plaster that I've been suffering with lately, and it's taking forever to set up.

    -Next mission: Clean this room. I flung pvc caterpillars everywhere.
    [​IMG]
    -I cut up and glued another curve section, and made these cuts for the switch stuff.
    [​IMG]
    -Totally covered in purple snot. :thumb: I had to sand the primer out of the tube hole for the button to fit again.
    [​IMG]
    -Yep still really rough. I'll have a hell of a time getting this neat and smooth. I added some glue in the low spots and it was full of bubbles after sanding. :(
    [​IMG]
    -Another switch shot.
    [​IMG]
    -I knocked out the junction point for the fan grills.
    [​IMG]
    -I have no clue how I got these together without glue in the gap. Thank God though. That would be a really nasty spot to smooth out.
    [​IMG]
    -Next problem: The gloppy glue and tolerance chain shenanigans made getting these accurate impossible. I will need to add another section and mill it to the dimensions I need... and at 90 degrees. I should probably get back to cutting metal parts so I can figure out what those dimensions are first.

    Stupid "tropical storm" turned out to be a full blown hurricane. Expect delays.
