It is actually the sort of thing I first had in mind. The ones I got from McMaster weren't right. One was way too big and the other was a similar to the Radio Shack one but was more of an opaque red that aesthetically would have been strange. Good luck with the mod. The addition of the liquid level switch and wires makes for a bit of a hassle if you want to completely remove the reservoir...you would have to unscrew the top metal plate and pull the terminal connects off, But I figure that I won't have to do it more than once every few months.
As for the weather here, it seems like Spring has finally sprung. Going to be 15c today! Just in time, my wife always gets homesick for New Zealand every Jan-March.
Another dremel use tip, cut the hole from the inside of the case, that way if it gets away from you or the chuck screw hits the metal, it's inside the case. Richard
Thanks Richard for the advice, never even thought about doing it that way. The most useful tool for me in making these mods was my set of calipers. I even used the tip of the calipers to making little scratches to outline the cuts I was making. They would be extremely useful in making all the marks on the inside. The only thing you might need in order to do this particular mod with a dremel on the inside is a right angle attachment because the sides of the machine might impede certain cuts.
30 seconds before my screw up that made me put the logo back on, I even looked at my "tee" bracket placement and I thought, "I'll be o.k." WRONG! I probably would have taken my time had it not been for my daughter in the other room, wondering if she was now using her paints on the wall instead of her easel. Anybody considering using the dremel option should be aware that if it is going to get away from you, it will drag to the RIGHT. I also put some really thick threaded packing tape down around work areas, especially where the chuck might hit. Kaelin
