I've seen them in all sizes, ebay will probably be your best place. Unfortunately they are not cheap. I work with them daily thumb.gif

this is the one for which you wanted old style light buble ?

(maybe just tell your kids that touching electrical connector is not a good habit ^^, i m a bit worried. But i like the early initiation to computer building biggrin.gif)

for the burndi plugs i have worked with some that were already dark green military , with specially good pin fitting, cable fixing mechanism and splash resistant , but i can't remember the brand , i think they are made for the french military but not sure.

you can find these sort for peanuts but the crimping tools are incredibly expensive.

Yea actually this has about 9 of the similar waterproof connectors in it. I was thinking of drilling them out to accomidate the differant types of pc connections. As for the cables I have alot of 550 cord but its all black and im not sure if I can find original green but if I do I may use both...

Hey, I stumbled upon something I might use for my build: Butyl noise insulation sheets. They are relatively cheap and work nicely to sound and water proof stuff.
Check it out!

are these plastic fitting for garden hose ? i wouldn't use plastic fitting , accuracy when manufacturing with plastic isn't great , easy to get some leaks from imperfection or small lips and the plastic can be damaged by heat and sun.

I probably wont be using them but even if I do I know the work just fine because they handle alot more PSI and flow than what I would be using them for!

For the tubing just stick with some black rubber to keep it military.

Also, make sure the cables are really messy. It can't be representative of military IT without having messy cables.

I wish I could pull this off. Being a USAF aircraft maintainer I got a lot of ideas to make it work. Perhaps you can use 1 or 2. thumb.gif all these ideas actually came off an aircraft.

  • As suggested cannon plugs would sweet.
  • For wiring (might be a pain) make every wire the same color or sleeve each wire with the same color sleeve.
  • As suggested nylon tie instead of zip tie would really give it that military look, also thought about using an Air Force wiring manual to add that more authentic look.
  • I saw a thread where this guy used steel tubing for his watercooling system and it looked really sharp.
  • Guarded Toggle switches are neat and easily available.

Actually on aircraft most lines are either braided or titanium (no rubber) and their wiring is incredibly neat and organizedish wink.gif

I have no doubt that they are, but he and I are both Army and both in IT. You should see the cabling we deal with.

He's not going to be able to get braided hoses for any reasonable price. I was thinking more along the lines of NTVs and TACs since they use mostly rubber hosing.
