Very nice concept and practicle to.
Precise neat work as usual.
Those pistons remind me of this designer table I once saw that uses the same mechanism:
It looks pretty cool!! I can't wait for the next update
You got the skills!
Would love to do welding as well.. TIG and me = not good friends
looking good mate wish i worked some where like you
Thanks mate and these columns are used for may things.
Thanks mate and when i started welding a long time ago TIG and me were not friends either.
*Desk body almost complete* "that's good for one day."
Most definitely is Paslis is exceptionally pro .
What are you gonna do whit the old desk?
But seriously dude, you're almost too fast
Nothing wrong with a good days work.
I'm going to sell it.I cant keep all my mods in my house before you know it my wife is putting me up for sale.
Thanks mate but there is so much to do.I think this build is gonna take me 8 months to finish.
I loved project flipmode and no doubt this will be much more awesome. Your metal working skills are amazing and I can't wait to see what you have in store for us .
Thanks for your kind words mate.
true.. will you please send me a pm when or whit the mods you´re going to sell...
Are you worried at all about one of the lifting mechanisms failing? It seems if you had a single support and one failed it would sink to the ground but if one failed and the other didn't while one powered up it might do some damage to your desk. Otherwise very cool.
No im not worried because its the same as you say maby your cars engine will stop one day.
Maby it happens and maby not.So no im not worried at all.
Update 2. 28-01-12
Today it was time to work on the desk again.The plan was to finsh welding the desk but i made the covers for the columns first.
Here's a drawning of the covers im gonna make.
Lets do some work.This time im making the pieces by hand.
I am using 3mm aluminium for the covers.First i made the angled pieces.
Then i made the rest of the pieces i need.
Time to put the pieces together and spotweld them.
Then i made the last pieces to mount the covers on the desk.
The last pieces spotwelded inside the covers.
Now its time to weld the covers.
Then some sanding.
The covers are done and this is the way i mount the covers on the desk.
This was it for today.
Thats some nice welding there! Damn!!!
Loving the metal work. Just to get a scale i am going to guess 142x35 + the front tray 30mm ?
