The Unidyne was my first attempt at writing a project log. It was published at HardOCP (and no where else) in 2006. It is much more detailed than my website posting. My motive for rehashing this project is to finally bring all my project logs together on bit-tech and to give myself an opportunity to re-write the original to be more concise. Over the years, the Unidyne has been included in many "top ten"-type lists in case modding. It is difficult to find a "Most Unusual" or "Weirdest" case mod list without the Unidyne being included. I consider this a high honor. So if you have never heard of the Unidyne then sit back and enjoy the ride. If this is old news then move along...nothing new here. The project starts off with 7 pieces of 3" x 3/8" x 8" laser cut basswood separated by six pieces of 1/2" x 1/2" x 8". This entire arrangement is backed by two adjoining sheets of 3/16" x 4" basswood stock. I printed out an enlarged PDF file of the subject and cut out the top curve. Traced out the curve on one side and then flipped everything around to get a tracing on the other side. Resulting curve. Tools of the trade: A Dremel with flex-shaft and a sandpaper drum bit, a hand rasp and sandpaper wrapped around a scrap piece of plywood. Knocking down the end pieces to the drawn curves. Some spacers have been inserted to provide some support. The center fins are rough-cut using the Dremel drum sander bit and the end pieces as a guide. The center fins are brought further into submission with 60-grit sandpaper. Result of efforts. Let's do it again! Exact copies.
