    a power supply wielded by the atx plug to smash off a side panel which was glued on. It didnt work but it was damn fun and I would reccomend it to anyone in a fit of rage.

    i had a 120mm fan mounted in my top 3 drive bays with 2 wire bread ties and a little bit of adhesive putty (like blutac but not blue) - now it's got 2 black zip ties (not zipped though)

    A paper-clip, two platter spacers from a broken hard drive, a rubber band, and a chicken.



    Incidently, those are the same four things required to build a time machine...




    I won't go into that though.



    You've heard too much.

    :worried:

    Well from looking at your 'tools', I could at least make a chicken launcher :D

    This is from the man that once made a homemade napalm-thrower out of a certain large capacity water pistol.

    Note: Wearing a large tank of flammable liquid on your back, and squirting it out of plastic gun is NOT a good idea!!!

    steel sponge een slijpschijf = grinding wheel?

    the best i have used to "mod" a PC component was a Car (92 Caddy Devile (its mine (im a pimp)))
    I went "office space" on a printer i found in the dumpster (dont ask) and after throwing it from the top of the dumpster, jumping down, repeatedly drop kicking it, and whatnot, i ran over it... a few times. No evidence remained. so i "modded" the printr into a pile of scrap

    Newbe alert!

    Have used forklift tynes and coil spring compressors as clamps. Also used a oil filter spanner to hold a fan over the CPU like the Zalman fan extender.

    :D

    I don't use anything odd aside from my invented rigs and jigs to do things that no other tool can do or because I don't have the proper tool around. For the most part though, I DO have the tools to do just about anything, so I rarely need to use a brick etc.

    A tyre leaver is probalyu the strangest tool i'vr used, to keep my mobo in place whilst i fitted the GFX/Sound cards (some of the lay off screws are missing so the mobo was bending an not letting the card slot in place)
