    Thanks guys and yes I just love that machine. When I came up with the name for this case I also remembered an image from school. Darwin and his evulotion theory, combined with the picture from a monkey that starts to walk upright and finishes with a man. Now it is possible to pick an image from the internet and engrave it into some plexi with the mill. It has to be something that fits into to theme and looks of the case, so I used the same color scheme as with the fanholders. Orange, black and white.

    Haha, thats awesome man :D

    Btw, your HDD box is really cool and unique, I love how the RC suspension removes all the vibrations. Looks good and probably works good as well.

    I was thinking about your hdd box, I don't know how much you've paid for the RC suspension, but here in Italy the lowest price is 14.00 euros each one...
    Too much for me :-(

    Those rc shocks cost me 28 euro, but I think they are worth every euro.


    I finished almost all the hoseclamps now.

    I don't know whether you remember the thing I made for the pump, the acrylic housing. I needed to dress it up a bit.

    [​IMG]

    It's not finished yet, still need to cut away some of the ribs for the pumpoutlet. Will have to wait for the glue to harden first.

    [​IMG]

    At first I wanted only to glue on those black ribs. Made the transparant acrylic parts just to keep everything in place while glueing it onto the housing, but I like those transparant parts so much that I will leave them on.

    Those hose clamps just look fantastic, and so does the pump shroud.

    Clean and sexy, trust in me!
    Now I need to work more on my cnc skill, what software do you use for the CAM?
    Now I'm using ArtCam, it's easy and the import function works good, any suggestion?

    Darn Franklin, you're really taking this to the next level!

    I just love the shot with the mobo and your hose clamps.

    Congrats on the new toy too, you're putting it to good use here :hehe:

    Keep it up.
