Desktop Monitor TOS


#62

That is really looking good Sharon…


#63

Nicely engineered!


#64

I used Rustoleum Professional Light Machine Grey I think @Buddahaid recommended it…


#65

I was wondering too what @rel571996 did to secure the switches. He beautifully routed them out to fit to the right level for us. I was thinking maybe hot melt glue gun…


#66

I used Gorilla Epoxy on mine


#67

with all this talk of desktop monitors I realized I have extra switches laying around. if anyone is interested in them drop me a pm


#68

Except those are not the correct switches; not enough ridges :slight_smile:


#69

ya… wasn’t sure. but I thought I’d put it out there…


#70

Got the bottom section wired n assembled.


#71

How’d you separate the two parts? I’ve been looking at mine, wanting to do the same thing, but haven’t been able to find any accessible screws.


#72

This is why I love a thread just for @rel571996 s build. We can all help each other n see what they all look like!
So… look inside The monitor cavity. You will see two holes. One main center hole. Then there’s an offset hole that you use with a shorter screwdriver to reach the four screws that hold the plate into the base. Have to spin it around to reach them :slight_smile:


#73

Ah, I wondered what that off-set hole was for, lol. Thanks @wood4sheep2 :wink: And you’re so right. These kind of threads help everyone to collaborate and encourage one another’s builds along. I love it!


#74

I agree, this is exactly the kind of thread these forums need more of. It’s great to show a built prop, but it’s so much better to share methods and post build pics. Isn’t that why we’re here, to learn and improve techniques?


#75

This is so awesome @digigal excited to watch your monitor develop…


#76

do you or anyone else have the colors for the cards?


#77

This was done by Greg Schnitzer a few years ago which shows the data card colors:
