      Had to come back to the bookcase mech and finish it off now that the top side is done. Had to go through the cabling and pin the 12 pin molex so fingers crossed I did this all correct. Also made a metal bracket to hold the corrugated tubing to the underside of the turntable (mounts on the machine screw bolt) as I noticed on some images elsewhere this is how it was done.



      I noticed these 4 holes with T'nuts on the top side, does anyone know if these are used?

              On one side they are pretty well under the Thing box, and on the other side they are under the top left corner plastics.

              lol, yeah I though I would show both sides in one image so yes, it is split

              Will search my pics.

              I have looked at other online images and seen these are not used. Maybe they were part of the manufacturing process or something ?

              The wiring for the red flasher on the lower left part of the ramp (just before the wireform) really has me stumped. In the manual it suggest's it is on the same common as the 'Jet Bumpers' flasher's, which is linked to other flashers (red wire). But the common that goes to the other ramp flashers is a red/white wire. It seems odd that this flasher would have a different common to the rest? I would have assumed this isn't the case, and it uses the same common as the other flashers on the ramp (the red/white one) and not separate, but can someone please confirm this for me please?

                I reckon you are correct and not used.
                I will open up my completed taf and confirm but from this finished photo the right hand side is unused, cannot see the left hand side being under the thing box

                  After a trip to Tassie for a week things are back on!
                  Picked up a nice new sheet of ply, and its time to start marking out panels, measuring everything 2,3,10 times so I only have to cut it once

                  hmmmm, fresh ply


                  All marked up and ready to start cutting. Hopefully the weather will be kind this weekend so I can get it done.

                    Cutting time!!
                    First I had to go around each piece roughly to get it out of the sheet, then go around each part as precisely as possible.
                    All in a days work, ready for routing!



                    All that was left over from the full sheet;





                    Onto the router bench next day;



                    Yummy locking mitre joins!





                    Finished!
                    Its such a relief to not have screwed something up. Its very easy to cut something wrong, rout the wrong edge etc. Very happy

                      Awesome job!!
                      Is the ply the same thickness as one used on all WPC cabinets (i.e. US)?
                      If so, do you where I can purchase some? I wouldn't mind to buy a sheet myself.

                      Keep up the great work?
                      Thanks

                        Yes, it is 3/4 inch the same as original WPC cabs, 19mm in metric. It is classed as AA-A marine ply, and I order it through a local timber supplier. The size is uncommon so you wont find it stocked generally.

                              Time for the base, including a tongue fr the cab groove



                              A bit of a trial fit before getting the glue out (remembering to drill screw holes before starting with glue!);



                              Glued and screwed;





                              Installing the finer cab detail stuff. Borrowed a mate's Paslode nail gun, bloody awesome!



                              Ran out of angled timber for corners so gotta do a trip to Bunnings, coming along though!

                                The great work continues. At this pace you'll be finished in a few weeks.

                                A quick question out of curiosity...why didn't you cut the coin door, rear of cabinet vents, and speaker hole before assembly?
