  1. Past hour
  2. perfect tolerances as long as it fits 😄
  3. Today
  4. I was originally going to use the blow gun, but forgot to pick up the fitting for it, so instead of waiting, I said "Hell, the nail gun's got one!" :D
  5. Last week
  6. CPU waterblock customization seemed right to stay on topic .. arrivato il riser cooelrmaster.. mounted the ek waterblock on the inno 3d rtx 2080 super twin x2 ready for the custom loop ...
  7. hahahahahaha using the nail gun to blow the dust off, ROFL
  8. I mean, I can't imagine what would make my mill lean all of a sudden... - Oh... Right. -I made a thing. -I guess the edges were moot, because I sanded everything even. I figured the top would need work, so I added 1/32" to it in the model. Sure enough, that was the side that had the weird gouges in the cut. Here's a teaser with the switch assembly. -I guess I hadn't sanded the sides in the earlier pic yet. Here you can see that I drilled the holes the rest of the way, and tapped stuff. -Next up: This jig was so I could mill the ports connecting the two manifolds. -Done. Now I had to drill the rest of those mounting holes and tap them. -So, more squirrely tool setup. -There was some equal squirrel levels for the tapping. Who is the idiot that designs these things?!? -I used the base plate to find the other two holes. I filled in the holes with fine-point marker here. Earlier design tweaks in cad moved the holes closer together because the material was much thinner. -And nailed it. -sort of... Viva loose tolerances!
  9. Earlier
  10. Pretty much what I said on Bit.
  11. *non-covid-cough* *non-covid-cough*
  12. Yeah, I work around it with full depth finishing passes lol
  13. the work was a lot I did not have time to post new photos but here is the work at what point it has come. let's take care of the memories intel i7 9700kf 3.6 ghz 12 mb cache processor installed by PCHUNTER led assembly 200mm master cooler fan 360 mm radiator positioning with 6 fans, 3 in and 3 out waterblock ek mounting on INNO3D RTX 2080 TWIN X2 video card waiting for the cable riser cooler master to arrive I do some tests, it fills well ... EK combo positioning on the top processing and conclusion of the lower panel processing and conclusion of the lower panel... lower casing that will contain the controller of fans and rgb lights of the whole case. positioning of lights on the support of the internal panel. positioning of lights on the support of the internal panel. completion of the internal panel and graphics
  14. So guys got there in the end, here are the pictures here, more can be seen here in larger format, this last year has been a bit strange for us all. Lets hope 2021 keeps us all safe and getting back to some normality, I wish all of you to stay safe, anyway enough of the rumbling on here are the completed pictures. That’s it for the layout, now lets look at the items on the desk to go with the build. I love how these turned out, this is on the left side of the build and tie in nicely I think Then on the right side due to that side of the case being black with the red and white samurai case I done this to the external devices. All the Painted items (headsets and mice) were done with a metallic silver, then green and blue and white mix of pearlescent on left side and the same but with red pearl on other, then the red was scuffed down to give some wear and tear, on the mice I coated them with candy yellow, then lacquered them with more than enough coats so I could when not fully cured but ok to touch could then rough up the finish, but only in areas fingers would touch. On the headsets, I just used matt lacquer and then went to town scuffing that up as well to match the whole wear/worn effect on the pc. The full gallery of build can be viewed here all 122 pics 😛 If you want to see the video of the build click here or view below.

  16. Pretty much. The fact that it's something like, .001" is the real pain. I'll never get re leveled without an indicator. I can still sand it out.
  17. yeah, my guess would be that it's leaning too (that is to say the bottom of the endmill is going away from the direction of the stair stepped sides). I had similar struggles with mine too. two or three sides looked great, because it was constantly re-cutting the surface, but then the other side was stair stepped
  18. At my age, losing rigidity is a constant fear. ...I had to go there. Anyway, after all that bragging about this setup, I got a pretty bad surface: I got the new bit. -I used the down time to rearrange all the lights and hoses so the work could be seen better. I promptly snapped off the back hose. -This bit has 1 1/8" cutting length, but the fluting is continued further. It was exactly what I needed for this deep cut. 7 inches a minute, .032 inch depth of cut, .27" cut so two passes each cut = 4 hours+. ow. -Here's where I'm stumped: The back and left side edges are like glass near the top. -Better pic. The front and right side are grooved a bit. I'm thinking the mill is leaning just a bit to that direction? It's not enough to see using a square, but when I fly cut a high spot on the top, I noticed the cutter leaning that way too. -Here's the one that's really confusing me. The front left corner was getting gouged consistently in a staggered pattern. I was cleaning the chips. It shouldn't be doing that on a .02" shave anyway. -Another angle. Anyone? -Anyway. Here's the un-drilled, super rough, half-finished CHONK. I've already started sanding. It was found in a heap at a recycling center ages ago. Of course it needs sanded. :D I even used it as a table at one point.
  19. I actually had to move the router up in the mount almost as far as I could. I found out that I couldn't move it ALL the way to the top, as the v-wheels would come off the rail at the very end, when I was trying to do the full depth cut (outside contour) and allow it to shift by about 1/8" and lose rigidity... that was fun lol
  20. I bet that was 'spensive too. I can run that kind of stuff in the Taig. It's really solid. The spindle is even set up to allow 3/8" shanks to pass through the top of the assembly. You could potentially drop a bit into the collet to cut a really deep pocket. You'd need to loosen the bit and re-zero until finished. That doesn't sound very fun, though.
  21. realization of the last upper front and back cover panels I do all the tests on paper when everything is in measure for the folds I prepare the acrylic sheet that will be folded, puttyed and fixed to the case with M3 countersunk screws bending... the second one, back.. now fixing with fiberglass filler and then for metal bodywork. install thermo applicable threaded bolts further modification. front panel buttons wear application with sandpaper.
  22. from the pictures that cut quality does look pretty good. For the res I made for my A1 build, I ended up getting a 4" long 1-1/2" DOC bit, and BOY is that thing weird/scary to run with that much sticking out of the router lol
  23. Site's still up? whoah! -Side ports... That was... snug. I set up this bit to cut 1/2" deep, while making sure there was clearance for the collet. When I started the process, The Z ran up the 1/4" clearance gap I normally work with, and crashed into the top of the frame. Oops, forgot about that one. There was a lot of tinkering to get everything to fit. -I got my ports cut, though. Next I sanded. -I didn't too fancy. I roughed out with 150 and 240 grit, then went straight to the powdered cleaner buff. -Until I finish up, I'm leaving the masking on. For now, have a nice pic of my ceiling. -I milled out this chunk of 3/4" and 1/2" to make a switch marble housing. There was a tense moment when I misplaced my ballsack. -Eventually, this will be backed with this pearl stuff, and a tiny switch placed behind. -Oh, right. I teased I was going to get after this big plastic. I sliced off a 4 inch slab. I wish The new mill was as easy to level as the tile saw. -Say hi to the new "air compressor." It's quiet, low power consumption, and an effective calf workout. This quarantine hasn't helped my weight any. -This is the start of a 3/4" deep pocket. The total time was around 3 1/2 hours. I could have made a more efficient operation, but this is such a huge chunk. I'd hate to screw it up. -This is where I'm currently at, and where I'll likely be for a week. I was impressed enough with the finish of the 1/4" ball bit, that I decided to get a square end to finish up the outside. I didn't want to use the 1" depth of cut bit on this and potentially muck up the part where the shank would touch. -If any of that makes sense. TL;DR - I bought a long bit to finish. -Well, as long as I could get.
  24. It would be doable with some tweaks on your cnc router. It'd take test fits and micrometer use while the part was still in the machine. I had to do some of that too. The whole point of milling the wood joints was to avoid hand sawing/chiseling.
  25. Hopefully your Christmas went well Cheaps! And hoping for a good new year as well. So... a few updates to catch up on... I'll have to send you a hand saw since you're now getting in to dovetails I like the tap guide, neat idea. Also, I'd be so nervous trying to make that bridge connection with the dremel lol
