    I read your reply in Bender's voice; now I'm going to re-read your whole thread in his voice!

    Well I'm glad to have made you smile!

    Thanks for the insight! I'll keep this in mind if I ever have a project that warrants it. Capacitors probably have a more chemical smell, no?

    If I ever happen to grab a sample of this perfume, I'll make a thread to let everyone know what I think; naturally, without context, that will have a number of people wondering why I made it. :laugh:

    Thanks for not flame my topic. Would be great to see it burn an other time. :laugh:

    Hahaha! Even now I'm reading it all again. That was a trip!

    Whehe, it's sound better with the voice of Bender indeed. But now everybody does. :laugh:

    You should do that. Whenever the oppertunity is there. Hope it smells great (but thinks not).

    When I drilled the radio there was a awfull smell. I almost had to puke. This bakelite just turns my stomach. :cry: just horrible. Also if you clean it, the smeel will go so hard up your nose that it would almost come off in an instant. :eek: Don't ever do that again. The whole house is submerged in this stinch.

    So now is the waiting for the tubes and grill. The Tubes are coming this week. So I can be busy with the lights.

    Update!

    Hey all! I'm back again! And did some work on the build again because the acrylic tube has been delivered!
    Hold on to your pants because I have some bad news. It almost made me cry... *almost*

    I've ordered the Grill cloth online and the one I had chosen was "Charlie". Yeah!
    But today I got a mail about my order. It can't be delivered anymore because they don't make it anymore! H*ly cr*p! All these weeks... for nothing. Made up my mind and finally I had made a descission. All for nothing! So I thought about to order "Alpha" instead. But didn't. Yeah, why don't order "Alpha"? Because it's to thin and need a thicker grill cloth. So I ordered an alternative one. And what it is? Yeah that is going to be a suprise.

    So let's leave the chatting and crying here and watch some pictures instead.


    The tube that I orderd and clamps to hold it and some LED stuff for the "tubelight".

    Colorspray can and plastic primer (use it for the build also)
    [​IMG]

    Sprayed the Ledstrip brass

    And sprayed the clamps! Looks good *I think*

    Sawed the tube for the smaller LEDstrip just to let you see how it's looking

    And last but not least, 3 hours of polishing! *oooh the stinch is horrible*
    [​IMG]

    Result is polished Copper! Oh that looks great with the copper Cpu cooler!
    [​IMG]

    So that was the update again! Next update I'm gonna solding the LEDstrip and then marry the Ledstrip with the Tube.
    And hopefully I can let you all see what Grill Cloth I bought.

    Till next!
     
    ste2425 and PHaS3 say thanks.

    Hello readers,

    Ready for an update? Here we go! Got a little suprise here going on. Especially for the readers that didn't like the idea that I should turn a radio into a PC.
    So what happend? I bought an old Radio to turn it into a computer because I want to turn it back again into a radio. :twitch:

    *OMG what did he said?* Yes I did! :D

    And some people asked me if I could make a movie, because they wanted to see the light and fan in full operation. So let's begin with just that.

    And here are the pictures:

    So instead of turning it into a novelty PC, you're turning it into a Home Audio PC? E.g., run ShoutCast, Pandora, WMP/Winamp/iTunes, etc.?

    Yeah something like that. I'm using Spotify at the moment. But it is still a normal PC. But you can use the radio as a speaker.

    Considering how small the speaker and amplifier PCB are, why don't you run two speakers in stereo?

    Your welcome PopcornMachine :)

    I could. But the room that I have is still small. And the radio it selve was a Mono speaker. But this is more like a funny thing to do. Because I can! ;)

    Thanks George_o/c!
