Done some work on the Machine and Monitor today so here it is!
reinforced the back panel that snapped with a piece of angled metal riveted
back panel mounted on standoff nuts
sadly the cold cathodes i got didn't fit so it they'll go in the pile for "Lanmunition V2" instead we used this light
Hd activity mounted on a standoff behind fan so you can see it nicely when its spinning
got all new bolts in the fan and grill
added a reset switch and soldered some stuff up
heres the back so far hoping to add some grill for ventilation this will be sprayed black and cleaned up a little
most of the front soldered on just need some cleaning and tidying up not permanent because we still need to finish the front panel and paint
finally time to see if we have killed anything in the process so it was time to hook up some stuff and switch it on!
booted fine everything seemed to work except the light it had a mercury switch that thought to have caused the problem but was later found out to be the terminal in the socket which was easily fixed just solder straight to the bottom of the lamp
remeber the monitor? well atlast we had the time to cut all the holes we needed
video and switch
connected and boom it works!
temporarily sitting on top
you can see the light behind the fan
so far with the monitor
all i have for now im hoping to get most of it finished in the next 2-3 updates
Thanks for reading!
