Off to the machine shop all day today guys.I will miss ya all. But i am so excited .I get to play with all the equipment for 2 days.I feel like a kin with a pocket full of change heading to a candy store
. I cant wait to get there. He is going to have to give me a refresher though i haven't used a Bridgeport or lathe in years.But its pretty simple once he spends an hour or so refreshing me.The guy Is also an electronic wiz so my ears are going to be wide open and learn as much as i possibly can from him in the 2 days.
The place i am going has nothing to do with Pc modding he actually builds stuff for Mid evil shows .Old weapons Costumes etc . And works Soldering Chips ina Semiconductor plant i used to work in.So its like a Modders dream this guys shop.
This guy in the past has donated to me just being nice.A sandblasting cabinet ,Complete Soldering station with tons of stuff with the kit.He noticed me working with extremely cheap tools one day and just started showing up with new to me but used equipment to help with modding.But this is the first time ever he invited me to spend time in the shop to do whatever i wanted.He said make yourself at home and go crazy using anything i wanted. So this is going to be better then going to Disneyland to me.
So what i decided to do with the time there is to make as many tools as i can to assist in modding.Will post a bunch of Photos of my time there in a different thread so you guys can see.This whole shop is at the guys house.Omg i would die to own that equipment.
Anyway everyone have a Great day and keep on Modding and "Num1son" your build is looking great. I just checked out the updates.
And i also seen tons of people getting new Water cooling kits. WOOT guys Grats!
Take Care and all have a nice Day! (I will probably bring my laptop just to pop in but wont have much time to chat till tonight)
