Only if it sucks :P It sucks. The hose was melted though which deminished suction, along with all the filters it has and gunk stuck inside the whole thing. If I took it apart and cleared the crap and replaced the hose, I think it could be usable since it was a pretty powerful vacuum to begin with, ...

So far I've got it to an estimated height of 5cm, but I can't confirm that until after I finish grinding down the heat sink. It gets incredibly hot and I don't have gloves to keep myself insulated from the heat. 11cm x 13.6cm x 5cm vs 15cm x 16cm x 11cm. I can cut 4mm off the front of the board sinc...

What about "Pii Wii's Playhouse"? It was an option along with Pii Wii Herman... But that man scares the hell out of me! He looks like a pedophile and he randomly shouts all the time! Then again, he was arrested for jacking off in a porno theatre http://www.mugshots.org/hollywood/pee-wee-herman.html...

I'm a lazy cheapo.. Could I use a Dyson vacuum for a vacuum form? It would save me from having to buy a vacuum pump since I've got a broken Dyson in the loft. If I replaced the hose and cleared out all of the crap and gunk do you think it would be usable?

Any idea how much I could save in space? Actually, rather than asking I'll go get the drive and look for myself.

Make the DVD smaller. Tips? So far, I can remove about 0.4cm from the base of the drive and most of the excess on the back of the drive for the fan to go. Removing the rubber gromits will reduce the size slightly but the ditch in the laser bay and cut a bit more plastic and get myself another 0.2mm...

Gamecube Micro

OK, I've started a new project called the Gamecube Micro. I want to make the system as small as physically possible. My starting list: One gamecube Plastic So far, I've desoldered every port except the AV out and the controller board connector. This isn't a portable mod just so you know. Progress so...

Homebrew lightgun anyone? Update: I made a request for pinout on the DVD unit and mobo connection. I made a quick diagram of the DVD unit front and back so if you rip the traces like I did, you now have an alternative soldering point. http://img426.imageshack.us/img426/6536/gamecubedvdunitfrontij4.g...

I need the pin out on both the DVD controller and the motherboard connection to the DVD controller. I just ripped up about 5 of the traces on the DVD unit .. They looked desoldered, but now I need to track each of the traces and solder directly to those instead. Hell!

With all that rust, I highly doubt it would work.. Plus that thing will be loaded with dried on salt. The best thing you can do is wash it down thoroughly with distilled water and leave it to dry, but the chances of it working are highly slim. Even if you do manage to boot it, I can guarantee the la...

Looks awesome.

Now all you have to do is go to Halfords and pick up some ISOPON P40 and P38 (They sell them in a twin pack for about £10) and fill in some cracks to make it seemless. Nice job on the paintwork by the way.

N64's are incredibly expensive here right now. They cost £30. That's how much I get Gamecubes for.

Pricing it is one thing, selling it is another. Since I have a spare Gamecube, I may aswell miniaturize it. I could work it into a mod providing the screen works on NTSC though (the cube is NTSC).
