Thanks, I found out the place. Each data source can be tied to a color....So when I get water temperature through any one of the devices coming into AQ5 , I will connect them to colors.

The only difference is that Seanimus has been generous enough to share the details of aqua computer installation hassles, in detail, for the benefit for us all. Shoggy does a decent job of stroking the Users, and providing ad hoc support, but that is no substitute for a comprehensive user manual. The product might be good, provided one get through all the hassles of a very steep learning curve which, again, is largely due to the lack of good documentation. However, the user friendliness ranks at the very bottom, at least from my experience.
Seanimus, thanks for educating us, albeit at your expense, unfortunately. Hopefully, someone from aqua computer is taking note of your log, and will use this to improve the documentation, going forward.
Great Build by the way; I did have you figured for a perfectionist!!!
Thanks. I am always late on my powerpoints at work, as it has to be perfect.

@ Seanimus448 - I've posted your log on InitialDriveGTR's log, along with a note about your attempt to set up a temp load RGB set thru your Aquaero.
There's time,...no hurry and thanks.

My experience is limited by comparison. redface.gif
I will post pictures a week after I have it running, to see how it goes and will hold off on sleeving it until a week has passed by.

So since its the weekend...decided to find out a little more on which tap size is needed ...Paid a visit to Harbor Freight hardware store...(actually there are 2 in my area ..within 10 miles..)
Metric Tap Set $85 for the whole set..


all the way to M24 with two sizes for each for thread height.


Drill 8 pieces with smallest being 5/8..for like $29. and digital ruler us/metric.


Also got this cheap drill press. And this frigging thing just didn't want to work right...the spindle kept falling off ..you get what you pay for $70. But it did take 1/2" drill bits.
Now for a third time I have to go to Sears (those guys are going to hate me) and get another big ass one if I want to continue on this route...I think I am just going to find a metal shop and use theirs.


So used a 3/4" hole saw and M20x1.5 tap. It worked!!. So that is the tap and drill to use is 3/4" for Bitspower Bulkhead/Fill port fitting...Finally.


Now I can return the everything I got today and start to order Amazon parts.

The vandal switch...is weird to find right tap. A 3/4" hole, the thing will just fall through. So its small than that.


Thats a shot of the chart in the tap set..


Thinking it may not be metric. and probably US standard. Now I have to figure that out.. never ending

The price is right above the picture of the tap set.

I had the same issue with my CM drill press. Not sure if you have already tried this, but I placed a block of wood under the chuck, and whacked it with a mallet to push the chuck into the spindle. This did the trick for me.

I hit that so many times..it just wouldn't hold once the stress of aluminium meeting with wood...would just fall off..
I can try again..because the price is such a bargain.

Another trick that seems to work is to put the arbor in, as you would normally, and then bring it down to the drill press table with the handle (may have to bring the the table up a bit, if necessary) . Make sure that the drill press table is at an angle so that you are not bringing the arbor/chuck down through the hole. Give it a good press against the drill press table using the handle, and it should now seat well. Re-adjust and tighten the table at the height that you prefer, in its usual position (not at an angle). Just make sure that the chuck's jaws are in when you are pressing chuck against the drill press table.
I agree with you that it is a great price, and the drill press is more than adequate for computer modding and other light use. Hope it works out for you!

That is seriously one piece of crap. Spent afternoon returning it and getting a Skill from Lowes.


Best hole saw cut I have ever done...went through so easily, didn't shake and cleanest cut I ever did with a hole saw:

Thanks...Now to next part which is making a hole in the lightbox and tapping that.

The CM that I picked up was a 12 speed, instead of the 5 speed (I think,the one you just returned), and it seems to be plenty good for light duty work and other occasional use. There are plenty of other great drill presses that are more expensive than the CMs or Skills, but unless you are a contractor or a serious DIY type, no need. At the end of the end, it boils down what you feel comfortable with, especially taking into account the safety considerations. Glad to see that you are comfortable with the Skill.
All the best with your build smile.gif
