    Hi everybody,

    It's been a long time, but in this wired period I have less work, and more time, but have two diabolic little Boyz now!

    For those who know me, i did 4 scratch builds some years ago (without prétension).

    I'm back with my last build i done with metals scraps but this time, I will do it with new materials (and also recycling steel/aluminium scraps).

    Next post in this thread will show (again) my old scratch (done in 2015) to remember it to you and then tomorrow, the work will begin.

    My philosophy is not to do a clean Cnc with RGB, complicate watercooled loop and milimetred build, but try to give a soul with handmade craft to a common piece "of furniture", a basic computer, try to let it noble, esthetic and have a nice final render... And I allways keep in mind that I should be able to uprgrade hardware easily at any moment.

    And should put every part/component to its own place.


    My motto: do the simplest, the best with the less and efficently. In fact, I assume, I'm just LAZY! :idea:

    So I hope you will be interested in.

    See you & let's go

    So i bought new steel plate to remake it better and more clean for eyes.

    But i don't know if i will treat the metal like old shotgun (hematite), rust it, or just grease it.. I will see that later.

    I'll keep the hardware plate like a mountig plate (core tray). So I'll have to cut it.

    Need to do a new bracket for GPU and watercooling tank.

    Then,i'll will make some holes to install screws glue it with epoxy to the future external rear plate.

    It's a 2mm.

    It's quite easy to bend.

    A trick to bend it easier: cut surfacing with a cutter or a saw above less 0.5mm along your line to bend. Like that, the bend will follow your cutting. But this trick will olso weakened the aluminium structure. So you have to try and choose your startegy ;)

    Pre cutting will give more angle and without will be more smooth.


    An exemple on my old mod GPU SHELL

    You need a 'work board', something you can abuse and protect your house with. I put together a wood trash can for that purpose.

    When I was the owner of an Alfa Romeo GTV 916 :rollingeyes:, a beauty that always had a problem I once had to fix the oil sump.
    We fixed it with Pattex Power Epoxy Liquid Steel or Acciaio Liquido in Italy, it's really strong so strong you can even drill it like you would on metal.
    Although I'm not really sure if you can get it in France.

    I will use a chimical product to dye steel in black; that called hématite (used for shotgun barrels among others)
