    CNC precision never get's old. I like the contrast between the stainless steel and aluminium. BTW is there going to be another reservoir? Because I'm not sure the integrated one works on its side.

    Thanks guys! :rock:

    Haha! Nice one, man! :hehe:

    Shouldn't be any problems. All the manual said was not to run the pump/reservoir facing up...

    And looking at the design of the in/outlets to the reservoir itself confirms that.




    Time for a short update. Haven't had much time for my project with easter and all... :p

    I milled a I/O, expansion slot tray thingy today.

    It's not done, tho. Missing some tapped holes and a chamfer, but that's for another day.

    So, the test-mounting went perfect. I was slightly unsure if it would fit with the measures I got on the hardware, but it was fine. :)

    Mr3D, you are a ridiculous man. And I think I love you.

    I venture in to this part of the forum only occasionally and today I'm very glad I did. This case is the nuts, the whole nuts and nothing but the nuts.

    Nah man, just keep the post.

    I don't know if you read my answer too.(I quoted myself, read it below) Sure, I was slightly irritated you telling me my calculation was wrong, but it is in-fact, correct.(maybe not to the exact numbers, but as a estimation, it is.) I told you how I calculated and gave real facts of the motor-sizes of that machine. So I can back my arguments with a source.(If you want a link to the machine spec, just tell me)

    What I want to know tho, is your calculation. I don't really believe your arguments, so if you back them with a source that would be great. I mean, the power estimations you gave me of aluminum-recycling, the price would be higher due to high electrical/fuel bills.

    Thanks guys, love all the positive comments! :D

    Yeah, I think it's going to be great! :D

    That would be seriously awesome, indeed! But that's for the next project... :p

    But guys... A milled 140mm fan-blade with a 18000RPM RC motor... Yeah, I wouldn't want to be near that beast... :wallbash:

    And your comment is also, the nuts! :lol:

    Thanks man!
