Bits of wood, glue and clamps; what on earth is going on here?

More wood stuff...


I need to make three more like this one.

Then I think I will need to treat Mr Dremel to a wood cutting disc.

I had to get Mr Dremel out to cut down a stainless steel curtain pole so managed to sneak in a quick cut for the project too.



I was going to cut down the drive cages by a bay or two and make a small box for the fan controller fitted to the back panel.

This is a slight change, the fan controller mounts on the back panel and has a slot in the drive cage. I am thinking of boxing that section of the drive bays with the same mesh that I source for the facia. Hopefully that should look ok and provide a space to hide some excess cables.

I had a little play to get a feel for how the new facia will work.
So far I'm happy and I think I will get the effect I was aiming for.

Thanks to the wonders of gaffer tape I was able to knock up a mock-up ( doh.gif ) with some partially formed parts and old bits of mesh.


The wooden channel provides a home to house some led tape.




The led's are white and I will also mount a white difuser under the mesh, this is to create an effect similar to the chrome strips on the original case.

It occurs to me that the space left at the top for the power and reset buttons is just about big enough to fit another 140mm fan...


If I can get my hands on a dummy or faulty af140 then i will butcher it and mount the buttons through it, the fan obviously wont turn but I think the outline of six fans just sits better than five.

The gap between the two front radiators is where I intend to mount the old Cooler Master badge. I was tempted to keep the front clean but I do want this case to pay homage to the 690ii design so it is only right to keep the badge.

Aaargh! Bloody weather mad.gif

I had a chance to dremel a few more pieces this morning but as soon as I got setup; the heavens opened up.

Could be a while before my next chance.

Poop.

Another small piece of progress; some refinement to some of the remaining templates. Once all the templates are ready I can look to use the workshop space I've kindly been offered use of.

The resevoir mount template is about done and I have begun the templates to mount the fan controller and drive cages.




I am planning to box in the bottom two slots of both of the drive bays. That provides handy spaces to conceal mess and eight drive bays is way more than I actually need.
