I vaguely remember there's an A10 in it. I'm not here for the hardware parades.
It's in your sponsors sig...
Don't die of shock. I have a 2nd update for the month. It's kinda handy when the temperature drops below the working temperature of pvc glue. I got time off thanks to a broken water main on the current vacancy and a cold snap.
-Have a commemorative photo celebrating the half-cleaning of the garage workbench. I know. It amazed me too.
-I was also filing on that bit of lawnmower engine block. I cut a tab for one end, and drilled screw holes in the other.
-Now I just need a hole. I added some plexi rod to the top of the fanguard where there was a gap.
-Perfect! Now I can just slide the guts in, and plug in the case components.
-Holy cow! look at all that wasted space.
-Oh, dear... That's some nasty pressure cracking. Maybe 4 O-rings was too many. It's only stressed on the decorative layer, though.
-I still had some liquid nail, so I used that for the access panel mount. The delays haven't been because of a lack of free glue. -No, really!
-I can shape the finned part now. I dug the bench sander out and flattened the sawed bits.
-I filed out the bolt areas and other stuff that filled the fins in.
-Epoxying this was tricky. To keep it in place I masked off the front, applied the epoxy, and while holding it in place hot glued the front. After that cooled I could let go and let it set overnight.
-What's next? I dunno. here's half of an old frying pan though.
Thanks again to my sponsors:
Hey! It is in the sponsor pics!
Oh, and here's one excuse for not getting much done last year.
An excuse. But an acceptable excuse.
You are the maddest modder! I am your admirer.
The almighty frying pan, now this mod is getting exciting.
@Dr. Coin - I have TWO pans.
You're the man with a plan for the pan. Is that what you're saying, mate?
No he's say he's the man with pans. Plans do not factor into this.
The plan is to destroy their ability to be used as junk containers. This household has a horrible tendency to fill any object that can hold stuff.
-Of course, there's other problems too. We inherited two NEW vacuum cleaners this month, bringing the total up to 9, (that I know of. )
HAHA! RAIN! And all my work is outdoors.
-Worked on some clearance issues earlier.
-I cut the frying pan down slowly until it fit. These things are really soft and bendy.
-Pan #3 appears. I've been told this one is older than me. It's almost as lumpy, too.
-I capped the end of the...heatsink-y thing with scraps from the meat grinder part. Extra glue was added into the bolt holes and held in shape with electrical tape.
-I made a spot for a bathroom faucet spout. This is what they look like without the fancy shell.
Here's the current state of chaos. I have a 3rd sink spout, a big brass sink drain, some towel rod, various bushings, a gun scope mount, shower spout pipe, and a 5 1/4" floppy drive frame to break up the plumbing monotony.
Thanks again to my sponsors:
funny hoard of plumbing parts...so you're "wombling" in metal skips when the sky is murky ?
Nope. It all came out of my scrap bin. I've had to replace a ton of damaged sinks and stuff. Bill's Exodus build up the page has the chain drive from an old Xerox machine I sent him
great repurposing for that xerox chain drive, BTW, I saw it in action in the video... Exodus is absolutely awesome, I love that piston and chain mechanism , remembers me that crazy mod Streamliner from AIO...
Yep. My first thought when they said they wanted a steam engine was that.
So I've been away from the BT mod log for a spell, so I saw an update to this I thought I'd check it out, ...and now I've read the whole thread. Love the metally gubbins and the varied sources of the aforementioned gubbins.
EDIT: The Xerox chain drive repurposing is probably the best use of a Xerox in a long while.
It was getting a little messy looking because I was trying to add stuff from everything. I since dialed that back. The top is still feeling cluttered to me.
