Doing a great job.

Mate, thank you . I needed a comment like that to push me on. Been a draining dedicated build. My next build Im going to go all out, plan it this time. I'm having fun with adapting my tool skills to this side.

Next case I do Im going to build one of these http://buildyourcnc.com/default.aspx The build will be in two parts, building the cnc and building the entire build from scratch.

Dual pumps and dual res setup, coming up.

The mod station is so much easier to have a space to work around rather than a bench.

O I have a computer to one corner, makes research easy and why I can keep constant updates will modding .

Lappy got sacked not fast enough, wireless got sacked to. Ran a cat 6e from my 24 port gigabit switch, now I have full access to my server thru remote desktops from the workshop.

I built a simple amd x2 core or what ever they call em, I'm one eyed intel .

All picture are from my workshop camera its an old cybershot tongue.gif 5.0 MEGAPIXEL!!! its not about the pics its about the build. I can make a sheep look like a a bear with the right camera and photoshop.

Every part I build starts with an idea, then the idea is developed around forming it with the tools I have in this workshop. All the tools I'm using in this build are normal workshop tools. Its having the motivation to put in the effort and having the attitude of what ever it takes. Being able to design on a computer doesn't take in account your tooling skills and it doesn't take in account in the rules of working with certain material.

This is my next idea, dual pumps dual res, no drawings . Think steps ahead, and think if I do this how is going to affect this? In my case I'm thinking air flow, ahh front facing fans not yet built. Mounting two pumps, water lines . Dual fill ports, the list can go on and on.

Mask everything you don't want to scratch!

One thing I can't stress enough is safety glasses, get a good set and wear them from the moment you start modding and take them off when your finished. You only have one set of eyes and one stupid mistake cutting steel could mean the end of the sight in one eye. Ask yourself would you continue modding with the lose of sight in one eye?

This is how I marked the res and pump locations out. Keep everything square, no matter what you do. Its not just a 1mm , There's also ten 0.1mms to that mm. 1mm here 1.5 there another 1mm over there. Now you have 2.5mm somewhere you shouldn't , which could mean putting the entire case out, and then your doors sides wont fit as they should.

Im going to stagger the heights of these pumps so that the lines clear each other biggrin.gif.

Now I'll make a template from one side, for a tap 6/32th thread 7mm deep holes into the res ends. I have 16mm to play with, A typical 6/32th case screw has 6mm of thread length. My material I'm working with is 1.6mm which leaves me with 4.4mm of thread needed in the res ends. So its going to leave me with 2.6 clearance as the first 2.6mm of the tap im using is the useless because with every tap it has certain part of the head it uses to tapper into a tap.

Lol its about time you poked your head in mate.

This is really important that you work out the outside diameter of your fitting, If your thinking you can use your fitting to , well bolt the res to the bracket your sadly mistaking. The idea of the o ring is to seal against one surface. If you did bolt it up this one you now have a metal on metal and it wont seal. This point isn't even arguable, don't even bother quoting me on this.

ZhZ4h.jpg

OYZOo.jpg

I've allowed 2-3mm clearance so the fittings pass thru nicely and seal up to the cap res as they should.

Havnt bothered with a drill press, but Im sure these next pics explain it all.

Stepped stage bits, very expensive but better than a smoking hot Mute Mrs that does as she's told.

8bZyt.jpg 750 watt drill on the lowest gear. The trick, to these bits is not to keep your finger constanly on the trigger . On for a few seconds of for a second back on for a few seconds. They cut so much better , and push as hard you can. Pulling out each time it drops a level and cooling it in water. If you don't you'll heat the bit past its temper point causing the bit to change color and it will be good for nothing. around 30-50$ each and they will last alot time if you look after them.

Brilliant up to a 30mm hole with one bit,

Drill your holes according to the size needed and check everything with verniers, my set are very expensive digital suck ass.

See how even the steel I'm cutting has even got hot?

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/3Xx8K.jpg[/IMG Now I've turned it over on a flat surface and clammed and drilled from the other side to clean the hole and grabbed that extra 1mm I want. I surface filled and used a round rats tale file and a dremel to clean the holes so they are smooth as.a7JS2.jpg

Fitting are loose.Dont hit any part of the bracket, perfect.

I only have one pump and one res, Monday I'll put an order thru to Frozen cpu for another pump/res and the extra fittings.

Lol now that wouldn't be fun, I was looking at pump tops but I really just cant see the point spending money on something I can build around. I could get a pump dress up kit?

Mod build everything I can, bolts on parts for mods. No thanks not my style.
