Introduction: Technicians Tool Box Pc

Picture of Technicians Tool Box Pc

This is my 1st ever instructable im only posting it as ive been reading the pc in a dewalt case and im now planning on taking that idea a stage further by adding a keyboard and monitor.
Right back to this one I made this a few years ago out of boredom more than anything else.
Sorry its not step by step more just pictures of the finished article.
The whole build was pretty easy with the only difficult part being the cutting of the case to allow cables to be plugged in.
Really all I have to offer is a bunch of pictures but if you do have questions feel free to ask.
I will make sure and produce step by step pictures of my next build

oh and you shouldn't leave the power supply open, it is pretty dangerous.

I have the same motherboard!

Oh, it's a portable ;) cool. Maybe an idea for a next instructable, put an lcd in the lid.

I did that already, take a look at mine.

i was planning to make mine completely portable and have an lcd in the lid, and for that i was going to use t view trp1177 and use a PicoPSU power supply and a regular lead-acid battery.

i like your style

smattingly (author)2011-06-30

did you bolt all this stuff to the case? I wanted to use a waterproof case and if you didn't I'm wondering how you mounted it all.

what kind of mother board did you use?

ulsterscooby (author)stormer11272009-10-12

Handybob, It was just an old atx board I had lying around ive a couple of micro atx boards too so hoping to build one again only in a smaller box.
Im also planning on a larger version in a dewalt case this time with an lcd in the lid section and both pc and xbox360 contained in the same unit.

Always wanted to this but, with a pelican case. Great job looks good. I'm waiting for a (free) motherboard/bios that will boot from usb. You could lose the hard drive and the DVD. There would also be a signifigant reduction in heat.

how is this powered ? what is your 'alimentation' ?

get a slot loading drive instead of the normal tray loading one. It would look nicer and take up less space.
