    Hi together,
    today I like to start with a small "in-between" project.

    The name of the project: [​IMG]"Lady Liberty"[​IMG].

    In the torch is a E14 bulb sockett. That will be unchanged.

    I've got a notion that she was hollow. If not I got a lot of things to do.


    The pics:

    My ideas for the back:
    - In the upper area a perforation for the circulation
    - The lower area (green) will be cut and mount with hinges out will be replaced with a plain Backplate.
    Maybe I mount some feet to rise the hole thing a little bit. Than I can make a input for the air. Of course with filter in front of it.

    She sure is, had the pleasure of seeing the mini one in Paris. A gift to the people of the USA for winning their independance if memory serves me correctly?

    :lol: Yes. It's the fact that it looks like a child-sized souvenir that amused me.

    UPDATE!

    Today I got the PSUs. (25,5 x 6,5 x9 cm)
    Fore only 3,99€ I take two. Is always useful to have cheap spare parts.
    [​IMG]

    I want to use only one Powercord for the PC and the torch.
    Therefore...
    [​IMG]

    An old connector is exact what I need.
    [​IMG]


    After the drawing...
    [​IMG]

    ... and a view minutes with the DREMEL...
    [​IMG]

    ...it fits like a glove.
    [​IMG]

    Here the inner-view:
    [​IMG]

    At this point: Thanks DREMEL for your assistance.

    And it goes on...

    To share the power I use this clamps
    [​IMG]

    Thin arrangement will be perfect.
    [​IMG]

    The flow:
    [​IMG]

    The switch will be mount on the back. For that I first mark the position...
    [​IMG]

    ... an drill the biggest possible hole. 13mm.
    [​IMG]

    After the drill I use a 90° countersink...
    [​IMG]

    ..and a Dremel with a 9904 Tungsten Carbide Cutter.
    I use the counterbore as an "optical guidance"
    [​IMG]

    Done :D
    [​IMG]

    UPDATE

    Next Step: "The cable channel"
    I think the pictures says enough.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    For a better visual appearance I use some self-adhesive felt.
    I also is some kind of protection for the cables.

    Just an accident. :wallbash:

    I think only to glue it will no be strong enough.
    Therefore I remove the bushing...
    [​IMG]

    ...and open up the channel a little.
    First with the Dremel...
    [​IMG]

    ...than with a 13mm drill.
    [​IMG]

    Why that? Its easy. I have here rest of a copper pipe that I will use as an reinforcement.
    [​IMG]

    First I cut the elbows...
    [​IMG]

    ...than I clean the edges.
    [​IMG]

    After a little bit of bending:
    [​IMG]

    The break in the upper arm with the pipe inside,
    [​IMG]

    the wrist...
    [​IMG]

    ...and the bottom of the torch.
    [​IMG]

    Tomorrow more.

    At least it's beginning to look even more like the real statue of liberty this way, aside from it having a steel (iron?) skeleton with copper skin :)

    Awesome! Fiberglass is awesome to work with. Itchy, but very forgiving.
