See you on Monday to wish you happy new year. If not then Wednesday for sure.
Returned the Band Saw and Drill Press (because it didn't take 0.5" thick drill bits in the chuck). The Drill Press that takes 0.5" are like $50 more and much taller and bigger. And I don't want that.
Rather just pay $20 to a local store and use theirs per shot.
Atleast a refund from Sears for like $400. Which should make 2013 start off better..
Picked up few items from Home Depot (Metric Tap and Die) and the NTE 16 AWG black wire from the owner of NTE whose main hub is in NJ. He saw pictures of my build log as well.
Gave me a big break.
If you buy 16 or 18 AWG from Amazon or other distributors, chances are that it is NTE.
Confirmed the partitions are fine after the cut out...it wasn't used to hold the mobo wall in place and it was actually the reverse.
Trying to line the holes up with the inlet to radiator. It could have gone in straight..
...to the radiator closest to you in the shot (not the one at the back, because the mobo wall is right on top)..
After all that measuring and checking and rechecking...alas...it will be no where in straight line from the mobo wall Pump/Res adaptor...even if I move that ...it needs atleast 1.5" movement to right for me to run a perfectly straight right angled bend into the radiator.
So back to the drawing board...Thinking..
This has to be done now...Because you would want to make the holes in the slightbox with top aluminium part still there (before it gets cut out).
Once the Slightbox aluminium top has the right holes in place I have to transfer those circles with pen to acrylic below, and then only proceed to cutting out the acrylic. That is one time deal,...no mistakes allowed; otherwise scrap.Edited by Seanimus - 12/28/12 at 7:01pm
