How to build a Ethereum mining rig diy tutorial part 2: aluminum mining rig open-air frame / case, step by step tutorial!

Its been a while since part 1 was posted and finally with the help of my brother i was able to build the frame.

Building the Erethreum aluminum mining rig open-air frame is a very simple process with very easy-to-follow steps. The following guide explains each of the steps into detail as well as the appropriate measurements that will help you in building the frame successfully if followed accordingly.

This is how the frame will look (yay!!)

FRAME SPECIFICATIONS AND MEASUREMENTS

The frame’s width should be 16 inches (41cm); the length should be 16 inches (41cm) as well while the height should be 11 inches (30cm).

41cm (16inch) wide
41cm (16inch) long
30cm (11inch) tall

THE PARTS AND TOOLS TO BE USED IN THE BUILDING PROCESS

The following are important tools as well as parts that should be used in the effective construction of the frame;

Two angled aluminum bars which should be 118inches (3m) each.
Four wooden sticks with a length of 40inches (1m) each
Fifty self-drilling screws which help in drilling the angled aluminum bars easily, check this screenshot)
A saw for cutting
An automatic screwdriver
A set of pliers
A measuring tape
A marker

THE STEPS OF THE BUILDING PROCESS

The following are steps of the building process of the Aluminum mining rig frame. The steps have been briefly explained to guide you through the simple process.

Step 1: Cutting the wooden parts and the angled-aluminum

Aluminum:
The Aluminum should be cut into various lengths which include 8 pieces which should be 16 inches (41cm) long, 4 pieces that should be 11 inches (30cm) each and 2 pieces of 5 inches (13cm).

8x 41cm (16inch)
4x 28cm (11inch)
2x 13cm (5inch)

Wood:
The wooden sticks should be cut into 8 pieces of 16 inches (41cm) each.

Step 2: Attaching the angle-aluminum bars to the wooden sticks

Place two 16-inch wooden sticks into two 16-inch angled-aluminum bars and ensure that they fit perfectly. Drill screws at their ends to ensure that they are attached.

Step 3: adding aluminum bars to the new attachments

Screw two 16-inch angled aluminum bars from step one to the newly attached wooden sticks and aluminum from step two to at their ends to form a square whose two opposite have only the aluminum bars while the other two opposite sides have the aluminum bars attached to the wooden sticks.

Step 4: Making the frame’s height

Four 11-inch angled aluminum bars are to be used in this step. With your square as the base, screw the 4 aluminum bars at each corner in an upright position with their 90 degree angles facing inwards the square. Use enough screws to make the frame adequately stable

Step 5: making the top of the frame using aluminum bars

The frame’s top should also be a square as the base however without the wooden sticks. In this step, use four 16-inch aluminum bars to make the edges of the top square. Screw the vertices of the top square appropriately to make it firm. By this step, your frame should have the shape of a cuboid.

Step 6: Adding the wooden sticks

Add five 16-inch wooden sticks to the face of the cuboid with the aluminum bars and wooden sticks attached making them parallel to the wooden sticks at the edge. Screw them at equal intervals to make a rack of woods sticks at the edge.

Step 7: Adding the frames legs

Four legs which may be made of wood or thick density rubber, similar to those of couches and sofas, should be screwed at each of the bottom’s four corners for the stability of the frame when it is upright

Step 8: measure the frame and ensure it is intact

Use your tape measure to confirm the all round measurements of your final product. Ensure that all the screws are intact and your frame will be ready for use

CONCLUSION

This is the simple process of building an Aluminum mining rig open air frame. The entire process may take about 2 hours and it is recommended to find a friend or a brother to help especially if you are not a handy guy. You should ensure that you have all the necessary parts and tools for a successful construction of the frame.

I provide mining rig frames for purchase and my next versions will include great improvements and modifications. They will have and easy to build process or may ordered when they are already built.

    Looks great, think I’ll give it a go. Do you have any pictures of it in use? Where do the GPUs sit?

  • Anis Ben Ha

    2 pieces of 5 inches (13cm)….. Why ?? You dont use it ?? Thank you for this nice tuto!

  • Josip Gracan
