Shock Slayer finished up a meet-up video from last week and posted it up last night! It’s pretty cool but really just shows a glimpse of what happened over the weekend, but it’s still pretty cool. I really wish we took more pics and video, but the coolest part of this video is a time lapse he did of me doing some recessed cuts with my CNC for his N64 project. That starts at 5:44 on the video time line so skip ahead if you’re in a hurry (and don’t want to get sea sick).

So last month my buddy [SS] set me up with another case cutting job for another commission of his. This time a portable Wii Laptop, which would be made up of 2 [Poly Case] casings, the ZN45 for the base and the ZN40 for the screen. I finished these up early this week and he just received them today and was very pleased! Though I don’t take credit for the design as his friend [Beta] did all the CAD work, the cut job was still a lot of work, but was quite fun.

Now this would have been done a lot sooner had I not decided to tare apart my whole CNC control system and be down for two weeks because of one damn wire being in the wrong spot, but it is what it is and all is good for now!

So I look forward to see these projects of his put these casings to good use. They should be pretty cool any way so I will wait patiently and report on them when I see them!

Finished off a nice little commission from our old pal Shock Slayer. He sent me the .dxf files for a design he worked on and I turned it into a machinable file. This came out quite well with the exception of the back slats where on the last couple of cuts, the clamp I had holding the case down failed and that screwed up a couple of the slats before I could fix it.  More pics can be seen HERE.

Anyway, overall I think it looks pretty decent and I’ll be doing a couple more for him in the near future!

In other news, I’ve got some pretty big things I’ve been working on with fellow MBB member RDC. The guy is circuit board genius and his help has proven to be what I think will make these ideas of mine take shape. More to come on that later once we get closer a working prototype or two.
