Custom Test Bench (Needs Name)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well, I'm not quite sure if this is cool enough for a name tongue.gif

I got bored one day, and decided to take apart my CoolerMaster Centrion 5 (Becuase it wouldn't sell on CL).

I decided I need a test bench just days before. No particular reason, I just needed it.

So, now I am simply building it from the Centrion 5 parts. Plus a couple things I picked up at the hardware store.

This is the first case I've built from scratch if you can call it that. I've done mods, but nothing published. Maybe you guys will like it? Maybe not? It's just something to entertain me untill it's time to upgrade and mod my sig rig.

I think I'm going to go with a black and blue paint theme.





5/14 Update
Well, I didn't realize I needed to account for the saw blade in my measurements. Now everything is off by 1/8". Yay, I need to remeasure everything tongue.gif
It took me about half an hour to simply make the power button/LEDs. It'll probably look pretty nice though. I'm going to route then into the wood. It'll all come together as time goes on.


The side panels of the Centrion and all the other junk is marked up to be cut.

Kitty loves to help me measure ^^

5/15 Update
Still need to get my tools back from my father. Family always takes advantage of eachother don't they.


Well, here's a sketchup I made with color and whatnot. What do you guys think?

Still haven't gotten that rotary tool back -.-
Father went on a short vacation, now I'm going to a sports tournament in Virginia. So I'll probably make some progress on Monday. I'll start cutting the metal up.
