    So I got a bunch of crap laying around the apartment, what to do with it?

    [​IMG] (clicky for full size)


    Just a general load of crap, nothing too exciting here, move along.

    Bit of fiddling around, just for giggles, nothing too exciting eh?

    More parts on the way, and more hacking on the way, maybe not so much on the way of explanations for now ;)

    Generous use of the word, "crap"? -I'm in.
    It should be fun to see what you come up with.

    Small update, been wrapped up with other stuff, but I got the power supply mounted, and PID thermostat cutout made (and temporarily installed).

    (now with bigger thumbnails)
    [​IMG]

    Aquabay and thermostat are both just sitting in there, pay no mind to if they arent straight



    [​IMG]
    Closeup of the switches due to be installed soon. However, I forgot to get the pretty trim piece nuts for them so I may actually be holding off on final installation.



    [​IMG]
    Said pretty trim piece nuts installed on another previous project of mine. Along with some Apem LED indicators.

    Teaser image, no further explanation for now ;)

    Switch holes drilled, just waiting on the dress nuts to tidy everything up. I really like how the metal flat-paddle switch actuators look though. Even though they are small switches, it looks/feels more robust then a small 'bat' style one would. Keen eyes will see the marks for indicators above the switches waiting to be drilled once I settle on indicators.

    Next, I need to get off my butt and finish up my autocad work so I can move onto the next step.

    An attitude that does you no credit as a first post. If you want to stay here then I suggest you think carefully about how critical you are of others' work.

    Normally I would agree but he is quoting the author verbatim. :read: (I've always wanted to use that emoticon.) Still...not a quality first post.

    Got in the dress nuts for the small switches, the big one will get its own also when I get around to a mouser order.

    [​IMG]
    K type thermocouple and IEC power connector holes made.

    All thats left on the back is holes for the water lines, and a circuit breaker for protection.

    Also, my RGB backlight LCD showed up, but no pictures since the stock photo of it is more exciting then of an LCD not doing anything.

    More crap in the mail today! Got some lasercutting done by Pololu on some 1/8" smoke plexiglass. Left the paper on for most the shots, and quite a few of the parts will need to be bent still. That will be done this weekend.


    [​IMG]
    Aquabay rear mount fill port bracket

    [​IMG]
    Mounts up like so.


    [​IMG]
    Pump vibration isolation mount.


    [​IMG]
    Mounted up

    [​IMG]
    Back side to show hole for inlet. Yes, the tubing will have to be done up before the bracket is mounted.

    [​IMG]
    There will be a base piece, pictured here, that will have either 1/4" or 1/2" of soft neoprene foam that provides better vibration isolation then the stiff rubber mounts.

    [​IMG]
    Water block mount, 2 will be used, one front, one back, to get rid of any flexing.

    [​IMG]
    Nevermind the glare, just showing the nice alignment

    [​IMG]
    The copper base fits nicely too, protrudes enough to prevent any problems.

    [​IMG]

    LCD smoke tint window, and LCD template to make it extra easy to lay out.

    [​IMG]

    Template pictured over top of the LCD. The hole alignment is off, but not as bad as it looks in the picture due to perspective. Guess the datasheet on adafruit was off a touch. If only I knew where my dial calipers went off to.

    Thats it for now, more jigsawing, heating, bending and fitting up this weekend.
