  • Nice video! I think it would've been nice to secure the bottom edge of the panel with screws instead of soldering so you could replace or service the panel without de-soldering the brass

    chickbitchickbitGiorno fa
  • You could do a rivet and brass build for a steampunk feel. That would also mean you wouldn't need to solder anything else.

  • With the price of the LCD panel/Controller and the Brass you could of bought a touch USB-C/HDMI Monitor.

    Leland ClaytonLeland ClaytonGiorno fa
    • A similar external monitor costs around $350. Even if you had to buy the screen, which is not the assumption here, you'd pay $30-50 for a 15" touch panel. The control board is around $30, and another $50 or so for the brass channels and plate. You won't total $350 unless you *_gold plate_* it :D And you cant' buy a *brass* touch USB-C/HDMI monitor anyway. This isn't about making the cheapest monitor, it's about having the _coolest_ monitor and making it yourself.

  • Matt, at first I already love these stuff. And then I found your youtube channel and watched almost every video in the channel. You inspired me and now I'm deciding to make this with wood and aluminium for a medium thickness and intermediate level. I'm only 14 though, so I can't cut things by myself. I'll have to take it outside to let them cut the wood and the aluminium. But can you answer my question please? Can I know what thickness the brass board and U channels are? And what size of the U channel did you use? Does it need to be 2 or 3mm thick? And can you add some purchasing links for the pin connectors? I also want to know what screws you used for this project because I'm not familiar with screws. Thanks for your time, and I hope to watch more cool videos like this. :))

    • Most touchscreens meant for laptops have it integrated into the panel.

  • lol why brass? It's not so cheap and easy to find, and it's heavy. Why not plexiglass, pmma, acrylic sheet that every pc modder using easily. It's hard, tough easy cut, bend, glued, drill etc.And can be paint sprayed to look like everything. Even aluminium is better material for diy monitor, than brass...

  • if you want to avoid displacing brass you have already soldered together you should try putting wet napkins on the joints you don't want to melt, it works surprisingly well.

  • are there methods for creating monitors/ just a regular screen out of smaller screens? Like if you took apart a camera screen or a screen from game systems like a Nintendo ds? I don't think they make control boards for these types of screens so if there ARE ways to do this I'd really like to know. Thanks!

  • Beautiful build! The brass should be clearcoated after polishing so that it doesn't turn green/black over time. Unless that's the look you're after. I don't judge.
