I really like the Phobya Radiator stand and I'm about to buy one but I thought, "Why not try to make my own". So after a few hours in sketchup. I came up with this. Inside the rad stand. You can see where the Rads go.
Outside the rad stand. Here you can see where the fan holes need to go.
I actually think I may be able to just cut the openings by hand and then just use some modders mesh to cover the holes. That will be way cheaper in the long run as I won't have to ship the plexi out and pay for a laser cutter and I can do it in 1 big piece.
Here is how I will cut the fan holes.
All I did was make an X across where the fan hole needs to be (mounting hole to hole) and then drew a 2 5/8" hole there. Delete the parts that are outside the fan hole and there you have nice rounded corners. Should be easy enough to make if I take my time.
Total dimensions are :
1' 7" tall
1' 5" wide
4" deep (might make this 5 for thicker rads)
8" x 2" feet
All materials are 1/4" thick acrylic.
But then I started thinking about weight. Water weight to be exact. 3 full rads + res and pumps might be too heavy for acrylic so I started looking into .125" thick aluminum. I sent some emails last night to some companies to see if they could help out. Waiting on the responses now.
