.it was surprisingly simple indeed! took a little 1.5 hours to tear the front of the monitor off (a little too aggressively in one corner), test fit the touch pad into the case and sand down the rim and cut a few tabs our of the way, put it together and load the cd. 1.5 hours from wrench to drawing... the mrs said "draw me something"
end result first:
nice box with wood reinforcement
set up to dremel
the honeywells are pretty impressive. I didn't realize the whole head can be released and turned as well as the arm.
also got the 15' video cable and a few other toys... I'll take a pic of my favorite when I get home
