so i took my chase with me to work today in the hopes that i would have some time to work on it before i went home and guess what! i did i worked off and on all day! so here is what i got done.

sorry in advance... most of the pictures from work are kinda junk... i forgot my camera and needed to use a really junky one we have for insurance stuff.

i started by marking where i wanted to cut with a grease pencil and a square


time to get my tools ready. and as always safety first! but yea i just used an angle grinder with a cut off disk on it.


did a quick test cut to see how it would work with the disk and speed of the rig (the disk was a bit more aggressive than i would have liked but my boss wouldn't let me use the good ones

Walter approves

REALLY strait cuts and not too messy for a plunge cut with an angle grinder


got the 4 long cuts done first just so i wouldn't mess up the steel sheet that the top is formed out of.

then i started the angled cuts (if i could do it again i would have given my self some more room around the fan screw holes from the beginning. it would have made things look allot nicer and more finished, but more on that in a second)

all cut out.

as you can see i cut a little too deep and hit the spacer on the grinder on the paint and you can see what i was talking about a bit better about the giving my self more room

the front is marked out and waiting

i gave my self a little more room (but still not enough....)

crappy picture but Walter thinks these cuts are good, a bit messy as a result of the disk falling apart from getting passed around the shop all day

i cut just a bit too far on a couple of them... but the lines are strait


we are building another media blasting booth and we got the hardware for it today and i got a chuckle out of the company that we got it from


this was what the dog and i showed up to this morning and our office manager looked confused (thats part of the frame of the new bead-blasting booth that the boss man built over the weekend)


BACK ON TOPIC!


back home and you can see what i was talking about for the jagged edges


cleaning up with my trusty round file

front and top all cleaned up



this has made me wish i had some hole punch out tools like Bill Owen used on his Overkill project (you should check it out if you haven't already its REALLY pretty and makes my work look like a monkey with a hack saw)

a couple more of the finished (for now) chase that i took with my sisters D-300

the front vent

this is the one i messed up on the worst... good thing it will be behind a mesh screen

that's all i have for now but i might have another minny update before tomorrow morning even if its just some high quality pictures

heh you typed that as i was uploading the pictures that show that you have better chopping skills than i do on that mesh...

but to be honest the mesh on my case was never punched out strait to begin with and when i was looking through the Scout Owners Group it seems that mine is the odd one out with that problem...

but your right its kinda funny how we are doing prety much the same stuff at the same times

you know what they say! Great minds think alike!






of coarse simple minds seldom differ.......

I'm really liking how this is coming out. I was lazy and just used some tin snips to cut out the mesh. If I ever aquire a dremel I'll do it right.

i wish i had a good camera like my sisters D-300

i spent about 20 minuets in the kitchen messing around with it trying not to brake it using my "Cooling Duct" as the subject of the photos

so here are a few that are just think are pretty


product placement much? im SHOCKED that that came out as well as it did

nice clean cuts (almost) and some LED action

acrylic is fun to take pictures of and no that is not a crack in the top right corner

smoke in a box?




long exposure fun





that's all my sister would let me do but i think some of them are pretty neat

sorry if i bored you with this post but i had fun taking the photos and thought you might as well

i got bored again...

so i fit the cooling duct into its home in the chase (partly cus i wanted to and partly cus my dad was asking where it went. him being on the older side (66) hes not too "up on the techno-babble" and wasn't sure where it went and my sister is asleep on the couch wth the baby on her lap so i stole her camera again

heirs how it looks for now

the camera is still set up for the darker shots and i couldn't get any good shots with out the flash witch unfortunately washed out the LEDs quite a bit

ill probably cut a cable management hole in the bottom drive bay to avoid the mess of wires sticking out the back of the tray like that yellow one

and the controller under the duct

and im sleepy so im gona go to sleep now. i might take more pictures tomorrow

Those long exposure shots look awesome. I wish I still had my good camera, sadly it died on me.
