I needed a PC with a COM Port to program my micro controllers.
So I started thinking and I found, that it could be a good idea to have in the same style, than my monitor
, keyboard an mouse
Beside this, I found some nice brass applications, like the tiny brass roll. Th idea comes in mind, to use this as the power on switch for the computer.
The housing was made of MDF.
The meter that shows that power is on is an old French meter, that sows irregular results. But for the power indicator it is good enough.
The HDD indicator was made from a green LED and a stained marble glued inside a brass knob for furniture.
The switch was made from a micro switch inside the case, a brass roll, and a ball nut.
Now let´s have a look inside.
