Macro and modding go together hand in hand,...
what wheel is that you put on the drill press? looks like a shower cap attached to something lol!
Its a 6" sanding disc with a buffing cap thing. I got it at home depot
woooot very nice work.... as alwasy... well done buddy
Wow! I cant tell the "real" photo from the mirrored one! ..simply amazing!! Wich one is it, pray tell dear Sir!
Btw, how long did this take, and at what rpm was the drillpress running at?
LOL.. you look like a coalminer!! *singin to my self:* 'working in a coal mine going down down...' *exclaiming:* Gaaah!!! ...damn it man!! dont sneak up on me like that! Cant f-ing see you in the dark anymore ;P
...ehm.. about that singing.. though you had stopped reading (wich you should cause I rambling now) ;P
Aaaanyway... nice job as always Tribal!!
you kinda look like a kickboxer to me lol. i wouldn't want to get in a fight with you!
please tell me which is real and which is not...
No that is what I call shiny!
BOTH pictures are of the reflection of the aluminum GOTCHA! HA HA HA.
It took maybe 30 minutes total? I dont know. Did most of the polishing witha table grinder and then finished it off with the drill press. I think I had the press running at like 1500 - 2000 rpm i think. I was fast but not to fast.
This is what I have been doing the past few days. I did all this last night at work though. I was trying to figure out exactly what I wanted. This is it. When I go to the studio today,... this is what I will be doing. I'll be there all night.
Going to on vacation in exactly 4 days! 1 month of BLACKOUT, straight up! Updates almost everyday

1 month of blackout... looking forwards to this!
nice modd keep the pic's commming
Subscribed dude looking great. On another note just got your dual-res through and it's a nice job, looking forward to using it in my build
Sweet! I hope you like it! Let me know and send me pics!
Aye well the build might get a bit-tech project log so I'll let ya know
UPDATE! WHAHOO! I didnt get a load done but I still got a good amount of work done. I started by finishing the last two pieces of aluminum, they needed to be polished. That took a bit of time. I then drew out the design on those two last pieces. These two last pieces being the inner bracket shield thing. I spent a good amoutn of time doing this because some of my stuff was off a bit. I had to make sure everything was aligned. Anyways,... check it out.
Drilling took a bit to do because there were so many holes to drill! In the pic you see me drilling the hole holes. I didnt use this uni-bit for the entire hole. I step drilled from like 1/16" up to 3/8" using separate bits. So,... thats when I went out to get this uni-bit! i cant believe I am just getting this thing now! It's great! Expensive too. Like $36US!! But it downa great job though! Saved me a ton of time.
Look how evenly spaced! God I love it. So,... I went with this style instead of the inset style I was planning mainly because I wanted to maintain the look. This is what I did for the HDD rack so this is what Im doing for the PSU. Plus the inset would be more complicated and would take much more time. So yea.
Time to scroll saw. Here you see that I am using my PIECE of S@#$ scroll saw. Nothing fancy
The blade in the hole.
A close up so you can see how I roll,... you see how I try and not touch the tape. If I touch the tape a tiny bit thats ok. But I definitely do not want to cut into the tape. I will file all this away all of whats left of the shiny aluminum you see.
I flipped it over and this is what it looks like without tape.
I got most of that cutting done with one blade. I changed the blade only because I knew it was dull. It didnt break,... it was dull. You can see how the teeth are slanted upwards a bit.
Anyways,... I plan on going back after work tonight to do some more cutting. Till then
Vacation: 2 Days left.
wow. scroll saw.... amazing. nothign else to say. I think people will appreciate it more, if in you pics iyou showed it to size, like put a quarter next to it, to appreciate the small lines...

wow!!! you're crazy!!! i'm loving your mod!!! 8-/
