    Hello all!:lol:
    The project name is ZEROS. I like to think of zero in a personal way, Returning to the roots. So Without theme. also I want to try as hard as I can work by hand, just like old times...:dremel::rollingeyes:
    These past few months I've been working hard and unfortunately, I haven't really thought about the condition or development of my PC.
    If you had a look at my lately system, I used some cases and did a couple of mods to it. Due to time restraints I had to rush the project and get it working too quickly and therefore Honestly, I was not at happy with the result.
    but Now It's feeling like autumn more and more in Japan, it's time to work on my PC.

    Okay let's get on with it!

    I never thought of using a step drill bit for rivets - is it easier or better?

    @Karrek -It seems potentially more expensive.
    -Guy that dulled two expensive countersink bits instead of using a cheaper bit.

    @Defyant Mods - and the big glob of magenta paint you have to sand off the end.

    Toru, Can you print over a print? Or does it damage the original? I think if you could accurately re-print in the same spot, you could print on the underside of plastic without the overlap between colors making it look weird.
    - I know, I probably asked before. :lol: -Senile. It just seems fun to try.
