This morning I'll be sleeving the Sentry this Silverstone FP34S Premium 3.5inch Bay Card Reader & Front I/O combo module, David chose this model mainly for it's card reader and headphone jack. It's from performance-pcs here It will be mounted in the new top panel. I chose Bulgin's "Orange Dot" for the Main Power button from performance-pcs, here





The Sentry's display screen will be mounted in the top bezel opening. A 22mm Bulgin "Orange Dot" vandal resistant switch will be the Power button.

Tonight we'll be milling the aluminum panels and inlay plate for the side panel with the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) design, which will be slightly larger than whats show in this screenshot.



The top cover will have a compartment...hmm for what?



The compartment lid consists of one sheet of 1/8" thick aluminum and 1/8" Opaque red cast acrylic

Last night the larger aluminum side panel plates took two hours apiece to mill. They exceed the travel space of the mill, so they had to be re-positioned for each side.







Made a temporary Tapping block as guide when manual tapping blind screw holes on backside of the larger aluminum panel.



Blind hole tapped for 8/32 machine screw

Worked on the side panel pre-assembly today> The inner wall of the steel panel needs to be painted Black.
