Hey, wait a sec…if the center piece is symmetrical, it should be OK to flip either way. Why then is this face labeled “front”?
The trick is to examine the edge carefully…spot the bevel and arrange this piece so the frame parts want to lean “inward” — but will be held square by the front face. Done wrong, the frame pieces will splay outward and the corners won’t match up.
Not shown, the speaker grille can be similarly installed now, and the bottom edge of the frame with it.
The LED inside the button is already wired with a resistor for use up to 12 Volts. A 9 Volt battery (about $3) works fine. This connects to the two side terminals next to the switch.
LEDs have a specific polarity. You may need to switch battery terminals to get it to light.
So there you have it…a quick and inexpensive faux 9000-series computer. Not a perfect reproduction, but good enough to impress your geek friends, and it’s hard to argue at that cost.
You could bolt it to the front of your tower PC gaming rig and call it done. Or with a bit of extra effort and expense we can take this to the next level and add some sound effects…
