Those inside rounded edges look really good to me thumb.gif

I tend to do those with a drill then dremel the straight lines to meet with the drilled holes and blend in with the file smile.gif

Also gotta love the look of raw aluminum.

Dood I am totally n00bing my way though this. My filing and metal working was definitely sub-par the last time I tried it. biggrin.gif

I attempted to cut a window once and it was a complete disaster. I'm keeping things as simple as possible this time. I've already humped up once but thankfully I can flip the panel and it won't show. redface.gif

Thanks, I've tried to drill out the corners when I remember.

Currently working on filing the top edge of the backplate. The top panel of the case interferes a bit so I had to make some modifications. The picture actually shows where I need to improve. Didn't notice it in person.

Wow, didn't know you had 2 logs goin at the same time. What nibbler is that? It looks like it works different than the Klein one i use. Those straight cuts look pretty sick

 


I actually have three builds going. I still have my 2P Stacker build on the backburner.

It is a Bessey nibbler. It is been heavily used so I bought a newer one on Monday. Also a Bessey.

Isn't the Klein nibbler one of the square nibblers? With those ones you can't do one continuous cut like these as far as I know. Those kinds are much harder to keep straight like this.

I don't have a garage and it is -30C outside so I prefer not to use power tools whenever possible.

 

Yeah, it's definitely squared off. I never realized that other nibblers could work like you showed in the pic from your other log. I'm glad i saw that. Now i'm gonna have another tool to mess around with :D

 

I live an apartment, so my "garage" is located in my living room or kitchen depending how much of a mess i think i'm gonna make. Metal/Plexi shavings are easier to clean off the faux tile in the kitchen :p

My garage is also my living room. tongue.gif I keep a small glass desk in there when I am modding. It also is my studio. biggrin.gif

EDIT: Success!

Next up is the new clean motherboard tray. Cutting a new motherboard tray should give me a significant improvement in cable management. Especially w/ the new idea for clamps I have. thinking.gif

You may n00bing your way through, but that's definitely more worthy than n00b status!

Yes tongue.gif. Plus I have two other machines, an HTPC and a FreeNAS box. Although I do plan on ditching the HTPC once the Stacker is operational and actually running in its case.

Do you really use all of them? Seems like a lot of computers for one person.

Are they all watercooled?

The NAS is on 24/7 as it gets used all the time. My gaming computer is on 24/7 since it runs folding@home. My 2P Stacker is on all the time as it also runs folding@home, it will double as an HTPC once I actually get it completed. My HTPC gets used all the time as it is the only form of media in my living room. The Forever Alone FT02 will run stuff critical to the other computers so it will also run 24/7. So ya I use them all redface.gif. I've tried downsizing but I always run in to problems that me realize 2-3 machines can't unfortunately do everything I want.

folding@home? Scientific research?
