Desktop Monitor TOS


#183

Finally spring weather, got the desktop monitor color coated today!


#184

Sharon, what color are you using ? Want to get some for mine


#185

I ended up using the same color @wood4sheep2 used on his. Had tried one coat of another using a HVLP sprayer but didn’t like the result so removed it and went with a good 'ol spray can for color coating. Don’t remember the name off hand so look back in the thread.

Very nice Sharon.


#187

Awesome Sharon.


#188

Sweet work there!!!


#189

Excellent work @DigiGal


#190

So cool, floating in space, inner space grated, but space just the same. :thinking:


#191

Wonderful Sharon!


#192

How did you get that chip in the paint? …Only kidding!:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#193

Sharon That is beautiful!!!

#194

I so want one of those, that is just too cool! Looking great, Sharon.


#195

Can’t wait to meet you at Ticonderoga to congratulate you on this build, Sharon!


#196

only a small urgent question, which font did they use in TOS for displays etc?


#197

Nothing is perfect but Century Gothic is close to fonts seen on the show.


#198

As an added precaution decided to re-purpose some heat shielding I salvaged from old electronics. The new CPU board can run on the hot side. Cut the material to size needed, punched holes for board spacers and glued securely to the board mount surface.


#199

Looks like you got it all figured out. Fantastic work!


#200

. . . And because it’s an energy transfer, added some heat shielding under the DC-DC converter.


#201

Re-assembly after final paint and clear coat, added some white Teflon grease to the bearings of the Lazy Susan.

^ I ended up using JB to mount the switches in place.

^ Used clear epoxy to mount the brass card slot guide.
