Building My Own "Tube Style" Res. (New Design Build Pics Posted)

post #1 of 104
Thread Starter 
I wanted a tube style res for my Desk Mod. But the EK ones are everywhere and the T-Virus style ones are becoming more prevalent as well. So I went ahead and cooked up a design that goes along well with the design of my project as a whole.
Original sketchup designs. (Click to show)
700

700

700

653

Top and bottom will be machined out of acetal. BitsPower fittings. Heat bent tubes.

Current Status... Testing



Here is a video demonstrating the flow using the Mayhem's dye that is going into the final build.




Improved Design...

Got to machining the acetal this afternoon. Now I don't own a cool ass mill or anything. Im doing all this with my wod shop, Table saw, Drill press and a plunge router. (This came back to bite me today. See last pic.) And some outside acquired skills from over the years.

Started with two 3/4"blocks.
Photobucket

2.5x2.5" squares
Photobucket

Template for the cavity.
Photobucket

Photobucket

Threading one block, countersinking the other for the Cap screws that will hold the two halves together.
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket

Tapped G1/4" Holes for the tubes and the fill hole.
Photobucket

So I got the machining done on the top section. Just need to chamfer the edges ans fine sand all the tooling marks off the surfaces.
Photobucket

Had a setback when i went to do the cavity on the other half of the bottom... The damn router bit wasnt tightened down enough and it walked its way out. Straight through the whole block... mad.gif
Photobucket

So I have to get another chunk of acetal... Gonna stop me for a couple days. I guess ill work on the tubes in the mean time. thumb.gif

Add me to that list! Also, I just wanted to know, wouldn't it be better if you made two holes on top as well so you could use one as a fillport instead of having to use a t-fitting?

Possibility.... biggrin.gif

And @ aadk. It is going to have the inlet and the outlet on the bottom. So i only need one hole for filling on the top. Its pretty much custom made to my build. No need for a tee fitting or anything... Just a plug when I'm done filling it.

Oh I get it. Sorry, didn't fully understand the concept when I first saw it. I thought the bottom would be an outlet and a drain. Good job though, can't wait to see your desk mod move on as well thumb.gif

Moving on with what I can till my new acetal gets here...

Bent up the tubes!!!

FIRE!!!!!!!!!! FIRE!!!!!!!!! biggrin.gif

Photobucket

Photobucket

The black is from running the tube through a sooty flame to temper the pyrex.
Photobucket

The template im using to make sure they are bent the same way so the twisted design will work.
Photobucket

All 4 bent up.
Photobucket

And cleaned up.
Photobucket


Just need to cut them to length and clean up the ends. thumb.gif
