Hello BongoFish..

 its been a year since I built the first Wayback Drawing Machine  and still working awesome.. http://forum.bongofish.co.uk/index.php?topic=2323.0

 We use it Daily...

Everyone who uses it really freaks out on how responsive and fun it is to work on..  We use it for every thing and prefer to work on this drawing board then a normal standard computer setup .. (We have two iMacs sitting near by)... its a lot more comfortable and easier to work with no mouse..  its great for surfing, working making music and even vid games..

 So I had to build some MORE..hehe



Big Thank you to Bongofish...  Bernard and Crew..

The Wayback Drawing Machine.. version 2.0. This is the first of the 4 new Machines I am building... It is bit more weirder then the rest ..making it stand out a bit.. will have tons of strange stuff.. even pedal power.... I plan more of an industrial look with the others..





 Walter is busy working on the machine..

Ready for the magic to happen... installed the Wayback Drawing Machine.. Old Time Keyboard-Trackpad in a hidden drawer.. and a Mac Mini ( Pic below ) plus a hidden sound system.. and a bunch of other fun details.....and yes the pedal powers the light..



Just a basic weird little Mac Mini and keyboard setup will be installed in the drawer..

The building of the unit was so easy ,  from breaking open the monitor and wacom tablet in less 45 minutes I had the pen calibrated pretty close to go..it testing mode..and working great..  I guess after doing a few its no big deal really.. only tricky part is the LED hook  up and cable mod.. and the ISP and better resolution is awesome..

And also the build was easy..and very cheap...

I had this rare wood board I never seen or heard before in the wood pile for years and threw it on this machine.. Curly White Oak has an amazing figure and glow to it... you can't tell now but once its finish it should be wild.. Now its time to blow this one apart and get some finish on it...



Tons of fun hidden stuff will be on this one....table tilt 0 to 90 degrees..so you can watch vids on it...

As always you have produced some real works of art here, very beautiful indeed! I love the steampunk look of your builds, truly creative stuff and seriously inspiring.

Have each of the builds been put together with your original method of shielding? Are they all jitter free? What sort of tape have you used there for the shielding?

Thanks...Aerendraca

These are Jitter Free .... No Lag... No Skips  and Super responsive.. Nothing except when you get about 3/16 to the sides and it maybe just a pixel or two that you don't even notice.  its so close to the edge..

 The tape I use is basic  3M foil tape use on duct work.. super sticky.. holds great conforms great.. But I didn't notice it help with the shielding because it was jitter free from the start, But it also is great for the LEDs .. it takes the heat and distributes it.. I also added a piece of alum bar stock and stuck it directly on the LEDS..

 Ok heres the crazy part..the Wayback Drawing Machine as you see it complete only cost me 165 bucks total..(excluding the mac mini).. everything ..keyboard.. lights ...Hinges.... drawing machine .. screen and wacom.. ( I was lucky to buy 5 very trashed plastic broken big big wacoms for a buck a piece )   Thats a lot of bang for the buck I think..

 Thanks wood

Jitter is a strange thing...it very strange..

This thing is totally jitter free..until I started testing the new Odd build.  A basic USB typewriter all in one computer unit for the robotic Chatbot Monkeys.. Yes Is very strange.. lol...placed it nearby the drawing machine.. and low and behold a one to two pixel jitter..just from the monkey machine..  very strange.. moved it and the jitter is gone..

I need  to make a vid of the monkeys.. its very creepy..  they talk your typing .. tweets and other strange dealings..with full movement.. very creepy..   looking for some siri type hookup so they can answer your questions.. haha

 thanks Wood
