    :(
    Negative Nancy.:lol:

    Also, The square bit is just to seat a blob of plexi with a port in it. I'm trying to get your imagination working. You could make a round plexi plug for multiple ports so you could torque down one barb while holding the other.

    I got my thread poking stick out, and it's aimed at you.:lol:

    Yell what you like I can't hear you lol

    Still waiting for some materials I thought I'd get on with cutting some parts I'll need later, so these are 8mm thick and quite narrow so not easy to fix down but anyway.

    Starts off with the programme drawn and loaded

    [​IMG]

    Nice flat plate that happens to be almost too small

    [​IMG]

    First I cut the inner part left me with a useable bit for something else

    [​IMG]

    Second cut leaves me with the shape I wanted :)

    [​IMG]

    Two of these perfect.

    It's not the machine that's slow - that thing is super-charged - it's just that... well, Tel is getting on a bit, y'know. Not as spritely as he used to be, grumpier by the day, and running out of Just for Men (which probably explains the grumpiness). :p :lol:

    On top of that, we're a week into this log and a single f***ing Troll or cat anywhere to be seen in any of the pics! What's the score, T?

    Right as I said I redesigned the back after looking at it I realised the door was a mistake and it would be better if the whole back was removable, so I draw out the IO plate and the GPU holes to be cut out of the back.

    I dunno if its just your photography but it seems that the stock isnt clamped down enough.

    Every aspect seems to have some sort of alignment issue,the curves dont seem regular and the straight sections dont seem to be.....well......straight......

    It is probably your phone but its driving me mad.....:D

    I think you may need to go to spec savers :thumb:

    Seriously though every piece is test fitted and all lines up as it should, I suppose you need to know what goes where to understand that though.

    Might be because I live on the side of a mountain that it looks on a tilt to you lol

    Might also be the Acid I had this morning.........

    Its almost certainly your camera,I went back and looked at 'known' shapes,ie your monitor. The lens you have is fish-eying according to your first pic.

    Tbh there is a slight inconsistency with those two bone shaped pieces but it's no biggie as they won't be seen once fitted in.

    Now there's very little I can get on with now apart from argue the toss over the aluminium that hasn't arrived, he's not keen on replacing it ffs .

    So B Neg why didn't you do a build log on your new toy?

    BTW I have a set of stainless steel V wheels for one of them.
