    :lol: Thanks. I get that from people sometimes.

    Progress-wise: I ordered some electronic components, and even smaller mill bits. I have an ungodly-loud grinding session penciled in too. (That didn't read right to me...) I'm trying to figure out how to mark stainless. It's nearly impossible to scratch, and sharpie disappears if you get it too hot.

    :eyebrow: I see you random tag guy. Subtle. :D

    You're now the proud owner of a brass purple nurple! This case rules Cheaps, loving all the bits and pieces getting put together.

    Oh, great.
    Image links are broken due to the migration, and PUTObucket just ransomed my account. I really don't want to give money to jackasses that would pull that kind of stunt. They were a royal *sspain from the beginning. The site would often crash from the sheer number of ads.
    Ideas? I'm not sure what kind of limitations BT albums have now. I know they only allowed about 500 images total per account.

    Ow. Two new forum platforms and a new server host in one day. The de-formatting in text... Thanks guys, but I think I'm set now.
    kylevdm, our gracious fearless leader over at TheModZoo, and head of the Munkey Party, has offered me a place to host my pics. (You might have noticed project logs all over going black thanks to Photobucket, who decided to take everyone's work hostage unless they pay for their premium package.) For the time being I've set up my sleeping bag between his couch and the record cabinet. I'll be slowly rebuilding my logs, but for the time being. I need to get something up, right?

    -IT WORKED..*cough* I mean, Here's one of those classy ghetto clamping jobs I'm famous for. I have a piston rod slipped over the vice screw, and it's wedged with a block of wood.


    [​IMG]
    -Needless to say, it slipped a little in the mill, but a little filling and filing will fix that. Now I need to make a pcb for this. -oooh. ow.
    [​IMG]
    -One more odd thing going on the case: This was once a sink drain. Here I'm epoxying the gaps between flat-brass-thing and round-tank-thing.

    -In preparation for making a pcb, I've been shopping and surfin'. I've picked up a bunch of electronic components, some blank pcb board, and these microscopic buggers. I'm not sure how I'm going to zero something in the mill I can't see. I'd love to know how they cut flutes into a sewing needle.

    -On a side note: I've finally found some accent material for my next project. (Yeah, like I'm going to get time to finish THIS project.) I picked this up from acrilex.com, and it wasn't cheap. Hey, I'd much rather spend my cash on this than spend $400 to have someone host a lousy 130 megs of pictures.

    -This stuff opens up a lot of possibilities. It reacts to light and background colors very differently. Most standard plexi colors dominate whatever you put it over.

    Unfortunately, I'm back on the clock. -New house with many problems. Unfortunately, I have project log repair to do as well.


    Oh, and I gotta find my sponsor banners somewhere in 3600 pictures. Thanks for looking.
    Edit: hmm. Maybe just copy-paste? Yes:

    Thanks! I just went through the entire log rebuilding links, and noticed you were here from the beginning, replying religiously.

    Awesome :) yeah man I love modding. Especially creative modding using something that was never designed for its purpose. Or forcing things to take on a new purpose.. Always fascinated me :)

    I wish I could just continue modding and building PCs with impunity but sadly a one bed flat (even though it's a bloody big one bed flat) only has so much room.
