    It's always neat to see a pro welder's work. Have you thought about welding a stainless steel reservoir instead of using stock WC gear? -It could be awesome.:D

    Absolutely love what you're doing with this. I'd kill to have your welding skills. It is a shame to sand them down.

    After that i made the mounting plate for the frame out of 3mm aluminium and bend it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then i drilled and countersunk the holes and mounted the plate on to the frame.

    [​IMG]

    After that i drilled and countersunk the holes inside the desk body and mounted the frame on the desk body.

    Very nice, that will lift 2-3 monitors easily?

    The controller is for both leg and monitor, nice clean unit.

    Nut rivets are great, I need to practice more at it on countersunk ones, can do flanged ones no problem but countersunk ones went in awful for me with a manual tool, looks like the air tool does it nicely. :D

    Make me one too , pleasee!
    this is just fantastic, i think that you should use a lot of coppar details into this build, bitspower has some awsome copper oldtime looky fittings

    Thanks mate and yes you got my custom welded reservoirs. :D

    Thanks Waynio now i know what the english word for those are.:D If you can get hold of a air tool use it mate it works like a charm.:D

    Thanks mate and i was thinking using copper details for this build because the colors im using are titanium grey and blue so copper will look very nice imo. :D I will look at the bitspower fittings for sure.
