I use Centimetres to measure out my banding, but you are free to change them for your needs.
Remember you can always keep it up to ratio - as a gesture to the author.
Step 1: Tools and Supplies
- Two crock wine caps.
- Two straighten out staples or another type of semi rigid wire.
- Something to band with, a pair of pliers could be good or just use your fingers.
- Some sharp object, a knife would do. Or just use your fingers.
- A ruler. (not obligatory.)
Step 2: Bend 1
Step 3: Bend 2
Step 4: Bend 3
Step 5: Bend 4
That would be the length of this bend.
Bend it in a straight angel.
For the right side bend it so that all of the previous bends are to the left.
For the left side bend it so that all of the previous bends are to the right.
Step 6: Punch a Small Hole
Step 7: Bend 5
You are done.
Fit it snugly in the fold (where the screen meets the keyboard of the laptop so that it rests on the top and the "foot" of the laptop.
The extra space we made makes for more fresh air to enter the fan and ease the cooling process.
You should experiment with different cylinder type - whole materials to gain more boost if you like.
Or build more units to elevate the front. Or join some together to make a pyramid.
The options are limitless.
