Story:
Japalan toivomuksesta päätin sit kummiski laittaa tän esittelyyn... Eli, tein kovalevyyn plexikannen, joka vain pieni osa tekeillä olevaa koteloprojektia. Plexikannen rakentelin alkuun valmiiksi risaan kovalevyyn ja toimivaan 120Gt levyyn sen sitten nopsasti vaihdoin, ettei pölyä pääse kuoren sisään. Kun kotelo valmistuu, tulee tuohon viellä punainen ledi tai pari, joka vilkkuu koviksen aktiviteetin mukaan. Kuvissa 1 ja 3 on ledilampulla kuvattu esimakua tulevasta. 4:nnessä kovalevyn kiinnikkeet plexiseinämään.

I made hard-drive cover to plex, what actually is only little bit of coming full case project... at first i build cover to old broken drive, then i transfer it to working 120Gb drive. When full case is finish, there are 1 or 2 red led in drive cover which blink by drive activity, that glow show in pics 1 & 3 by ledtorch. From 4 pic are brackets to hold drive in case wall.

hienoa työtä!

few seconds you say... hmm... I guess you have really shiny clean room. :) in my room half of second would be more than enough to spoild hdd. However you did that good job. Working hdd with plexi is really rare. And working hdd with that capacity it's unique!!! My one hdd died few days ago so i'm gone have testing field - maybe some day i'll do the same trick :P

sweet! It's amazing how long you can leave a drive open really. Just keep the dust down. Good work 5/5

Kotelo-projektin edetessä tulee levyn takaosaan kotelo, joka piiloittaa ide-kaapelin ja virtaliittimen.. Samasta kotelosta tulee kirkkaat kumiletkut, joiden päässä on ledit plexinkannen valaisuun..

Opelrun13.01.2005 17:39
Hmm... Ei tietoa, mut kuvittelisin, ettei uv niihin erityisemmin vaikuta. Toivoakseni ainaskaan, kun koteloprojektissa tulee koviksen viereen uv-neon...

Isosceles12.01.2005 20:42
Tyhmä kysymys mutta vaikuttaako valo(uv säteily) jotenkin noihin kovon kiekkoihin? Voiko hajottaa kovon?

stebenwulf11.01.2005 20:52
Thats full 5/5!!!

jonzo11.01.2005 17:37
sweeeeet! 5/5

Opelrun11.01.2005 16:47
-> (*anonymous*): Because i finished plexcover to old broken drive and then quickly transfer it to working drive, so no need be in lab (drive was open only few seconds)..
->(splinter_cell): Rubbergasget keep drive tight.

Harakiri11.01.2005 15:24
That looks awesome. 5/5

splinter_cell11.01.2005 03:30
4/5 only because the led is not positioned inside of the drive, simple asthetics. thats all. otherwise great mod. how did you seal the hdd, do you have a gasket of some sort?

*anonymous*11.01.2005 01:13
amazing stuff. did you do that in some kind of lab? a spec of dust would ruin everything

torax11.01.2005 00:27
Tyylikäs :) 5/5

Opelrun10.01.2005 23:30
Tuli tos viel mieleen, et piti sorvata 3mm holkit lukupään ja kiekon laakerien tukiruuvien ja plexin väliin... (Ne hyvin loistaa kuvassa 1)

Opelrun10.01.2005 22:48
It's work fine... At now it was runned over month. 24h/day, It's in my p2p-server...

m10.01.2005 22:29
does it work?? I does, how did you manage to do that? I've seen few of that kind, but non of them worked longer than few days.. . most of them didn't from the begining. In fackt not many desides to do that kind of mod to a woring drive. But still for me its 4.5/5 (which makes 5 of course :D )
