OKAY. So I promised an update and here it is.
First of all, I'd like to apologise for the poor quality pictures. It is 35 degrees celcius here and I REALLY cannot be bothered doing much.
Plus my main PC is overheating so I am on my laptop right now which I'm sure is about to either overheat or blow up lol.
So I finished my Costing. I have attached the full excel sheet to this post for anyone who wishes to view it in detail.
Costing.xlsx 15k .xlsx file
For everyone who can't be bothered, here is a brief breakdown.
500mm x 500mm Perforated Metal Sheet - $8
Aluminium Extrusions - $31.31
Fasteners - $121.12
Components (fans, hdd etc) - $262.00
Total - $422.43
One thing everyone should also know is that I like to over order things. I ordered 500 screws all up which is double what I need but that means I have surplus for further modding projects
I also received some components so I can get started really soon!
Here are some pictures and annotations:
OOH A PACKAGE! I WONDER WHAT'S INSIDE?!?!
YAY! Some screws!
These also came out of that package...
A cat really came out of the package? Yes. Yes it did.
Aluminium extrusions were cheaper than I thought they would be.
This is my workshop.. and what I have to deal with for now. May require some cleaning...
There is the plastic. It's hard to see because it's behind stuff and I couldn't be bothered moving it.
After all the unpackaging, I put everything away in a corner of my room. Btw, I cleaned the steel mesh with soap and water before putting it away - from experience this stuff rusts quite quickly from finger prints.
Hope everyone enjoyed this update. There will be more to come soon!Edited by defyed - 12/6/12 at 2:59am
