Modders Ruler

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So, I saw this at a couple sites, one site has a $65 copper edition and xoxide has a discount on this one 34.95
http://www.xoxide.com/pcmodder-ruler-gauge.html

Anyone have any experience with this, is it worth the money or are there any better alternatives. I myself have never modded anything but recently picked myself up a Dremel 3000 and a free 4U server chassis (chenbro) from work...(should be fun to mod)....basically I want all the right gear/accessories to do the job...working with acrylic looks like fun as well and may get into that too...anywho sorry for the ramble....am rather excited biggrin.gif

I kind of made a rougher version of this a few weeks ago. I just laser cut some acrylic with a couple measurements on it.

I never ended up using it for anything useful though so in my opinion paying $35 for something you probably wont use is a little ridiculous.

thanks for the input, thinking logically, if I ever did need a guide or something for like hmm a screw hole for a case fan, to just use the fan grill for screw placements or whatnot and proper drill bits...seems a little overkill to me.
post #4 of 7
there's also lots of templates you can print off for cutting fan holes/screw holes.. just google it.. smile.gif I've used several over the years and they're nice and easy..

I like these, but then again I am a bit biased.

A good eye for design, a laser cutter, and ADD make for an interesting combination. I really do like them. I have several. thumb.gif Trying to work out a way to do templates for radiators too.
