Subbed, was thinking of doing something very similar save for using a radio would be using an old TV.

Please tell me you are going to do something with those awesome tubes too!

Awesome concept and creativity. The above poster was right about it being something like out of Fallout 3. You've got my sub! Good luck! Would be awesome if you could incorporate a flexi backing and find some old cold-war lights (similar to found on ebay) to give it the vacuum tube look to supply lighting. Very interesting build!

After a long movement of my house, a little vacation and cleaning the attic, I have found my enthousiasm back to do something about this build.

Totday I have started this build again, first I will disassemble the radio. Ofcourse with pain in my heart, because it's a real old radio. But there was no way to bring it back alive. It's eating dust knowadays.

So let's disassable the radio!

After 64 years a disassambling the radio. First the backpart.


It takes only 4 screws.


After pulling the internal from the case it sees sunlight! And what do we find... yes a dead spider.


What a history is there in this radio. I like the glass tubes!


This is the front of the radio.


It was a real world reciever!


These buttons will come back on the build.


I removed the frontpanel. I don't think I want to clean it. The old look is fine.


The lights for the plexiglass, nowadays we use LEDs.


De front is removed from the internal radio. Everything works with fine wires and little springs.


This was build to last indeed. Nevertheless it ends here.


It's really old and everything works mechanical.


I was shocked because of what I found here. Wires, wires. Nowadays we have a little PCB for it.


OMG I love these Tubes!


Now it's time to disassable the speaker.


I really wanted to see if the speaker is still intact. Indeed it was!


The speaker is gone, now the rest. This is gonna be the blueprint of the new front. So it's an important part.


The fabric is gone. Just a waste.


Here are the important parts for the build. The back, front and plexi.


This I bought six months ago. It's the eyecatcher. It had a steampunk feeling to it.


Here an example how it's gonna look. Great!


And so only the case is left. Cleaned it with water and no chemicals.


And now it's time to measure it all! Till nextime!

Hello Readers!

It is a lovely day here in the Netherlands! So glad that I have some spare time!

Today was the time to change the color of the HD6570 Sapphire. I'll give it a brass colour.

Here are the pictures of today, the HD6570.


This is the brass colour that I want.


I have to pull the coolingblock from the PCB first.


There they are, the cleanupbros.


There isn't better cleanstuff then this.


And I had to tape the parts that shouldn't get paint on them.


Once freshly painted it looks like this. If it feels old, then my work is complete.


After a couple of hours, I began with cleaning the sticker.


And here is the coolblock back on it's PCB.


And I had to show the topside!


Then it was time for the lightbulbs.


Because the colour wasn't any good in my room. I had to take it outside for some good colour photo's


And a close-up. *what a lovely weather*




So this was the part for the graphic card. But there is more. oh? Yes ofcourse! Because in the time I had to wait for the Paint to dry. I had something else to do. Measuring the Philips.

Gladly I have some PC parts, but I couldn't find the right one. So I offered the new Lian-Li benchtable. *With pain in my heart*


And there is is then. I drew the line for my Dremel.


Pada-bing pada-bong! And there's a tiny table left.


It has to fit ofcourse. And It was my lucky day!


For verification I had to check of the powersupply will fit. And yes it does!


So and now with the frontpanel from Philips on. Just to check if it's the correct hight.


Enought cooling? Check! Therefore I have a XSPC mount bracket.


And this was my update for today! Hopefully you enjoyed it! Till next!
