A quick creation from Fear's workshop. Got the idea while picking up some items at Home Depot. The curved 90 degree rebar caught my eye. All the bends save for two were done via caveman tech..... a torch and vise. This is a Fear Original, no google help here!

Looks more like a computer parts hanger.

Time to get some plexi glass and enclose it. Would hate to haul that thing around though

if you can get all the parts secure inside the rebar it'd be a great travel PC.... A bit heavy... but you can bash it against just about anything and the case will be fine.

KISS was the philosophy behind this case. It might get some additional supports for additional drives, but certainly no Plexiglas Wink
