BTW Please comment on what you think of the acryllic design in my log. I'm passing it over to my guy tomorrow, as it's too terribly precise to do mysef.
A shame indeed... but this too shall pass... and yes let us look forward...

I popped into your thread, fished around and left a note...

oh? you wantes to knows???


I use the edge of a fresh utility blade and blade scrape the edge after sanding. I never flame or polish any edge that I want to bond--i simply knock it down till it's true and scrape it.

Never use tape either...I use the weight of the pieces to make the joint seal up...

I think the main part is finding the right solvent and developing a sort of mindless/timeless application technique where the only thing that you are aware of is the flow rate of the solvent...and only fill the applicator 1/3rd full...

Keep then coming...
Thanks for the advice. the razor blade might be the one to help a lot. Also there are some more watered-down versions of the #16 solvent. One of those is paintable. I am going to give that a go in conjunction with the blade...

*takes up acrylic, solvent and blade... assumes Lotus*

Heh... really though, I do like a good trance-state.

the fumes will do that...

I am currently using some solvent that I do not like to work with from US Plastics, too runny an dries too fast.

In FL I was getting a particular solvent I became intimate with (we even lived together for a while) and I miss it It was just the right viscosity and had the perfect drying time...you could give it the old double needle if you were quick and remelt a gap or two...sometimes...

thanks for the tips! My new design really needs to be bonded for the most part. Hmmm lots of experimenting coming my way

Sorry it didn't turn out as planned, but it still looks damn good man.

I'll be watching for your next build for sure!

Hahaha... LMAO.... 2 weeks late...how typical of me.

I was like: .."Hey!...it's a box...how hard can it be? ...6-sides ....slap 'em together...BAM! a case.." ....NOT!

It was that type of hubris that got me into trouble.

But I am ready for the next one. I have made certain that I am intimately familiar with all the shortcomings so that I can avoid them next time...

...we will see how closely I was paying attention.

Thanks rage. Yeah... I like the look of the case it works great insofar as airflow. It is like a wind-tunnel. The problem is the darn height. Tower coolers and internal water cooling are simply not on the menu...

Folding and LANing with little or no OC'ing... that' all.


Thanks for taking a gander guys, and I appreciate the comments.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm (did I already say that? I'm sure that was somewhere else in the thread so I don't think it counts...)



I have one of those fan controllers and I think its very nice Works well and looks very cool to me

http://img240.imageshack.us/my.php?i...5final1ub2.jpg

That picture has convinced me that the overhang at the back of SFF which I'm planning won't look too bad, ty!

Have you thought about copying Kopi and extending the acrylic upwards with a seperate detachable lid? That would give you plenty of room...

Anyway, loving it
