    Hi everyone :)

    So there will be a small update later this week, and here is an explanation why it´s taking forever to get somwere with this project.

    First, I have a girlfriend and she wants to spend time with me :jawdrop::thumb: but now she is sick so I have to take care of the dog :eyebrow:.
    Anyway biggest problem has bean that I broke my first powersuply and I had a feeling that my new one would´t fit in the little circle, it did take some time to by a new one but now I have and offcource its to big so I will have to redo the powersupply circle to a little bigger one, and that takes me to the next problem. When I make a bigger powersupply it doesn't fit the front plate, so I will probably have to redo it :wallbash: and that takes me to a little design period with is almost done.
    So there you have it, pictures will come later this week, and I just wanted to say thanks to everyone, so thanks :D


    Macros_the_Black - Thanks mate :D

    Real McCoy - don't worry update will come soon :thumb:

    JAxen - Thanks mate, Scrollsaw is bought at Clasohlson ( Classe rockar fett vettu :D , finns även liknande på Jula till samma pris typ ;) )

    Yemerich - Thanks, thanks and thanks once again :thumb:

    OMG WTF AN UPDATE :eeek:

    Yep, yep, yep
    finally I have done some more work so I can deliver an small update.

    And to start with here is the big probem at the moment.
    As you can see this is the front panel of my case and as I have told you all before I have changed my PSU and it has a bigger pcb.
    The small Circle in the middle is the original size I was supposed to use, the blue markings is the smallest I can use and the red marking is the size I want to use.
    If I use ether one of the new sizes it will bee to big, so what I have to decide is if I´m going to keep this front or make a new one.
    If anyone have any suggestions of waht to do you are welcome to put them here.

    ...now this is really making me nervous that I´m going to destroy this one as well.

    After I had broken up the PSU I had to cut something, so I started to make a HDD case.
    This is just the beginning :cooldude: and because the project is called Circlebutterfly I thought, why not do a circle with a butterfly :geek:

    Circle...

    ...with butterfly cuttings :)

    Sorry for the yellowish pictures, but it´s not so good lightning and if I use the flash most off the time there just is a big white blurry thing in the image.

    And as usually I'm off to bed.

    God night

    This is an awesome idea. Looking fantastic.

    Also I have found those grinding stones to be useless for alu also. I have found teh sanding drumms to work the best.

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    As you can see I haven't done anything in a very, very long time with this mod and the biggest reason is I didn't read this article more than ones.

    http://www.bit-tech.net/modding/2007/03/23/planning_your_case_mod/1

    So for anyone new reading this log, red the article and then read it again plan yore mod and read the article again.

    Anyhow, I will continue the mod when I have planed everything so it will work as I have planed in my mind, but it will probably take some time to get there, and as I think all modders I´m also thinking of my next (or simultaneous) project at the same time.

    HeXen: The table is an old table I found at an old mans house and it was abut to get thrown out so I took it and have it in my workshop. I will take a picture on it when I go there next time if I remember.


    Thanks again for the nice comments it makes all the different to me and makes me want to finish up and not just start a new project and ditch this one, thanks.
