Introduction:

 

About 11 years ago I saw a vintage Oscilloscope in a flea market and I immediately fell in love with the design.

I purchased one soon after, with the intent to build a mod, and it sat in my garage for over a decade. Last year this project finally came to life!

MASTERLIQUID ML120L RGB TUF GAMING EDITION
JETFLO 120
ATX 24 PIN 90° ADAPTER


QUICK FIRE TK

These are pictures of the Oscilloscope, fully functional, unmodded, the day I brought it up from the garage to start planning the mod.

As I started to plan the mod, I decided that I wanted to have a wood base for the main housing. After spending some time at a home building store, I found the wood that would eventually be made into the base for the mod. The plan was to eventually make the box look weathered and old, which I achieved by using 2 different colors of Wood Stain and sanding in between coats.

I had never built anything out of wood before, so I watched a few videos online on how to make a box, purchased a few tools and I was off!

The base will be attached to the top by using steel pipes. I set the pipes and main housing on top of the new wood box to mark where all of the holes needed to be cut, as I will have wiring inside the pipes connecting I/O ports on the wood base.

I had also never stained wood before, so again I watched a video online on how to stain wood and on how to achieve a distressed look with new pine. I utilized a multi-stain method, using Kona Stain, and Sunbleached Stain, sanding between the layers of different color stain.

Once the Wood Stain dried, the hardware was then added to the wood base, including the front I/O Ports, which included a se of VR Ports (HDMI + USB 3.0) and a set of USB 3.0 ports as well.

I made a custom I/O Panel for the rear of the wood base, which included ports for AC Power, Ethernet, Video, and 3 sets of 2 USB Ports (6 total).

This log is a little bit out of order, but I placed it here because it relates to the wood base. I wanted to add some sort of metal badge/plaque to the wood base, and as I was opening up a drink with my NVIDIA Bottle Opener, I had the idea to cut it and mount it on the base. So I bid farewell to it, thanked it for its service, and got out the rotary cutter.

The power supply is by far one of my favorite parts of this mod. I purchased an old residential power switch housing at an estate sale with the intent of using it as the power supply shroud for my mod. Inside it will house an SFX 650W Power Supply. The holes were cut for the vent, power switch, and the fan intake. Rubber u-channel molding was used to make the edges look cleaner and more professional.
