Column to wall braces are finished!
 
Here are the steel angle brackets that are anchored into the foundation of the house:

Oh yea, and my pimpin shower curtain ;)
 
A view from the top of the brace layouts.  UBER sturdy


1" square tubular steel, in the most rigid triangular layout.
 
A few from afar.  Almost finished with it.

You and me both!  I am going to do one more prototype run of the VR block, and then once its has been completed to my satisfaction, then I will make the finished block.

X axis:

+/- 0.0005.  Good.
 
Y axis:

0.001...  Meh.  Needs more work.  It can take me an entire evening to make that 0.001" read 0. 
That little tick mark 1 notch away from 0 is all thats stopping me from firing it up.

SUCCESS! 
Liquid flows, spindle turns, all axis move & chips fly!  All the fluid goes into my recirculating system which is filtered by... an Applebea's take out container.  WIN.  The first cut seen is just a basic outline of my work envelope which is around 11.7" x 7.8".  This will help putting any raw material down on the plate and see where the bits will cut.
 
I think I am going to make a dedicated post for this machine build to have all the pictures in one place.  Most likely in the General Discussion section.

Nate,
 
Well the kids are gone, the two Captains and the house is back to normal. I just wanted to tell you Merry Christmas too and I am sorry it is late and I hope the New Year goes well too.
   As for your Master Piece it is awesome! I am glad We hooked up for this block build because this going to be wicked. I bet the new Home made CNC will make the blocks look wild cool and I still think you should do a shallow cut and put FTW by Nate Man Do on my block.

Now I can resume this block.  I have been down for practically 2 months.  No block has ever (and will ever) take this long.  I was up till 4 am trying to machine a surface plate or "jig" to be used for this block.  Broke out some of my good scrap stuff. 
 
Some pics will be posted over the next few days.

Re:P67 Full Chipset Waterblock 2012/01/03 05:11:33 (permalink)
Although they are a day late, pics a promised:

Here is the finished tool plate.  The advantages of having a dedicated tool plate WITH REFERENCE EDGES gives me something I never had before: repeatability!
Now I can align either the left, bottom, or right sides of that plate with the travel of the machine, then reference the bottom and left edges and I can now make these to within 0.0005" accuracy & repeatability.  Btw, guess who learned how to engrave txt (sorta).  Figured I would test it out on the plate. 
 
I originally designed the plate for use with 1/2" bolts to hold it to the table, but I didn't have any, but I had some M6 screws, so they worked like a charm.  They are pretty close to 1/4-20 screws.  More then enough to hole a simple plate down.
 
Test fitting all the holes with my last prototype.

All holes line up perfectly, and when using pan head type screws it sort of self centers the work piece to the holes.
 
 
Topside:

Believe it or not, thats not sepia tone, its 2 100W flood lights. Not sure why it looks like that but whatever-its a cell cam.  Another perfect fit regardless.  There are some 20+ holes for this block for the various re-positioning to mill out different sections of each side.
 
Still have the holes for the actual chipset block to drill and tap into the plate, but that's much easier. since there isn't much repositioning with that piece, and less holes.

  This is perfect, for mass production, please get some rest so we can se the proto type and then the finished block.  I do Pity the fool!

Before I post the pictures, remember this picture from before the rebuild:

You will see the results of the improvements.

Re:P67 Full Chipset Waterblock 2012/01/04 07:15:35 (permalink)
Here is the noted improvement:

Shaved a bit of slop off.  Not that 5.5 thousandths of an inch (0.0055) is that important in the waterblock biz, but to me it means the repairs made it more accurate.
 
And here is the bottom half of the NB/SB block just after machining:

again that sexy sepia tone for some reason...
 
And here is an almost working prototype:


Just test fitting with screws that were long enough, which just so happen to match the aluminum.
 
And here is the fan option:

I can't quite put my finger on it, but I think it just looks sexy as hell.
 
Going to drill the fitting holes, and mill out the internal channel next.

I much prefer the three spoke grille :) looks sexy as hell and would look even better imo if you had a matching grille on top of the fan too ^^

Re:P67 Full Chipset Waterblock 2012/01/04 07:34:51 (permalink)
It wouldn't be hard to make a grill for the top, but the thickness may touch video cards.  I still have to see how this all mounts if its to tall or not.  "SHOULD" be ok, but I have to test it and see if I have to shave something.  Right now the fan is 0.53" tall off the chips, which may or may not clear.  Obviously it can't touch the fan or it won't budge, but it just may clear.  I could always just use thinner metal, or just shave the metal surface where the fan mounts.

Actually, the bigger problem with the grill is the screws to hold it down.  The fan has counter-bore holes that the screws will be below the surface of the fan (another reason why I chose this particular fan) so only the height of the fan is to worry about.
