******************************** UPDATE **************************************************************

Unfortunately, I won't be able to finish my mod until the deadline, so I had to cancel my entry for this year.

I wish good luck to all participants! hope to participate next year.

Regarding the project: my new deadline is february (20th anniversary of the studio).

See you!!!


Hi CM friends,

This mod is a special request from a very good friend Rogerio Avlis, owner of the PowerHouse Tattoo Studio, in Rio. He asked me to create something special for the 20th anniversary of the studio. I'm glad to create this mod, this studio is part of my history, I'm a co-founder and ex-member, besides the great friendship.

It's basically a super sized tattoo machine in scale of 4:1, with a watercooled mini-itx system inside. It will be a combination of carbon steel/aluminum profiles, plates, cylinders, etc...everything build from scratch.

I created a preliminary model in 3D using Sketchup just to have an idea of the dimensions and the interaction of the chassis and another structural parts with the PC components. It's not the final version, you can see that there's no place for hdd's yet, and the face plate is standard, probably I will create something different, so I have some decisions to make in some areas.

The 3D Sketches:

PS: The components and parts are for illustration purpose only.

Now I think I'm ok to start.

Firstly, I would like to thank you to visit my thread. A special thanks to dimitirsOS and thechoozen to spend time posting in my thread. Hey thechoosen, talented friend, thank you for the kind comment!

Let's show some pictures:


Hello my old friends, time to work:


I spent some time wondering how to manage the mobotray, so I found this little cheap baby:


With some work, it will be perfect for the project, I hope




It's for the support of the "Grip" (the fat cylinder which will keep the reservoir):

A 2" aluminum pipe with aluminum adapters:



Let's cut:




One side will be attached to the Chassis and on side to the Grip:
