Sleeper: Watercooled Lian Li A70b - Page 55

Hey Gentlemen,

Thank you very kindly. It appears I have my shiny new post bit already too.

BlankThis,

I'll work on that, however, with the exception of the fans, nothing in the interior lights up. I didn't see a real push for that sort of bling when I didn't have a window.

I do have a few things I would like to fiddle with yet in there, so I might be able to oblige soon, but for now, I'm busy getting settled in at the new digs. The movers bumped up the delivery date on my stuff from June 22... to this afternoon.

Thankfully I got the worst of the shop set up yesterday in prep. I snapped some progress pics. The wife had one rule. It had to be able to break down and move with us. No "permanent" structures. (My last garage workbench could have doubled as a tornado shelter. Two 3 foot steel clad solid core doors for work spaces, all supported by 2x6 framing.) It was awesome.

But, I am married now, so we have a nice compromise. (I don't have any solid core steel doors laying around anyway)

Here's some shots of the shop, waiting for (most) of my tools:





My faithful (and now full time) assistant, Widget:





Newest toy. Wife actually talked me into this bad boy. (This won't be its permanent home):





And, you might have spied this guy:



That's a last gen A05b I gobbled up off the egg back when they had them on sale. This is a likely candidate for the better half's next gaming rig.

Maybe.

That's a story for another log.

Aw I love the A05b!

Can't wait to see you do some work on it! I just love the whole design of the case.

nice shop, just a bit too antiseptic atm for my tastes
what did that clamp run you? I am eyeing a neat bar & rod bender, but it requires a bench clamp. The ones that mount are way too expensive

thanks in advance

Yeah, I've been mystified by it ever since I first laid eyes on one. I'm anxious to mess around with it too.

I just busted a gut.

The movers came today. Is this cluttered enough for ya?



Edit: the vise... That was $80 at Home Depot. You can find simpler variants for about half that, but this one swivels 360 at the base, and the jaws swivel 360 on the opposing axis as well. Plus it has the pipe style clamp on the bottom. The latter two features in particular aren't too common. If you don't need those, you should be able to find a decent one for ~ $40 or so.
