    The new frame :D

    Well all :)

    Now the project has come to life again :D
    Today as I lay in bed sulking that my project was broken and I had no set, so I decided to try and revive the broken frame.
    Unfortunately it was impossible to cook for a piece of the frame had apparently broken :(
    So I thought I do not care about it and wind up the project, but then like a bolt from the blue struck down in the head why not make the inner part of the acrylic I've actually pretty much pieces of various sizes.
    So I set out to start measuring and cutting, and here are pictures how everything has gone for me :D

    This is when I saw the plexiet:

    [​IMG]

    Now I have sawn clear and should start making them round the edges of acrylic:

    [​IMG]

    Here is the first piece of acrylic bent to the shape it should take (Back Page):

    [​IMG]

    Now I have bent two pieces together and check how the fit is:

    Without the framework for:

    [​IMG]

    I will put acrylic rods on 1x1cm around everything that I should be able to get it stronger and to the sides will sit down with the other aluminum frame:)
    I hope that I will make a nice frame of acrylic that will fit into the second part:) then everything must be filled and painted Otherwise it will be ugly stretch where I should splice them together and screw heads will be visible :(

    This was all from me right now but more updates will likely tomorrow :D

    Project: Dipp changes NAME to Reboot

    Hi all :lol:

    Now start everything over again :naughty: , and I have been absent on holiday, but now I'm at home and at work.

    I know that after my wonderful vacation that I have regained strength and energy to take hold of my case again after my great tragedy.

    and I have with my last ragged case learned an incredible lot of things that I can get better at this time instead.
    I hope you will follow this project and give me the same kind comments earlier.

    But here's my work that I have done the last two days, and I feel somehow that I have done this here so it will not be lots of pictures of disassembled picking chassis or so ago when I would take a befor and after picture it was of course the camera battery out when I would take the befor picture.

    But here's those pictures I have taken in all cases:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Im going to cut out where the paint is and i will sand it down for the glueing, and then i will all most be where i was befor :rock:

    Over and out!

    Update time!

    Hello everyone! :p

    Today has been a productive day and will get more work done today.
    First i went out shopping:
    [​IMG]

    What I have been successful to do is to cut out that last little piece that was out of the Business Case that I could get a nice back with lots of holes without having to drill them all.

    After that my second case I had was over driving so had of course now have access to lots of mesh to the new Case.

    And then I thought that I could cut out as an amplifier of the mesh so it will not be as hard to drill through the first cohesive glue then through the aluminum.
    So I have made so that all the holes aligned so that it is just to get the glue out halls.

    To keep them in place, I had pinned them so that they can not move.

    Here are some pictures of it all:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    the last photo shows how bad i did glue, becus its evry where :grr:

    I will also be out on 1 hour and heat the glue when it says on the box to 200 degrees will make the glue 30 times as strong :dremel:
