  • Are you sure brass is the right choice? Doesn't it oxidize in the air? Also I'm not even convinced about tin for soldering. However beautiful the final result

    Calvin ChenCalvin Chen9 napja
  • Pro tip: Don't use Aluminum or Aluminium. It doesn't solder like brass and the only way to get results like this is to heat it MUCH hotter, at least 800'f and use a brazing rod to 'weld' the pieces together. Considering how aluminum melts at 1100'f and the flame on most propane torches are around 2,000'f, it's very easy to over-heat any thin pieces of aluminum and melt them. Lets just say i heard this from a friend and i definitely didn't ruin my display frame yesterday by over-heating it. k? I'll be using thicker aluminum backing panel this time and it should braze fine.

  • What I'd have done additionally (just personal opinion tho) is link the legs together in the end, so you can be sure they are always at the same angle as each other compared to the monitor. Other than that this is a great DIY project and surely will be made by me in some time.

  • Do you need a battery to get the monitor working or can you just make it without and have it as a permanent/non portable monitor?

    Mirz23Mirz2313 napja
    • with the right powersource, you propably could get it to work as non-portable screen. But I think the addition of a battery like this is great as you still can wire it up to be stationary while you are in a place with wallsockets. It doesnt take away the possibility for stationary use, but allows use on the go where you might not have constant access to a powersource.

    • Build one. It might sound scary at first, but once you get the handg of it, and done your research on it, it is quite easy.

      Norok VokunNorok Vokun11 napja
  • I think it is quite nice to have a battery to it but since ultra thin battery banks are so much better insolated and modular and widely available, I think it is better to change the design to a battery holding rather than battery incorporating, so that it is more travel friendly and also the battery can be swaped instead of waiting to charge.

  • I can't help but notice the last brass section wasn't shown being soldered in.... I get the feeling this is because doing so would destroy the screen with the heat needed to do so. Lets just assume he epoxied the last bit on shall we lol

  • will this structural soldering work on aluminum too ? brass looks really super cute but i just looked the prices ,a 30cm piece cost 5-6 times more than a 3 Mts Al , or 10-20 times more than a 6 Mts of iron
