Hi

I got this impossible idea to give my mother a juke media player in mountain style for Xmas and for her new home.

It will be done when its done  ;D

She and my dad sold their old house where i grew up  :hissy:

And now she has a nice smaller home. She always loves my multimedia home. So i thought i give her this to use.
My dad cant even handle a VCR, so he also must be able to start it and select a radio channel or album he likes.

If it wont finish before Xmas i will give it when the moving is done, should be 10 of January.

I read all the mountain juke topics and wrote down all your steps and combined the build with the best simple steps to get it done. (more copy past then actually writing :)

Specs

- ELO TOUCHSYSTEMS ET1545L-8UWC-1 15" LCD got it off eBay, more expensive in Europe then in the us :(
- AMD CPU Athlon X2 4550e 2.5GHZ 45W
- Conceptronic Remote Control for Windows Media Center
- 250 GB S-ATA II Harddisk Western Digital 7200 (16MB)
- SlimLine CD/DVD to IDE converter (slimline-ide-dvd)
- Emko 090FLS - 90W 220V - Passive PSU
- NEC DVD-RW Slimline Black AD-7633A LF (LabelFlash,Slot-in,Bulk)
- Jetway MB JNC62K Mini-ITX
- Kingston DIMM DDR2 800 CL5, 2 GB (1 x 2 GB)
- Creative X240 sound

As you can see i will implement a slot in DVD drive somewhere. 

Space is very important, i already saw a nice place in their home on a shelf for its resting place.
And i get a free piece of laminate the same color as their furnature and kitchen. Also the kitchen has some silver accents
So chrome t-molding is an option, but don't know for sure.

The piece of laminate gives me a very small juke. I drawn the juke out many times in google sketchup and i should fit with the 15 inch screen.

the juke will be rotatable and the speaker will be in the bottom section. The speaker set is a 2.1 audio set. it was a in discount and it sounded OK for that price. don't know if the sub will like it when i take it apart.

Here some pics..

The free piece of laminate i got


My balcony with a temporarily setup.


Here we go.


Costum jig..


After day one..


That's it for day one of the build

the bottom part is already cut to size and laminated now and drying.

Everything is ordered except for a volume knob..

Sounds cool Martijn. I'm thinking of  using a x240 set I have to replace the blown speaker in my mrs juke. Haven't hooked them up yet (bought for another project) - what do you listen to / what do they sound like? I noticed the satellites are not really dismantalable unless you sacrifice the back cover - what are you going to do about that or re you going to make them fit? (I can't do that)...

 :)

taking apart the satellites is normally a bad idea, if you remove them the quality goes bad quickly. then they sound like 1 euro shop speakers :P At least it think that because i have done it with other systems.

mine fit in the bottom section. the satellites are 6,5cm width so i based the bottom secton on that
bottom plate + speaker width + top plate = 8,1 cm

i wont use it but my parents will think it will sound great.

also i will hook it up to the stereo they have for when its disco time ;)

Looking good buddy!

I see you have the been bitten by the building bug good and propper then? :)

The cd/dvd drive is a good idea, is it just the slot loading type or tray loading?

slot in :) i think it will look great. i have some left over slot in light and parts for wii case modding. a case mod comes with 4 different slot lights and i will hook it up to the drive led somehow. also it has a nice dust cover in front so you wont see anything

i was hooked on this unit when mountain started. i always wanted to build one

worst part is collection nice items for it. in USA there are way more shops who sell everyting, from router guides and circle jig to laminate  :soapbox:

It seems that after a cab everyone goes for a jukebox! And boy are they all coming out well. Must be the building bug! If this is even half as good build quality as your cab your moms gonna be blown away. Cant believe how many lucky other halves/family members are getting a "project" for  Christmas. At least the recipetent of yours doesn't read the boards....Some of us have been working on our christmas projects for months in secret ;)

thnx :)

the clamps where only 75 cents for 2 pieces !! on discount!!
they work great

I need a aluminium or metal or best chrome volume knob !!!

impossible to find :(

i have been browsing the net for days now and nothing like the quality of a powermate
but as i wont use it, its to expensive to buy it and take it apart.


Oh my screen got in today !! :P so i can make it fit this weekend. Its much harder then i thought it would be.
strange little wires for x and y axes on top of the glass etc..

here is a picture of my current status.

Top piece is laminated and the front and back are removable for mounting.
The bottom box is build and laminated.

Not the best of pics because a lot of protective plastic everywhere.
but you get the idea.

holy crap what a day :)

worked 5 hours on it

still need to make pictures. but enjoying a bottle of wine with my girlfriend and ambient Xmas lights in my house

what i got done.

- back panel for input output
- front speaker frame
- monitor frame cut and also the marquee

this was the harderst part i am sure.

it all went great and am very pleased with the progress...

still need to find a volume knob and rotating device

i found this , would this work OK without the top unit wobbling around when the touchscreen is pressed



its with ballbearing and can be screwed on top and bottom.

back to the red wine  :cheers:

I found a free rotating device :) i will get it tomorrow.

i cant continue my work now because i am waiting for the plexi to arrive.
the one they send was transparent :( and i need black !

here some pics

The front frame, the volume knob part is gone, i will add this part a little later.



Speaker holes


Bottom of the jukebox, with openings for the fan and woofer


Top of the speaker box, with opening for wires and airflow, ready and waiting for the ballbearing turning device.



that's it for now.

Now i need to wait for my plexi to arrive, then i can make the monitor flush with it and then it will come together quickly

Yeah they are great and small

here are some pics of the plexi cutted and 45 degree bevel.

Also the DVD slot is cut, this was hard because i don't have router cutters with bearing that fit inside the slot for 45 degree bevel.

Front plexi cut and beveled


2 holes for 2 buttons and the DVD slot


DVD slot 45 degree beveled :)


i am happy it worked out in one go..

Newbie question - what are you using to cut the plexi? And also, what do you use to do the bevel? Looking great so far, by the way!

Small update with dark pictures    :P

Started on polishing the plexi, its going OK. still not shiny enough
i have 600,1000,1600,2000 grid and polish wax

Do i need to make the sandingpaper wet?



I also got the monitor fitted.







That's all for now.

Looking good Martijn  :)

I only went up to 1200 grit when polishing (320>600>800>1200). It looks like you have a good even finish with no scratches but obvioulsy its not glossy shiny. I imagine that the polishing wax you are using isn't quite doing the job. I got a Novus polishing kit sent over from the US and its really does work well. I had similar results to you after polishing up to 1200 grit but as soon as you use the first polishing solution in the Novus kit the shine really appears which is then enhanced by the second solution.

[This] is the kit I bought from US eBay. They also do a [smaller] kit too.

What router bit did you use to do the bevel on the CD slot?

hi and thank you for the tip.

Ill search for this product. or i didnt use the wax properly, ill test some more tonight.

i placed the router with 2 pieces of wood on both sides so i could slide left and right without moving up or down.

then cut the slot with the smallest



 then use this bit for the bevel. it worked out great

I didn't think you would be able to get a roundover or chamfer bit with a bearing small enough to follow the profile of the slot but I didnt realise you did it with a plain chamfer bit. I would never have though of that, I guess you just set the chamfer bit central to the middle of the slot? Good job  :applaud:

I found my Novus at the local Harley shop for $20, which was less then I could order it with shipping online.

I used a Micro-Mesh Pen Sanding Kit to do the non rough sanding, and it worked great.  it was shiny before I got to the Novus.  I did wet sanding.

Thanks Nvts ill look into that too.

Here some pics of some hardware modding :) Its a test setup, nothing permanent, thats why the claw is there

I got a spare wii case mod what comes with 4 different slot in DVD light with black curtens material so you wont see a hole for the DVD slot.



The voltage was the same of the wii console and the DVD drive led, so installing was a breeze.



When the drive is busy the light turns on, during boot (post) it is on and then turns off its pretty cool.

when its accessing the drive it doesn't flash on / off fast, it just stays on until its done accessing the drive





My mom likes red and has red accents in her home, that way i choose red for her.

Martijn,
Looks very good. What are the round openings on the sides of the DVD drive for, just curious. Is Nintendo Wii mode plugs into the DVD drive or did you just solder in wires for the LED light?

As an FYI for everyone, Novus is available from any on-line pinball parts store, it is often used for polishing a play field. My favorite is www.pinballlife.com, but there are many more.

Regards

using displex really shined things up. its hard to make a good picture. the beveled edges now match the material  :cheers:

Looks great! I can vouch for that displex stuff too, worked great to get the scratches off of my cell phone display.

unfortunately my girlfriend broke her ankle. so i need to take care of the children more now until she is up again.

this project is down for the moment  :-[

but gives me more time to think things out and maybe some great new ideas :)

Done some things to the juke

polished everything with novus 1 2 and 3  ;D



The drive led has been mounted



Stole Daoldman idea about a led behind the volume knob.

the idea is not finished yet, and the volume knob isn't positioned for its final resting place.

the knob will be more close to the plexi so less light bleeding.

the light you see is more intense on the pictures then in real time.







That's it for now
