Does Your Computer Smoke?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Well mine does. 

 

I decided to re-purpose a old PC I had.

I will be using the AMNPS and this is for cold smoking only. Total cost of build $4.00 for the grates for the shelves, everything else I already had.

 

 

Step 1

I gutted the case (saving the fan).

 

Step 2 

I lined the inside with Oak panels leaving room in the bottom left for air flow.

 

Step 3 I glued shelves in place

 

Step 4

Removed tape and made sure shelves were straight.

 

Step 5

Mounted fan (drilled many holes behind fan for air flow (cut DVD cover to fit spot to the right of the fan).

 

Step 6 

Taped and Primed Case.

 

Step 7 

Painted a nice hunter green (decals of Flames to come as soon as I print them)

 

Step 8

Cut some shelves from Grilling grates (extra support with wooded rods under grates).

 

Step 8 

Trial run (barley see smoke coming out of fan)

 

Smoke also coming out the bottom as well.

 

I cannot wait to try it. Pics to follow when I do.

Interesting idea though.

Now if you add a keyboard and mouse and a start button on the front and a wired up screen, surprise a neighbor or friend with that.

Yes, you are correct a deflector would be helpful.

Great Idea to recycle that old desk top.  You can easliy put variable speed control on that fan if you need it.
