One thing I have wanted for a long time is to be able to take my games with me everywhere!!
I don’t have big bucks or a workshop this was made in my little flat with some really basic tools ( a piece of flint and a brick ) no just playing they weren't that stone age.
I wanted to make this on a budget, I say a budget but I didn't record a penny I spent but I know it was less than 80 pounds. I think for the money spent I did a good job for the first one ( I plan to make more )
I didn't take any step by step pictures so just pretend in your head that I am in some sort of lab and it looks very important!
Step 1: Measuring up!
Ok as you can see from the picture my work space is the floor but don’t worry it’s organized mess. My first step was to see that everything was going to fit and to give myself some idea as to what I was going to do.
My idea was to mount a Tv and a playstation 3 inside a rugged case with extras like fans, lights and stuff and be able to take it with me on gaming nights with mates. I bodged a lot of the work and I didn’t have a ruler which sucked a lot so I used a measuring tape and good old luck.
Mounting the Tv screen was very tricky, I was going to use the mount supplied with the Tv but it made it stick out too far and would cause problems closing. So I used the mount as a template and got it as straight as I could on the inside of the lid and marked it up with a sharpie.
Then using a dremel with the wrong size drill bit ( I love making things difficult ) I then drilled four holes for the screws that came with the mount. I noticed that the screws were a little on the long side so I put some washers on them to make a snug fit.
Now getting them screws into the Tv with no help was really annoying I pushed the screws through and could not find the whole so I had a clever thought and pushed a screwdriver through to guide the two holes together to put the screw through ( Don’t be rude )
