    This button head screws are just temporary,before I tap the holes for countersink screws.


    Here is the reservoir bracket almost done.I have something in mind to cut in the acrylic :D I'm not planing any laser cutting, everything will be done by hand :dremel:

    So far so good:thumb:Stay tuned for more:dremel:

    But then,when I was filing and polishing disaster happened :wallbash:

    [​IMG]

    Back from point A

    [​IMG]

    This time I was more careful

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    This attempt was more successful :)

    [​IMG]

    I have to say,that this blue colour is really nice :thumb: Still many parts need sanding and painting.Here is some progress on that direction :dremel:

    Ok,what is this white peace of something.....no one? This is .999 pure silver :D And this will become silver kill coil :)

    Let's start

    Firs the tools,usual ones for my project

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The silver is very hard after the rolling mill,so need to become softer.For that reason one more tool is added

    [​IMG]

    Cutting

    [​IMG]

    Filing

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Even more filing

    [​IMG]

    Scraping

    [​IMG]

    One side ready,marking the other one

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Cutting

    [​IMG]

    More scrubbing

    [​IMG]

    Time for sanding.I will start with 600 up to 2500.Reason for that is,silver is very hard to polish.Especially the pure silver is almost mission impossible , always goes back to his original colour.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Sanding with 2500 sandpaper by hand

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Polishing

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Success :rock:

    [​IMG]

    And the final product :thumb:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    That is all for today lads. Hope you like my new silver coil. Stay tuned for more :dremel:
