Besides the T-Shirt, in that video, Ben Heck butchers an LCD's power board to remove the AC/DC converter/transformer. I'm thinking that we could do the same thing to for our builds. So perhaps an external power supply isn't really necessary when searching for a suitable monitor for a cintiq build  Cheesy

tbh. he just broke a PCB in halve...

if your going to do this yourself you need to know what your doing.
basicly you could just take a pcb and snap it in 2. thats the easy part.

hard part is knowing where the power / grounding / ect are located and reconnect those properly.
still i just took a old 17 inch monitor, tore it down and took the hole print out.

extend the cables and put it in a new box Cool external power + lcd driver  Grin

let this be a warning tho, a pcb is hard to break like this guy did. id recommend cutting the pcb on both sides with a deep cut.

..... just watched the movie in totall..... did he use a blowtorch to remove a connector?Huh?
hes nuts and a genius at the same time.

 tho id prefer using old fasion linze wire ( for dutch it's linze but i mean the braided copper wire to suck tin off a pcb or connectors.
