    Alien door handles?:eyebrow: It'd certainly give anyone pause on opening that particular door.

    I figured you be looking for a silver 3D printed water block instead.

    Check the site and you will understand:p. They are printing in silver too. Can you say, "Killcoil-spin-res insert"?

    I'm curious to see how much a freaky organic 3x120 fanguard would cost. We could come up with some crazy bolt-on theme kits with this tech. Hey Nexxo! Want a gothic rose vine fanguard?

    Thanks Dagored!

    ----------------

    For men of consequence a mound should be raised to their memory, and for all other warriors who had been distinguished for manhood a standing stone, a custom that remained long after Odin's time.
    —The Ynglinga saga


    Inscriped with runic script, runestones are monuments erected to mark the death of a warrior or great king. Most were erected between 950-1,100 CE with over 3,000 runestones found scattered across Scandinavia. The highest concentration can be found in Sweden but the Norsemen seeded runestones wherever they went. From the Black Sea to the Isle of Man, the vikings literally made their mark on history.
    In recent times, discovery of runestones and runic inscriptions in North America have caused laymen and scholars alike to debate whether the Vikings discovered America before Christopher Columbus.

    ----------

    Picking up where we left off, so the block I showed last time around developed some funky corrosion that I suspect is the pickle that got in between the layers. Not sure if that means that the join wasn't 100% but why chance it, eh?
    [​IMG]

    To the mod-cave….
    [​IMG]

    This time instead of two sides bolted down, let's try all four.
    [​IMG]

    Bolted down and ready for some night soldering. The more observant may notices that this time the block is one layer thicker (obSpinalTap: this one is one louder). The white paint on the corners is paper correction fluid or White-out. It acts as a solder resist so the solder doesn't flow into the screw holes.
    [​IMG]

    Warming the block up on a turntable fire brick mounted firebrick.
    [​IMG]

    More heat
    [​IMG]

    Getting there
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Solder goes in. I'm using an easy flow silver solder this time.

    Solder was applied inside and out of the block.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    You can see the silver solder wicking nicely up the side of the block.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The solder (65% silver) flows at 1325F (718C). I'm guessing from color that I may have spiked over that.
    [​IMG]

    The color slowly fading.
    [​IMG]

    Once cooled, drilling with a 11.8mm bit.
    [​IMG]

    Then cutting the threads with a G1/4" tap. With the tap in the drill press chuck, I release the head and rest the tap on the brass.
    [​IMG]
    Using a pipe wrench, I turn the drill chuck by hand.
    [​IMG]

    Easy threads. At this point, imagine if you will :), a lot more soldering in my shed during a torrential rain storm so no camera and no pics.
    [​IMG]

    But through the magic of technology, NB block V3. Can you see the layers?
    [​IMG]

    Next up sand blasting, hopefully

    Thanks Waynio! The next block will be the one to watch :)

    Trust me, it'll look good.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. There are some seriously amazing 3d artists out there. Just ordered the girlfriend a sake set for christmas. Left me wondering what it'd take to 3d print a reservoir :naughty:

    Thank you matiss!

    Thanks Davem88. Not sure I have a lock on money or imagination, its taken on a life of its own at some point. I'm just along for the ride ;)

    Thanks! Maybe in the PSU for the stained glass. :worried:

    Looks like they murdered Santa and wrapped him in a big grey piece of cloth!

    Thank God I stopped believing in Santa a couple of years ago, or I would have been in tears! :lol:
