    Derek, Very interesting read, now I know what the one my neighbor found is, and it's specialized use. Thank You.

    Repurposing A Silver Box (New PC Build)

    Thanks Lew, It seems as if customizing PC's has diminished in the past few years. There used to be a lot more of it going on, but with the tablets, etc. taking over the mainstream sales of computing devices the Desktop PC has fallen along the wayside. I myself don't care for anything with a touch screen, or motion sensor. They simply don't see me. Same goes for the faucets, and hand driers that are supposed to come on when you wave your hand under them. I've had people watch me try to get these things to work, and on several occasions had the person wave their hand under them to get them to work. Their response is sometimes funny because the darned things will work fine for them, but not for me.

    Tabs on the Weather...

    We made it to 36 today, with rain for most of the day. The warmer temps, and rain have gotten rid of about a foot of the snow build up. I wouldn't want to have to drive anywhere when this mess refreezes. I can now get to the well access hatch. Friday looks to be the best day to pull the well pipes, and find out what's up with it. The coffee maker decided to leak from the bottom. ... Anything but the coffee maker. ......

    Todays progress. Our luck continues... Now the coffee maker has died, it decided to leak from the bottom... Anything but the coffee maker... On a positive note the warmer temps, and most of the days rain eliminated about a foot of the snow build up. So what is he doing now??? This needs some improvement. The neighbor found the Brass corners last evening, and gave them to me this morning when I went over to refill the water jugs. The hinges, and other items I already had on hand. So I decided to make a door for the front panel. The concave area is to clear the DPST toggle switch handle. And now for a front view of the door. And the door set into place. It still needs some more polishing work, but I think it's a good improvement. That's about it for today. So until later.

    John, It looked like the second photo you posted.

    John, I'll have to look at it again, but it looks very similar to the one you showed in an earlier post. He found it complete, in the original box. We both knew it was some kind of plane, but were unsure of it's purpose. He has all kinds of unusual planes that I'm not that familiar with.

    John, Now I know what that plane my neighbor has is. He found a Stanley when he was out picking.

    28 at 7:10 AM and snowing, with forecast for morning snow, mid-day frizzle, and afternoon/evening drizzle. So much for working on the well today!

    first show...

    Good luck MaDeuce, There are not many shows in my area, and the ones there are charge way to much to participate. One show has a $500.00 attendance fee. However the attendance at these shows has dwindled due to the low turnout of participants. Maybe the sponsors will figure this out,..but then again probably not.

    Repurposing A Silver Box (New PC Build)

    Thanks Lew, I think the covers give the inside a much cleaner/finished look. And to think my neighbor wanted to turn in the Copper for scrap. Thanks Dave, We're not totally without water, but it's a bit more work to get it. Of course it depends on the weather,...todays forecast...Morning SNOW, Mid-Day Frizzle, Afternoon/Evening Drizzle. I've got a few more tricks up my sleeves, but they will have to wait until I get the well working again.

    Repurposing A Silver Box (New PC Build)

    A little progress update. I've been doing things I have the materials for as I'll have to see what it's going to take to fix the well before I can get more lumber to continue the Desk/Cabinet build. The past couple of days I've been working on Copper covers for the front panel, and hard drive. I also made up a Copper cable chase to keep the front panel cables out of the case fan. First I did the front panel cover. That nasty looking copper cleans up really well. Top view of cover. Bottom view of cover. Side view of cover. Two views of cover installed onto front panel. And a view of the assembly installed into the case. And now for the hard drive cover, first a couple of views of the hard drive before the cover. An outside view of the cover. And an inside view of the cover. The cover is a slip fit, here's a view of it installed onto the hard drive. The copper pipe behind the CPU cooler is the cable chase for the front panel, and inside USB port cables. And a view of what it looks like through the top of the case. I also changed out the DC case fan for a PWM fan that the motherboard can vary the speed of. This is the first motherboard I've had that allows the use of a PWM fan for the case. That's about it for now. Until later.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
