"Built not bought"
This will be a friendly place for members to showcase their scratch builds and toss around ideas for future or current projects. To join just post a picture or build link of a case you built from scratch or from something not originally intended to be a PC case. I will update the OP with a list of members and links to the build log or pictures

count me in. right now anything i make will be out of wood as that is what is easiest for me to work with. a club like this might make me make cases that i won't use just to keep the status. i might also start looking into getting a rivit gun. i have been wanting to make a bench tester and a wood one would just add to much to the size. Hmmmm, my mind is going crazy with ideas now.

I'm needing some help on how to mount the 5.25" bays. I was thinking about doing something similar to the MountainMods 5.25" bays with acrylic. Anyone else have some ideas?

The MM ones look like they could be replicated using 1/8" acrylic on the sides and some 1x1" angled aluminum bars for the frame. You could easily cut and bend the aluminum to make the frame all one piece, then attach the acrylic sides with thumb screws to make it easy to remove. Let me know what you come up with I am going to need a 3 bay holder for my next project, or I may just make one tonight and show you what I mean. biggrin.gif

I'm going to try pulling a 3 bay cage from the Antec 300 I've been salvaging parts from. For the outer frame I'll use acrylic with the cage attached with either rivets or 4-40 screws with lock nuts. Leaning toward rivets though.
