Work In Progress - Show Us What You are Working On
« on: May 07, 2017, 03:42:50 PM »
Maybe there is a thread like this on the forum already?

I thought it would be nice with a thread where we all can post pictures (and som text ofc) to show the community what we are working on at the moment.
Larger projects and in-depth work do better in their own threads but alot of what atleast I tend to work on fits better in a thread like this!

At the moment I have a Powerbrick from a Nintedo cabinet I recived a while ago that I want to clean up and give some new caps.
I checked all the voltages (unloaded) prior to the capkit Im about to install, everything checked put fine except 16V, after some searching I think that 16V is not needed and therefore it´s all good with no reading on the 16V pins.

So here it is, dont know when I have time to actually finish it, but the work has started anyways.

Bought a Defender that was completely dead. The monitor now seems to work but the PCB not so much. While waiting for some PCB parts I'm now doing some wood work.

The art work was fortunately in good shape, but the bottom of the cabinet was falling apart in splinters. So now working with bondo and sanding to get this baby in prime shape once again

Well, today I woke up like this:


Nah, I have an old black & decker rotationsander, but it looks like that sandpaper was too thin for that machine and it got damaged after 1 minute or so.
Then I switched to hand sanding to do something at least. Today, I put some duct tape on the backside of that sandpaper and will try it again with the machine. If that doesnt help, maybe I will order a new machine.

About that defender, did you cut off the bottom of the cab and put some new wood panel into it?

do yourself a favor, andreas, get a new EXPENSIVE tool. you're going really strong in this fantastic hobby of ours, so this will be an investment you won't regret on future projects!!!

I will buy a good rotation sander for sure. One big benefit is much less dust at the garage.
