LOL...spelling was never a strong skill of mine! Consider it fixed.

Burn, sorry for the delay...I am using a 96 tooth 12" Diablo blade in the Rigid. Small stuff gets cut on a little 10" miter and I'm not sure what I have going in that...I can say it is "newer" and has only seen plexi (same with the Diablo).

School has been very demanding (last semester!!!) so progress has ground to a halt. Though I have figured out how I am going to do my side panel...another stained glass piece. But this one will be permanent unlike the "Flame" that I did a while back (that one can be removed). Should be pretty cool once it is done...now if I could only find the time.

Well I think I finally decided on what to do with the side panel as far as a pattern. Here it is...take a look. I won't be cutting the panel until all the glass work is finished for the obvious reason that it will be VERY fragile when it is only a 1-3/8" border of aluminum. All the pieces will be some type of textured clear glass so that the interior will be kind of visible but not clear...kind of like a shower door. Obviously the round bit is the fan location (you can see the old area through the paper...gave me a nice opportunity to relocate slightly) and it will still have a standard wire grill on it when I am done. I could have done holes or slots in the glass instead but I didn't want the dust build up on it plus it would have reduced the flow and caused more noise...plus it would be WAY more work. Anyway, pic of step one below..."the pattern."

I figured after 6 more months of this thing sitting around patiently waiting for me to finish it the time had come. Well, here is what the inside ended up looking like with no power or fluid yet:



So I had that stained glass idea for the side panel in the last post I made. Well I found some awesome glass to use. A 2' x 2' piece for $60 and I was all set to go...until I finally decided to finish the rig. I went into my pit of a work room, decided to straighten up first, saw a set of shelves I could use so instead started on that. Well, the niche behind the door (where the glass was kept safe) seemed like a great spot so I moved everything, including the glass. Shelves were too wide so I planned on another spot and started moving things on the floor out of the way with my foot. Item 1 moved item 2 which moved item 3 which found my glass propped up without support on both sides...timber! Smash!
The other half (thumbnail not working)

See that nice subtle ripple...it was perfect, just a little distortion just like a slight water ripple but clear and slight enough to allow full viewing...this sucks. The one shining light is that the hardware is so old that all this trouble isn't even worth it...wait, that isn't a good thing, is it?

Looks good! Nice work with the acrylic shroud. How well does it let the heat out at the back?

Don't know...hasn't seen power yet. That's why my sig has the comment about finishing case mod projects. Hopefulle the slots won't prove to be a restriction. If so, I'll just machine them out more or just pull the panel altogether and let it be wide open. Another thought would be to add some HO fans to the panel and machine out the area where they are for minimal restriction.

Wow I am glad I noticed this log. I like the color plexi a lot...very odd and perfectly techno. The support you made for the GFX looks great! Hard to imagine keeping up with a project for that length of time..that's perserverance!

The box you made for the heater coor looks very functioanl and attractive...I like! Boy I wish you had that running so I could know how that heatercore is working for you. Sorry if I missed it but what type fittings are on the Heatercore stock? I am looking for heatercores that are the width of a case--and this one looks just right.

Cool log--now fire that rig up!

Well, a very uneventful leak test has been performed and now I just have to get the panel done. Ends up all that broken glass still worked out...just barely! Pics are coming.

Cyber...no fittings on the HC, the straight pipes fit great and I decided to give it a whirl. They aren't leaking and even if they did there is nothing down there for them to hurt. Of course an empty WC circuit would not be good and water all over a floor or desk likewise wouldn't be the best but assuming the worst she would overheat and shut down. Done. The core is exactly 160x160 and with the plexi box fit the case like a glove...got very lucky as the plexi was a freebie from a guy I work with who dumpster dives all the time. The thickness was perfect though I will admit green wasn't my first choice. He had blue and red but they were opaque and I wanted the option to light it and have the core be visible.

Ok, a bunch of pics. We'll start with the stealth drive cover. We know how to do 'em by now...some double sided sticky tape and ta-da. Well, I added some green plexi so I didn't have to use 6 pieces of tape plus it lets the LED be seen through the hole. Yeah, I thought the middle one was the LED, oops. I'll eventually get a new cover but for now no biggie.
