    I'd luv that, but I'm too far behind with commitments...

    The trim piece for the Bezel, Hot Swap & Top compartment doors are being laser cut from 1/8" thick Red Opaque Cast Acrylic. We're using a single 75 watt, 24" x 18" Platform "Universal Laser Systems" machine. We use this unit for making retail PC fan and radiator grills. This unit if new, would be priced between $19K - $25K. We don't offer laser cutting as a service, but these guys do! Laser Cutting Service, Inc. offers custom laser cutting to PC builders, modders! hobbyists.

    Next step is making the "H" frame piece for the lower portion of the bezel, from 1.5" thick aluminum. This will have an engraved "David Gerrold" signature plate (white square, 2nd pic). Each of the cases will have two ICY DOCK MB877SK-B Tray-less Aluminum Body 3.5" SATA I, II & III Mobile Rack Removable Hard Drive adapters, behind a hinged access door (red square, 2nd pic) on the front of the case.





    By request from David, two ICY DOCK MB877SK-B Tray-less Removable Hard Drive adapters... to store his Scripts? hmmm

    I finished the side panel inlays last night in between playing the Duke Nukem Forever demo... Now, I'm really looking forward to RAGE's release.

    Mike wanted the drive faces Stealthed. This mod is very straight forward. I'm using 1/8" diameter rod as spacer, but you can improvise this to whatever you wish for your stealth drive mod... and the aluminum faceplate I've cut is 1/8" thick.







    PC Mod Ruler as fence spacer?!





    1/8" diameter recessed hole.



    cutting 1/8" diameter rod



    A drop of ScotchWeld DP-190 epoxy, before inserting 1/8" rod



    Apply 3 layers of Scotch 4010 double sided tape, for a tad of flex in the faceplate for contact to the eject switch.





    paper fits in gap between switch and 1/8" rod





    You now push in lower left corner of the faceplate to activate the Eject.

    As I traced out the badges to make by hand, I posted this on Mnpctech Group on facebook ...."Sometimes when I use a CNC mill to make something, people say "I wanna see you use a Dremel" ...then when I do make something with a Dremel "How come you're not using CNC mill?" ...You can never please everyone..lol.



    Working on the front hot swap bay door handles and case badges..



    to protect the paint finish under the door edge, I've applied Black automotive vinyl film









    The blank spot is for david's signature plate....
