Unfortunately I had to due to surgery on his right hand to take a break, but now it can go further.


Even with handicap I could hundreds 0.5mm riveting solder and thanks to a Resistance soldering tool went this really optimal.


The Pertinax plates are merely soldering agents and are later replaced with plywood.
The inner retaining strips I could milling and drilling, thanks to the repeatability of my CNC machine all adds precisely.

Now even lack the internal fan panels and then I can start with the doors.

Splendid fabrication. I find the miter groove and fold method you used to make the corner boxes especially top notch work. I have never seen that attempted with metal, it is a fairly common technique for producing boxes (1:1) for stereo equipment, speakers and such. This thread caught my eye because I have actually been looking at getting one of these (a 1:1 40') and had to take a look and I am glad I did.  I almost went ahead and bought a real nice one last week (The floor looked like an Apitong bowling alley- was basically brand new), but I am thinking I need to put a concrete slab for it to sit on first, otherwise the darned packrats here in the desert would have a metropolis built under it in short order. Keep up the great work, will be following along!
