The third, fourth, and fifth pieces from the bottom just to the left of the cutoff wheels appear to be mandrels (why they gave you three, I don't know; I've been using the same one I have for years).

When using a cutoff wheel, use a light pressure to avoid burning the work, slowing the motor, and prematurely wearing out the wheel. Hold the tool firmly to avoid binding and breaking the wheel. Higher speeds will speed up the cutting action while using less pressure but can increase the chances of burning the work. Be absolutely certain you wear eye protection; safety glasses or goggles AND a face shield are necessary to protect your eyes and face from flying grit and chips, especially if a wheel should fly apart (that could give you a nasty face cut or cost you an eye). Make sure the work is well secured, such as clamped to a surface or in a vise; you need to have both hands and your full attention on holding and controlling the tool.

Thank you Lady Fitzgerald for your info about security procedures and care. Reped +

Not only the mandrels come in pair but there are 3 cutting wheels and a looot of sanding strips, and several pieces on the little right jar as well. (it has 200 acessories)

Not that I knew right away what they were. I just remembered be cause I paid for a nifty speed chuck to replace the mandrel that came with my dremel. I think I paid less than $4 including shipping from eBay. Thing is awesome and I don't have to remove it to use the plunge router base I just picked up from Amazon. Dremel tools are so awesome for their adaptability. thumb.gif

Exactly. That's why they include several equal acessories. Reped +

What Dremel model do you have Ceadderman?



Trying to rivet with stainless steel rivets is indeed not an easy task (for me) with the tool I have.

I'll be getting this:

http://www.amazon.com/Astro-1423-13-Inch-Heavy-Riveter/dp/B0039697ME/ref=pd_sim_469_6?ie=UTF8&refRID=15448G6JVDF0H0P36W7Y&dpID=41d9xMwilDL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_

Thoughts on this riveter?

I have this same Dremel 395 setup.



Right down to the speedchuck. I had a laugh that it looks exactly like mine. I will have to post pics of it while it's in the Plunge Routing Base. tongue.gif

I'm not sure we are looking at the same things.

Here is a mandrel:



This is a mandrel with a cutoff disk attached and the mandrel chucked into the motor:



This a picture of three different sized collets and a collet nut:



A complete assembly that includes a collet, collet nut, etc. is called a collet chuck. Dremel and other similar tools use tiny collet chucks. I've used much larger collet chucks on machine shop lathes and mills.

look up from the mandrels, I have 3 of those as well. But above that are the collets. Apparently on my phone the madrels look kind of washed out enough to make them unnoticeable. thinking.gif

I'm on my bros Lappy atm so now I see where you were referring to. blushsmiley.gif

It's quite surprising the prices variation we can get from the same product (almost 50 bucks here). I'll be using the several techniques you have explained through the last pages of this thread to secure it down and use both hands to rivet with that riveter! wink.gif Thank you ! That helped a lot!

Ahh the speedchuck. Plunge Routing Base is some handy accessorie. We want pics now! biggrin.gif


Btw, does anyone mind to share (or inform where i can get) a template for the psu base (the bottom holes/ hexagons) that I can use ? smile.gif

Thread Starter 
I just completed a major update to The Cube by adding watercooling (CPU-only loop). And naturally a scratch-built case deserves a custom watercooling loop, of course. I didn't originally design the case with space allowance for radiators and pumps, so the best place to put all the equipment was outside, hanging off the back in the fresh air.

Mounting everything externally gave three advantages: it removed most of the dangers of leaks/failures inside the case, it's easier to do maintenance, and the cooling efficiency is better. I think the placement worked out well in the end, and the result maintains the cube theme.

Components:

  • 1/8" aluminum angle mounts, secured with 6-32 SS screws
  • XSPC Raystorm CPU block, radiator, and compression fittings
  • Phobya Reservoir
  • Generic aquarium pump (240 L/hr, sufficient for small low-restriction loop)
  • Hardware store everything else


First bench test of loop assembly:



Showing mount for radiator, and routing of 3/8" ID 5/8" OD tubing. Note minimal plumbing inside case



Closeup of CPU block, just because it looks cool:



Closeup of radiator, reservoir, coolant temp monitor:



Glamour shot of finished result:



Temperatures dropped from +16º above ambient to just +4º at CPU idle while overclocked to 4.4 Ghz. Haven't tried overclocking higher yet, but will soon. No leaks or glitches; this sub-project seems to be a success so far.

Before & After makeover:

^Very cool. thumb.gif

Here are pics of my Plunge Router Drexel 395 setup.



And



Came with another guide for cutting circular holes/edging external cuts etc. Have a plastics/drywall bit in it atm since Home Depot seems to be doing away with Dremel Routing accessories.

So looks like I will be getting the kit from Amazon. wink.gif

Well...after lurking around for ages, I decided to make a case. It will be my first scratch build so I am not going to go too crazy with it.

Hello all! I'm working on a custom scratch case for a company to use in the oil field. All I've got right now are rough sketches and a parts list. I'd love all of your opinions on it and I am BEYOND! Open to any and all suggestions as this is my first scratch build and water cooling! The main focus of this rig is to pretty much run as constant as possible since it will be used basically 24/7 for a month or so at a time. Our biggest concern is to keep the super fine dirt at the site out of the main components. We were originally replacing our computers every few months and never had one last longer than a year due to the strain put on it in the field. I need to make the main case that will house the motherboard and components as airtight as I can.

Have you considered a box inside a box with the Radiators filtered and the exterior of the outer shell filtered to create a "clean room" effect? When you're out of the field you separate the exterior shell to access the internal filters for cleaning. thinking.gif

I hadn't, I'm just not exactly sure how to do that. I'm trying not to add too much more to it to conserve price. TBH, I'm trying to stay under 6K as much as i possibly can....

But I'm havng a had time visualising what you are saying....
