Some screw in rivets..they look wicked...hopefully to replace these blah plastic ones...give it a more industrial look. (will arrive Tuesday)
A new cordless Dremel along with an accessory kit for working with aluminum/steel and a couple bits for working with acrylic. (should be here tomorrow)
and will be picking up a pair of red ccfl's from microcenter.
Also, ordered a couple 18x12x.10 carbon fiber sheets for the false floor/hdd cage cover...will take 2 weeks for delivery.
EDIT: forgot to add:
Any Stormer try putting in a full acrylic side panel?
Oh Dude!! See, this is why we always say, ask here first, then make your decision. The cordless Dremel is a weak dog. Well, I'm saying that second hand. We had a guy who had one. I think it was Danny, that thing had little to no guts when it came to cutting metal!
From what I understand of the Dremel line up, the cordless is designed for little things that you can't get to with a corded tool. It's nothing like having the latest 18V Li-ion Drill/ Driver/ Hammer drill which is a major workhorse. The cordless is to polish the doll house, buff out the rust spot on the lamp post, stuff like that, not major work. Lemme know if I'm wrong & I hope you can exchange it for a good one. You don't have to have a Dremel for this work. I had a Black & Decker Wizard for 15 years & it was fantastic.
It should be great for acrylic & even if you want to get into Glass Etching. PM me if you do, I have tips!!
About the full acrylic panel: Nope, don't think so, I've seen a few on the Haf & you need a thick sheet, a good hinge set & a strong clasp but it looks Sweeeet!
Edit: @ PapaSmurf & others wondering. I'm not the one to ask. I was waiting for Enigma to reply about hooking a computer up to the TV but I know his is linked, if not in the same room. With the right TV & the right computer you can do away with Netflix, On Demand, rentals of any kind. You can get Hulu, You Tube, many others that stream entertainment to your computer or HT setup. I've known guys that hooked in thier surround sound just for commercial free music! Think about it, the whole internet open to you with a wireless keyboad & mouse! Edit your photos on your 47" HD LCD, play Dead Space of C.O.P. in full screen full color!
About hooking the cable into your PC, definitely, all you need is a digital tuner card & a few choice programs off the net & you can pick your channel!
About the heat: Heck yeah!! When I had my Haf & Mindy's Scout folding on a total of 16 cores & 3 video cards folding. We never used the furnace! I stopped folding though because the electric bill was too high, gas is much less expensive here. Edited by BriSleep - 10/7/10 at 7:17pm
