    Sandy Springs, GA here! I would like to meet up with some of you guys. Maybe we could trade service..... I own a Home Theater company and was looking to pick this up as a hobby. Anyone interested?

    i don't want to organize it ... i'm sick of organizing (i do with everything else in life)

    I made it to atlanta in 3 hours from here once. I crossed the entire state of alabama in less than 2 hours, and I stopped twice and got lost once

    maybe I'll have the heat issue and the voice activated door locks resolved by then

    My gallery is on my personal site ... http://gallery.jackshakes.com/carputer

    And here's my thread in the show off your project forum ... 2001 Jeep Cherokee Limited

    if anyone ever organizes a meet ... let's meet somewhere across the street from where a bunch of ricers have their meets so we can make fun of them

    Good stuff man...what is that part called that you are using to holster the dremel. Hate to sound like an azz, but I've just started working with many tools I've never used before. My loss for sure because I love my dremel. My install is going to require much precision and this looks like the way to go for me as far as that holster goes. I was thiking of using foam or carboard instead of mdf just because I thought I had no tools to cut the wood with and because I thought that if I bought a saw it wouldn't be precise enough. Check my site and if you have any ideas on helping I'd love to hear them. I also had some ideas on what I was going to do and wouldn't mind running them by you.

    Don't click any of the links unless you want to see pics of Janet Jackson nude. Just trying to make sure I don't offend anyone, but I put those in there so a friend of mine could see them.

    the attachment i was using was the 'Plunge Router Attachment' ... about $20 or $30 i think.

    It was ok ... and it will cut wood if you get some of the router bits for it. But it wasn't very accurate. With enough patience you could get it to be real accurate tho. Also one of my dremels burned up routing that wood so you need to go slow and take small cuts. it's a time consuming process.

    I ended up getting a guy i work with who has a wood shop to cut the piece (it was 3/4" x 3/4" trim wood by the way, not mdf) ... he used either a routing table or a table saw ... not sure, but it was real accurate.

    you could use foam (check out gork's M3 in the show off your proj forum) ... i wouldn't suggest cardboard ... and since you have that big kiosk pc i think mdf is probably the way to go for you. you could probably get by with a circular saw and a jig saw.

    I'm not an organizer and don't want to be, but I'll take the initiative to at least put a month out there and the city as well. I think the summer's a good time and no one responded so here goes. From this point everyone vote either July, August or other. If it's other provide which month. From there we can narrow it down. I think Atlanta is the mecca of GA and most of us will be in and around here so I also think this is a good spot. So for the location vote it'll be Atlanta or other and same rules apply, if other give option.

    My votes are July and Atlanta.

    Thanks for the advice shakes!
