screw it, I'm using imageshack.
Made a newer mobo "stencil" and layed out some components.
For the CD drive, I like it at the bottom.
Here is one of the reasons for putting it at the bottom. I've got a plastic window (1/16ish) to put in there and it will be painted or given a brushed look. (if I get a sponsor it will be up to them, I'll start emailing manufacturers and retailers when I need hardware)
I can still put it at the top. I'm not sure what I really want for the case.
An old project that requires better soldering skills than I have (the remote control sort of fell apart, and I can't figure out how to reconnect the antennae)
Here are the good pics from tapping.
Practice makes perfect.
I was also experimenting with different drill sizes.
The top three holes are all using a 3/32 bit.
Then, the bottom four go:
o - 3/32"
.o - 7/64"
o - 1/8" (no pilot)
.o - 1/8" w/ 1/16" pilot
The 7/64" worked the best, so that's probably what I'm going to use on the case itself.Edited by nategr8ns - 5/19/09 at 2:13pm
