    I'm late! Ahhh! I think. Yeah I'm a day late. It's because I didn't get much done two days ago when I was in the studio. So I just combined two days ago this yesterdays work. Here it is!

    Mar-10-2008

    Making some aluminum washer like covers to cover up the ugliness of the side skirt.

    Like so,...
    [​IMG]

    Sanded a bevel all the way around. Going to round these little things.
    [​IMG]

    Rounded some,...
    [​IMG]

    Ass you can see I bent the one side of the little cover things to better hug the sides skirt things. I will clean this shpae up later.
    [​IMG]

    320 sanding,... ready for buffing.
    [​IMG]

    Done. As you can see I ended up rounding both sides. What I was going to do turned out to be ugly. So I rounded both sides. Looks good though!
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Now,... CHANGE OF PLAN!!! Originally I was going to make a wire harness like bracket but I changed my mind. This is what I'm going to do.
    [​IMG]

    Got to love how like these two things are. The shape. good job Tribal:) *pats self on back*
    [​IMG]

    Rounded. Lovely.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Look at that! I think I will get into jewerly! I'm going to make a tribaloverkill friendship bracelets! Who wants one! LOL.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Some change. Bet you dont even remember what was here:)
    [​IMG]

    BAM. This is cool. This is the aluminum top piece. Only the area of the holes is polished. Everything else is dusted:) Cool ehhh?!?
    [​IMG]

    Acrylic on top. Very cool looking.
    [​IMG]

    Bands on.
    [​IMG]

    Sweet.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    This is what I'm doing with the wires. Hot! Going to be like this on both sides.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    This is going to be by far the coolest reservoir EVER made. Seriously. I am loving this.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Going to sleep and then try and go back ASAP! This res is like just about,... 90% complete!

    You should make something non-cylindrical. I bet it would be wild.

    I'm not real sure that is legal in most of the states in the US. I think they have laws against this much art!:thumb:

    Small update! Would of been bigger but I broke QHS's sFX bottom! LOL. check it out,... OH, HI! It's been a while:)

    Apr-28-2008

    Making some devices for wire management:) Using the drillpress as a mill. Worked ok but the was alot of chatter because the crossslide vise has a lot of play. It tooka couple of passes to make this cut. Plus the end mill it only a 3 flute endmill. Lots of slapping.
    [​IMG]

    Round edges and some sanding. I stil lhave to figure out what im doing with these wires I mean there are alot of leds. I want to condense, kinda, but i'm not sure how I want to doit. I dont really want to resort to shrink wrap. There isnt all that much room under the reservoir as is. I already have to make spacers just to get these rings under the res. Hmmm,...
    [​IMG]

    They work like so. I love em. They are simple and small. They dont get mounted down but they doo kepp everything together nicely:)
    [​IMG]

    Some polishing:)
    [​IMG]

    I was taking aprt QHS's res to finalize its finish and OMG the end piece were hard to get off. First, I purposelly make them tight to fit. Second they been on there a while. So everything was dry. Getting them off were a pain. I have to make note that they dont need to fit THAT tight. Anyways,... After working it off, it was right there at the end! Just a little bit more to go and BAAM! It flies off slamming against the floor. I can assure you I let out a god ole S@#$!!! So I had to make a new one.
    [​IMG]

    This is a new design. More supported.
    [​IMG]

    This is a small care package for Wolverine from Bit-Tech. He lives in Sweden and apparently acrylic rods are hard to come by. So I bought him what he needed here because you can get anything in the USA:) Just have to mail it.
    [​IMG]

    I plan on going spending some time in the studio this week. Definitely this weekend. I have off this weekend. This res is just about down. There are only a few things left to do. I need some studio time too. It's been to long. As usual,.. I need a maid. That place is a mess! I dont feel like cleaning it up:(
