Very cool ob1, nice work
GO THE SHARKS
nice work ob1. for having the exact same officeworks computer desk as me.
Good job. Looks good!
I haven't read the entire thread, so this may be a stupid question.
Are you planing on getting another monitor so you don't have to continually move it? For me I would find it annoying to always have to move.
Anyway looks great, great effort on your first welding project.
yeah its annoying to move it, but its not $300 worth of annoying I dont play it every day, so it's not too bad.
nice dude, has turned out well, good job!
thats a really neat build. well done m8!
bugger that i wouldn't be able to help myself and would just move it in the living room right smack bang in the middle if you had a 130" projector screen! lol.
awesome build, i learnt how to solder for modding and your build is making me think of learning how to weld so i can build cool shit like this heh.
about how much all up you spend on materials etc? did you already own the angle grinder?
Looks awesome, very jealous.
I found the plans below if anyones interested in making it. Its from wood so for those like myself that cannot weld to save themselves or dont have access to the equipment but can cut wood, this sim might be for you
From what I've found the plans are a copy of this unit here that costs around the $2500AUD mark. I think the OP seat would be a lot better on your backside but if you put some foam or something around the seat it should feel a lot better.
with 3 toddlers running around - not a good idea! It has to stay down in "daddies toy room" where the little monkeys cant climb on it.
Not to mention the divorce that would ensue if i put this type of "furniture" in the living room .
Still...i have to get off my lazy ass and take it upstairs for at least one day with the big screen.
All up here's what's needed to do the job with a welder. The first costs are specific to the cockpit and the rest are the general tools, which i consider an investment for the workshop
$0 misc nuts'n'bolts
$20 angle grinder
$10 flapper disc
$20 grinder clamp
$50 welder (i shit you not - Aldi special!)
$60 welding mask
$20 welding gloves
$10 welding rods
$40 gas respirator (optional)
btw, you should move your right surround speaker to above your right front speaker.
lol, with a name like audionut its no wonder you're so pedantic.
The whole study has just moved downstairs, so i have temporarily placed the surround speakers on top of the desk. I need some more speaker cable to run them to the wall behind the desk.
its ok, only us fussy audio nerds worry about sublime sound.
excellent racing rig, i love playing Rfactor... might look into a cockpit if i have the time, what mods do you play?
Edit: where did you get that G25 for $200?
man thats an awesome price for all the stuff you listed, i might just have to put this down as a xmas present or bday present for down the track heh.
and hey i can always put it down to learning a new skill.
square hollow section. Just like RHS, but square.
