RetroMod (cardboard case) [finished] - Page 6

post #51 of 97
Do you have a scale or any way of checking weight?

I'm really curious as to how this thing compares to a steel/aluminum case.

It is more light than aluminum and a lighter than steel.

no, my English is not very good, and when you put only the initials I can not understand. Paper mache is a type of paper, paper machine is probably what I would be creating, but this is cardboard machine.

my too, to now.
a silver paint layers


Then yellow

the support of the DVD reader

Place of the source and the HD

strengthening the support for the motherboard

the motherboard tray, the temperature sensor and HD LED front..
first reinforced the base where the mother is supported

Mothertray supports

the supports cross all support of the mothertray to give it more rigidity and some of them help support the motherboard :S

were modified screws holding the mother, welding a washer to have a larger bearing surface.



mother place.


temperature sensor and HD LED front.
