    STALKER case Modding

    It's not your fault image hosts are getting greedy. I understand now why so many builders are using Youtube slideshows. It's good to see you got out of that spacial anomaly. :D

    It's a freaky looking kinda cool. Like you want to touch it, but you fear radiation poisoning or something.

    The Iron Turnip

    SOMEONE should. All the stuff I draw that never sees the light of day drives me crazy.
  8. Lovely. Lifetime warranty and tech support? Or are you teaching them WC maintenance?
  9. The model looks good. :D I love purple. I don't like how these contests turn scratch builders into case modders.

    The Iron Turnip

    Hi... remember me? Me neither! I thought I should try to get something up before the one-year mark hit again. It's been a constant combo of perfectly timed vacancies and natural disasters. The problem is I only have time to do little bits. I'm at a spot where to move forward, I have to tear the main assembly down. That's something that would require a lot of time, and there's no telling when I would be able to put it back together, or even if I would remember HOW. -One thing I did was grind some more vents in the tank. -I decided something I could do was distraction , er... another experimental/proof of concept reservoir. You know, something that can be done a few minutes a day for a month. -Enter this scented candle jar. -It has this nice lip on it that could easily seat an O-ring. Since it's glass, silicone would work great too, I just need a cap I could port. The red thing is a sanding disc made from 180 grit wet/dry sandpaper, and some soft plastic. -I made the sanding disc to get rid of the unwanted bumpy stuff on the jar. I sunk this in a tub of water, and ground this down with a dremel extension wand. Respirator and goggles were used, since breathing broken glass dust sounded like a bad idea. The submersion took care of dust well, but there was definitely splashes of glassy water. -The plastic disc worked for a while, but it wasn't strong enough. Something like a lacquered bit of leather would have worked better for a backer. This was working too, but I got in a hurry and used a grinding wheel instead. That made little divots and gouges in the glass I could never clean up. The plan was to sand this down and polish it, but as an experiment I've done enough. -Here's a cheapo alternate that would work: Mate the jar in PVC with a ton of silicone glue. Glue on the lip, (or twist-top threads,) would keep it from popping apart under pressure. -This is the test fit I did on the part right after milling. -Here it is silicone glued to the cap with retaining clamps in place. I added a little glue to the clamps for a better hold. If I wasn't in slob-mode, I could clean the excess glue off with mineral spirits. -There you go! A simple ghetto-reservoir ready for a plastic brain with wires sticking out of it. Your favorite alcohol bottle, or one of Mom's vases is calling kids! I guess I could make something like this on the outside of the turnip, space allowing. -One last bit off the dusty camera: The holiday gag-gift. I had a list of albums I was having trouble finding. Here's one I got ...zipped to floppy. ...5 1/4" floppy... Thanks again to my very patient sponsors.

    yes, it's for the mod I'm just wondering if it will also float.

    Mounting a gpu by the back plate/card. As much as the damn things are starting to weigh, this should become the stock form factor.

    Yeah... That port mod looks familiar.
