Paiting Guide With Air Brush
Adding in a cheap LCD (i think it's been done but meh)
Im looking for a Hard disk cooling guide...
just blow a fan at it...it s not that much of a heat generator...it gets really hot because the air is still around it...
or get some watercooled enclosures from pug...
*adding leds to buttons/switches
*personally would like to know the physics of cooling (it wouldn't be a guide but it would be nice!)
one for Zap I'm thinking:
combined power and hdd-activity LED - i'm imagining dull for power, with bright pulses for activity. (i thought about bi-colour, but i want to use a vandal-resist switch which i can't change the LED in)
think it will be possible, but i don't want to mess it up...
how's about it Zap?
i second this one. I need something along these lines for my next mod. I want to light a piece of plexi one color when power is one, but have it change with the activity to a different color, and then back to the power color when activity is over. huh, huh, you know you want to write that guide!
That can be done by adapting Bard's guide here:
Or my guide here:
i did see those both, but am not sure how to wire the circuit i want.
if i was to simply have both 'power LED' and HDD LED' connected to the same LED, I imagine I would blow it. so i guess i'm asking how much resistance i need to add to the inputs - do i need to add some to both?
I'd like to see a guide on how to make some homemade surround headphones, similar to Zap's. I like the idea of surround headphones, but the only ones I've seen are the Zalman RS6F's, but I've heard the frequency rating starting at 50Hz is bad. I'd also like a guide on how to make moterized parts on a PC using motors, servos, or whatever. Allelectronics.com has some cheap DC motors, but I don't know if they would be of any use.
[EDIT] Never mind, found the link in your project log. Missed it before. [/EDIT]
I would want someone to do a Guide for Dummies

here's one with a doorbell
Not exactly a car alarm remote, but it is wireless and you can change the switch if you don't like the doorbell look.
Painting a fan guide.
I'm looking for guides/howtos on plexi. Glueing, polishing, bending, cutting, drilling, eating.. I know there's alot of info on this out there in the threads, but I'm to lazy to find it all
i second, third, and fourth that. there, now someone HAS to do it
how about some descent photoshop tutorials ? i mean there are some on the web but i for one fdind them a bit difficult to follow!
Bending, cutting plexi is easy..
just with cutting plexi u have to be careful to keep it from vibrating or it cracks
To bend plexi u just heat in hoven or with hot air gun (or similar) then bend via hand (with gloves... der)
Just Take ur time with plexi and itll work well
grr... my weak search-fu makes me crazy...
trying to find something that shows opening up an in-case "fan grille" with a hole saw...
search returns anything with "hole" and/or "saw" in it...
a little help?
There is a dremel guide for fan holes here:
