ok Update time

Image

The Hinge part for the upper half of the case. I cut the notch out with a dremel and drilled 1/4" holes at each end for the friction hinge to fit in and to allow the wires to pass to the lower case.

Image

Looks pretty good so far.

Image

Sanded the cover down and drilled the speaker holes with a 1/16" bit. I used the original case as a template.

Image

Yep looks like a DS.

Image

Image

Gluing the hinge part to the cover. Tapped the cover to the other half to keep it still while the glue sets.

Image

All dry. I added a thin piece of wood to the bottom part of the screen opening. I thought it looked weird without it.

Image

Side by Side

Image

Now to counter sink some holes so that the two parts can become the upper half of the case.

Image

Image

Image

Image

I want to try to find some Stainless Steel wood screws. Size is #2 1/4". ACE only had them in brass.

Image

The tube for one side of the hinge will be made out of an aluminum tube. But its I.D. is to small so I enlarged it with a bit on the drill press.

Image

Right size now.

Image

I decided to use epoxy to attach the tube to the case. I also spread the epoxy on the inside of the joint so that the case just fall apart due to the stress that the friction hinge will cause when the DS is opened.

Thats it for now.

Just for testing purposes, can you show us a pic of the top half guts installed in the wood section running?

I will after I finish the top half. Still needs a finish and the epoxy is still tacky.

My grandma could do a better job than this. It's pathetic. Why didn't you just shove a DS into some stick a dog chewed up?


Oh yeah...then it might not be maple...

Carry on...
