You must just have space for the heat to escape!
Stop hoping and do the experiment. Turn the lights on!
haha.. what ive done now is just the basics of it.. still loads of work to do.. have to wire the whole thing and build the lid..
i really hate the hack saw.. anyone in Edenvale have a table saw that i can cut a few L-pieces? pretty please?!
its gonna look like a tek light when its done!
Just a thought... instead of fiddly little fans that will be a total bitch to replace when they blow - why not just use an air pump...it can stand anywhere...and a single airline running up against your power chord wont be to all that visible... A nice big one will deliver way more air than a small cooling fan anyway....
Ivan suggested that too.. i'll see after i seal it up and see how hot it gets.. thanks for the suggestions guys
Why dont you buy it from Aluminium Trading and have them cut it to size for you, they are in edenvale? They use a circular saw with a blade made for Alu
Those heaters should land in a few days. will keep you posted
Have you tried Communica for the fans? They sell 220v ones so no transformers needed.
made the Frame of the lid today. In the empty area I'm going to use some alanod.. Expensive but all I have on hand.
Lid is going to just sit in the main frame. It's snug so it shouldn't fall off.
1. Drill 4holes for the cabling of the unit
2. Cut alanod piece and glue to the lid frame
3. Drill mounting holes in ceiling for The unit
What's left to do is get a pice of alanod and glue it to the lid frame and then it's done.
Why dont you get a piece of cut to size aluminium for the top then it will blend in with the angle and it will not look wavy as alunod tend to look.
Awesome DIY dude! I agree with JP on the wavy alanod.
well done, very nice.
Where can I get some of that?
Give these guys a call - bought from them years ago....
Aluminium Trading in Edenvale are always good, Eurosteel, Metals Centre, TW Profiles, just trying to think of who else, just asked that you want a scratch free piece with the plastic cover still on.
Give me the dimension and I will call a contact and get you a price or see if I can maybe organise a offcut at a good price.
Wow that would be cool! 31cmx61cm think it's 2mm thick?
