Possibly, that has to be a good 6 or 7 years old now, from an old MAX Power car magazine. I really want to paint the walls and have it all fresh. Eventually.


#2449

I didn’t even notice that one… was trying to figure out who the kid in the poster behind the monitor was. :grimacing:


#2450

All good, I just feel obligated to suggest cleaning whenever someone posts something like that.

Mine isn’t very clean either though.

EDIT: I just realized how bad the cable management under my desk is. I’m going to have to deal with that today.


#2451

It is way better than mine. But i will get a recovery picture once it goes through it transformation.

Very nice.


#2454

Damn, that’s a nice setup. :smiley:


#2455

LOL this is my favourite bit though. lg 42" 1080p tv on the roof with an android box to power it…

Yes it meant getting a socket in the loft with a spur switch behind the tv to turn on the sockets.
Yea I had to re engineer a wall mount bracket and cross brace the roof beams.
Yeah it was totally worth it


#2456

I have wanted that for ages but am terrified of it killing me. As such I would love a projector to do this.


#2457

Check the mount once a month? Also, buy a really good mount.


#2458

normal large screen wall mount fitted upside down to the tv so bottom swings instead of the top. as a result you have to beef up the bracket with a few spots of weld here and there and weld on captive nuts where the lock screws go and run bolts.
3x2 timber run opposing to the roof beams inside the loft to spread the weight and mount the wall part of the bracket through it all with threaded rod cut to length.

Electrical done by a contractor to my specification

To be fair I can do pull ups on the frame and have done. the tv actually weighs about as much as my cat


#2459

A man after my own heart. I’ve wanted to do this, but it’s just too risky for me. Maybe one of those ultra-thin tvs. The wallpaper meme ones that Linus has been shilling?


#2460

Got a new desk so its now as clean as it will ever be. Still need to figure out cable management though.


#2461

Not bad. I kinda wish I could put my case on my desk, but I overestimated the desk size when ordering.


#2462

Too close to home, buddy…


#2463

One quick tidy, not a clean, later…


#2464

we used to have a “in the current state” thread like this back when people cleaned there battlestations up for this thread and they could schlep there but thats hell and gone multiple years ago


#2465

I MIGHT have an update to my mac desk soon… SOONTM

Never fucking mind this is going to my main desk this is TOO GOOD BRUH

Edit: Right so I’m too tired to make the changes right now, but I recently got an Apple Cinema Display (A1267, 1920X1200) and OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO IS IT GUD. I had to open it up and reseat the cables but ITS SO GUD OMG. I’m debating having it as the screen on my linux machine or putting it with my mac pro that it doesn’t match :stuck_out_tongue:


#2466

You’ll love this @sgtawesomesauce


#2467

Finally everything is tidy, the cable management is done and the battlestation is ready for some hard work :grinning:
