Quite regularly, people ask for help realizing their designs, or help getting something done that’s just out of their reach (tools are expensive!) For the most part, I can make more of these if you’re interested, so feel free to contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Buttkicker mini LFE / Obutto R3volution brackets
Here’s a recent example where Barnacules Nerdgasm, a YouTube hero, needed some brackets made for his car-racing simulator system. We custom-designed and machined these out of aluminum, making some ultra-sturdy brackets, with some cool, custom engraving, and then we put together a cool video showing how it all came together. If you’re interested in a set, these don’t come cheap, but they are really cool, and will rock the house!
If you’re interested in a set, or you want ones that fit the 80/20 extrusions used in 4PlayRacing sim frames, just drop me a note, email@example.com.
Update: I’ve redesigned these to create the 4CELNK product. At 1/2 the weight, much simpler, fewer nuts-and-bolts needed, and at 1/3 the original price, there’s finally an easy way to mount them. Check out all the details.
Custom computer heatsink mods
C.A. Grimes in southern Washington contacted me a while back with a problem he was having trouble solving. Being an avid gamer, high-performance graphics isn’t just a goal, it’s a necessity. Keeping all that cool, while avoiding the incessant fan noise, was his goal. The only problem was that the aftermarket heatsinks he got just didn’t quite mate up with the Thermosphere liquid-cooling blocks. D’oh!
Nothing that couldn’t be solved with a little custom machining, right? So, he shipped them up to me here near Seattle, and in with a bit of measuring and double-checking, I put them in my CNC machine, and moved metal so it all fit together.
Again, if you’re interested in having me make some cuts, and don’t want to hire an entire machine shop ($$$!), then reach out: firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m sure we can figure out something that works.
