    If you can come and pick it up I have miles of spare ethernet cables, I can cut you a fresh piece. Rather not mail it though :)

    As for the P5Q-E you can just tell it to share the internet connection and set the other PC to get the internets from another computer and not a router.

    You might want to space them out a touch to prevent vibration. That or use some rubber.

    that gap between each will be far too flimsy surely? As in the metal in between?

    Unless its done like a 360 Rad, so you cut out bits in between two and just leave platforms to screw/mount to.

    I'm not leaving them bits in... lol. They were left to help me measure.

    Now, the ultimate question - Do i do curved or straight edges on the mounting holes?

    And Alex is right, this will be like a Rad.

    Moon, is that sugar paper you used as a template/stencil or just normal (pink/red) paper/card? i went down B&Q to find a 120mm holesaw, was expensive - the good quality ones anyway.
    damn that's a lot of slashes!

    It's just Red card. Sturdy enough for templates.

    haha, ok.

    How much was the 120mm down south?

    I feel i'll use this tool for afew things, so the price might be alright.
