Another aluminum CNC milled Bus Pirate case

Posted on Thursday, June 21st, 2012 in Bus Pirate, cases by DP

A few days ago we wrote about Mmattice’s milled aluminum case, here’s another design, a CNC milled case from Epninety.

Drawn in CamBam, and cut on a CNC converted Taig micromill with Mach3.

I didn’t have any engraving tools, so abused a cheap 45degree spot drill instead.

No screws holding the case together, there is a step machined in the mating surfaces, which is an interference fit. A smear of RTV adhesive is added to make sure it stays put.

Check out more pictures of the case below.

The Bus Pirate is a hacking multi-tool that can talk to many common electronic chips.

 

See our case video from a few weeks ago, and even more awesome DIY cases from Bus Pirate fans.

Get an assembled Bus Pirate for $30, including world-wide shipping. Also available from our friendly distributors.

Via the forum.
