    to brush the aluminum, I need a sanding block + implementation



    shear + 320 sandpaper

    Welcome to Bittech and great start on your mod. The logo turned out really nice. I can't wait to see how your mod will turn out.

    I bought 2 spruce afford 20x20x2000 (mm). This had to be cut to length, I use my jigsaw with a selfmade SAW TABLE (+ ROLL TABLE)
    [​IMG]



    material: hinges, wood usw...
    [​IMG]



    I screwed the hinges to the board (must be very accurate)
    [​IMG]



    the roll table
    [​IMG]



    ready :) :D
    [​IMG]



    Now I had to customize the jigsaw
    [​IMG]



    fits!, almost 4 holes in the sleigh, i attached the jigsaw with the table
    [​IMG]



    cut to length,
    [​IMG]



    finished, works perfectly:)
    [​IMG]




    ok, it is very sick :D
    but it works!
    (my circular saw is broken :( )

    Computers and fire is cool, but I'm a bit worried of wood and fire.. :D

    Good work there, but seriously I'll have my doubts about the fire until I see you pull it off without burning your house down :)

    @ the_beast: yes !!!! fire :D

    @ jipa: thanks, i hope i dont look like him: http://boba.files.wordpress.com/2008/09/burning_man.jpg



    I think I will use "bio-ethanol", lamp oil is a "dirty" solution (soot development)



    My experiences:
    FUEL PASTE:
    - Not realy for inside using
    - Smells...
    - Ugly "flare"

    + Flexible
    + Cheap
    + Can be ignited from the cup dirket


    Lamp Oil:
    - Smells
    - Smokes
    - soot...
    - Insecure

    + Cheap
    + Long burns
    + Everybody knows:) fondue, etc. ..
    + nice flame



    therefore I will use bioethanol:
    Bio Ethanol:
    + Best visual flare
    + Safe
    + No smell
    + No soot
    + Flame burns at the surface, you can designed the "fire" as you want

    - 1L burns approximately 3 hours

    i fight against the flu, the last 2 weeks!

    atm i testing: the flame, the quantity, and heat


    now i use ethanol, so I try a bit around!
    in my "old" oil lamp ethanol dont burn!
    so I can forget this variant!
    [​IMG]

    ethanol in a stainless steel cup!
    [​IMG]


    1, 2, 3, .... FIRE !!!!!!
    [​IMG]

    I think it is a very nice flame, burns great, does not stink, but the heat makes me :eyebrow:!
    The cup is in the height of the flame, warm (NOT HOT), in the lower range (under the flare line) cold!


    Now I will have a "problem" with my case design!
    hmmmm..... I will build me a stainless steel container ;) :D
