    Not a full update but a little something to pass the time while I recover from turkey overdose. Remember the painted pump? I was looking for hex screws to replace the silver ones…

    These are 8/32" but they're too short and the threads are wrong.

    Poor man's lathe: Cordless drill and rotary tool

    Most of the threads removed

    Clean up with a small hand file

    3.3 mm shaft to work with

    Close-up

    M4 threaded rod stud

    3.3 mm shaft on the end of this also

    Add a section of 4mm brass tubing

    Pressed the tubing onto the screw with a c clamp

    Clamped up, ready for solder

    Add in liquid flux

    A little….

    …goes a long way

    Heat until glowing

    Add solder

    Drop in stud

    Hold down until cool

    Needs a little clean-up

    Final product

    Repeat 7 more times. The long screws are for the radiator mounts and short ones are for the pump

    Much better…Thanks for looking. Bigger update next time around!

    Thumbs up Re: Bärsärkar-gång

    Yes sir, the screws turned out very nicely.
    “Do not trust people like me. I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth. I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible, and when I leave you will finally understand why storms are named after people.”

    Huzza, it is alive! Thank you for the patience and comments. This time a real update to the berserkers and the mod.

    In 1938, Albert Hoffman synthesized a new drug called LSD from a grain fungus that grows on rye. The fungus was called Ergot, and it has carried an ominous reputation for centuries.



    In the end, over 200 people died from eating contaminated rye bread. In the 1800s, the illness was called St. Anthony's fire also known as Ergotism. Before that, historical accounts of werewolves are now suspected to be related to Ergot poisonings.

    The vikings too knew of Ergot and used it in burial rituals. It is a compelling idea to suggest Ergot as the source for berserking. It certainly could drive someone insane but given its lethal nature, its unlikely that it was used for berserking. Was there another drug that they could have used?


    -----------------

    Back to the modding. Time to take a look at the base that sits on a piece of wood and is covered in leather. It will hold the SSD and the DVD drive. To give you an idea of where the pieces fit...

    On the back is the exposed electrical jack that the Xbox power supply will plug into.

    Base marked for dremeling. I'm using an easy lock metal cutoff wheel on a 220 volt dremel. It melts through the soft steel.

    Cut out but still rough.



    Nothing a little filing won't fix.

    Back before dremeling

    After with a little clean up.

    Tracing out the wooden base

    Using a piece of cedar siding and a jig saw to cut it out.

    Sanded down

    A little chisel work later and a pile of wood chips...

    a roughed in place for the DVD and the SSD.

    and the base mounts on top. Unfortunately the cedar base was too soft and a little too small.

    So take #2 with 2 pieces of birch plywood glued up and cut to size. Chiseling was much easier as the individual layers just peeled up with a sharp chisel.

    DVD and SSD in place.

    Top in place

    Added brass cross supports to allow mounting

    Also added the brass frame that re-inforces the case.

    Bent and soldered but still needs clean up and polishing.

    I also back tracked on the PIR sensor. I wasn't happy with the plastic cover.

    I found copper mesh at the local art supply

    which worked out much better


    Hopefully next time, I'll have more pics of this for your perusal. Thanks for looking!


    Many thanks to my sponsors!
