lexan, plexi, very nice but WHERE ?!?
When going trough reviews, I quite commonly come accros these words:
lexan and plexi.
to start with, I don't even know what lexan is, let alone where to get it (at the other hand, I do know you can mold it to pretty much whatever shape you like if you put it in the oven long enough :p) and can I cut it like plexi or is it a whole different story.
And now a question that concerns both materials:
where do I find these things?
I know it's not in the GB brico cuz' i've checked and I couldn't find it there.
PS: i'm form the regio of Leuven so if anyone knows a shop in that region that would be supah :D
*edit* oh and since I never used any of these materials in any way, does someone know wich one would be best for dremeling out a track for a rubber band or something like that?
Good explanation at Overclockers ...
I know of one address (where I always go) but it's in Brussels (not far from het Zuidstation):
Guy speaks only french, but has almost everything, and cuts, folds and finishes as desired.
very interesting link Turbokeu!
If I can't find polycarbonate in my area, I'll have to brush up my french I guess :)
I might use some Lexan too, plz lemme know if you can get some
I wasn't planning on getting this any time soon since it'll be more of a theraputical experiment (no rush, just fun and only when I feel like working on it) :D but I might do so some looking arround in the near future and I'll keep you informed :)
Lol, I was google-ing arround and I came across a thread on the Loveno fora about a watercooling-/casemod by... Turbokeu
and I thought: turbokeu, turbokeu, now where do I know that name from ?!? But it's from here lol, that thread was like, 3 years old already :D
nways, no luck so far only thing I could find that seemed interesting was this company called Vink from heist-op-den-Berg but it's rather professional. I came across another thread at loveno fora where I guy explained that he ordered there via his dad's company but that they sell the plates in 3 by 5 meters for 9000 old begian franks and that's tax not included (dno what thickness those plates were but I'm guessing it'll have been between 6 and 8 mm's ).
I think I'm going to brush up on my French ;) or perhaps my "Brusseleirs" will suffise :king: ...wich may not be a bad thing since I'll be able to get everything I need at once (lexan + tools) according to what superkeu said :)
Still busy with that PC-70 project, changed my mind a couple of times (now using a Cascade WB). Everything is up and running great but I'm still busy with the finishing touch (it's a 5 year project :D )
I'm posting less since I have my own company (time!...) but I spend every free minute on my WC project.
I think I'm afraid to finish it and having to start a new challenge, so I'm always modifying it...:rolleyes:
Also I made some other little projects for my PC-70 (digital flowmeter, 240x128 graphical LCD, now a 320x240 LCD...)
(see my website )
As for Renier, never tried to speak "brusseleir" with him (although I am one), he seems a little "kort" in the beginning but once you know him a little it goes better..., and he is cheap.
holy guacemoly !! :drool:
I can see why it took you five years to complete :p
nways, I hope this guy speeks a little bit dutch cuz my french isn't coming along very well... never did really :D
PS: how does "hardsoldering" work exactly?
PPS: get rid of that anoying sound file on your main site asap :p
