Got the first letter done for the most part! Need to touch it up a little with the dremel and do that little cutout at the bottom. But it looks pretty good! biggrin.gif

can you cut steel with these dremel ? like 1 to 1,5 mm ? at a decent cost ?
and can you grind cut in steel with it too ?

Dude you can do anything with a dremel lol, for the long cuts like for a big window I usually start it with the dremel to get started and finish with a jigsaw. But the dremel can do it all! I have the 4000 kit it was so worth the money($100ish) plus the multi purpose thing I bought(forgot what its called) its kinda like a drill press but it really helps! And as far as cost for cutting 1 to 1.5mm is nuthing lol, you can pick up a bunch of the hardened multipurpose cutting wheels for the dremel online for a few bucks. For the cuts you see earlier I only used 1 of the cutting wells, and the only reason I used all of it is buecause it was the wrong kind and im out of the regular ones. rolleyes.gif

yeah i wasn't too sure because they don t sell any tools made for steel and don't advertise it as for cutting steel , and the guy at the shop clearly had never used one , you know when you ask the guys about the tool and he pick up the box and look behind , like you couldn't do that yourself ,....

Dremels are amazing, but quite expensive sadly. I'd finish a long cut like a window with a 115mm Baby Grinder and a slim line cutting disk, but yeah, I follow the "go big or go home" principle, so a jigsaw is probably best, lol!
post #427 of 851
yeah and i guess if the surface is slightly hardened it it gonna take twice as long while the jigsaw make no difference ,.... i already got a jigsaw , i guess i will stick with it since i don't need to work directly in the case .

Yea, It is advertised as cutting metal and they even ship with cutting disks that say "Metal" on them, Works almost as good at the Craftman or Snap-On air side cutters.

They are way cheaper than they used to be and there are so many models out now that you can pick one up on ebay for a steal! I defenately suggest getting both! But if balling on a budget my second best is the Black and Decker one, its ok but I can tell how much better the dremel was after I got it. The black and Decker one I got for a steal though on sale for $20 but was bare dident come with anything but the tool.... My main complaint for it would be you cannot control its speed as good as the dremel which is crucial for cutting glass(I did this for obvious reasons lol) and its head attachment is hard as hell to loosen for some reason.... I did do some cuts with just the jig before I got the dremel but it is almost impossible to use in cramped spaces and it will vibrate the crap out of your case and bend metal when cutting the thin steel they use in these cases(It happened in this build mad.gif) Also the jig does cut a nice clean strait line but you have to use a new blade every time for the best results! thumb.gif

I still suggest picking up some type of rottery tool even if its a beefed up drill with some good bits, when doing professional case mods its a must have..... the next best ting would be a laser cutter and uhhhhh.... If I could afford that I would just make my own case tongue.gif Its even to hard core for me lol. I have used drills before when a rottery was not readily available to me and they will get the job done, it helps alot if you use one with a trigger lock so you can use both hands to steady the cuts instead of loosing one to work the trigger.... Yea and I understand if all your doing is cutting outside the case but what gets me all the time is the dang vibration and snagging they do sometimes, I have ruined many sheets of metal and side panels for those reasons lol. It may sound crazy but I seem to have a easier time with my SawZaw, im not sure why maybe its the desine....... to bad I caint find my dang blades for it.... rolleyes.gif

Here is the links to the exact stuff I bought:

That PSU cutout turned out very nicely! I also agree that rotary tools are quintessential to most forms of work. Just had to buy one and bought a non-Dremel brand rotary tool that works pretty well. Not as well as a Dremel, but it is more than strong enough for what I need. thumb.gif All your builds are looking great man!

the dremel i m stil considering mainly for grinding instead of filing . but the drill press i just put my feet or a small holder and use the hand drill. i would love to get a milling machine because i m good with them but it s expensive , i was looking at the dremmel trio that show some potential but again i dunno what is it limit.
for the moment i plan more on doing complet new panel instead of modding the originals because i like to craft a complet piece from schratch. i dont really plan on doing full custom water cooling because parts are hard to find and expensive where i live so i don't usually need to work on the case itself.
but i m interested in the glass cutting side , i got a bit of training in glass blowing and cuting but the tools are too expensive and not practical , the dremmel could do the trick for the cutting bit.
i think the next step for me i maybe just make a case from scratch , like that i will get exactly what i want. and i don't think it would be that much more long then extrem mod like yours ^^^

in the shop i only saw tools marked as for aluminium or copper , none where advertised as for "metal" and behind the box it was the same , and i know from work experience that tools that cut aluminium don't always cut steel that well ,.... that's what worried me

i do have a old overpowered heavy bosh drill made more for concret then thin sheet but it do the job. the handle is twice the size of my hand , but i can manage lol (did our hand schrunk in 20 years ?!?)
