If you were to build a radiator.... - Page 2

post #11 of 92
You can make a radiator with hand tools, but it's going to be crap and inefficient because you just aren't going to get the surface area of something that's manufactured by machine. You just aren't going to make a radiator with hand tools that will compete with something you can just buy. I don't care what you accomplish. It won't change the fact that the end result will be crappy, and that the whole thing is retarded and a complete waste of time and money. The only proving wrong of me you'll do is in your own mind, because it's only your own standards you are having to meet.

Why you dont take a car rad and build something similar. Or mod the car's rad?

Am wondering if copper wire wrapped around a copper pipe would work, might be easier than fins, sort of like this (excuse my crappy gimp skills)
Untitled-3.jpg

You could maybe hold in place with solder and alternate each wire to a different side of the pipe.

i got this one from local electronics shop, try at
radioshack or something like that, as i see radioshack has with silver
http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062725
but ih has too low concentration of silver so rad soldering
this what i found

and also this

I'll be interested to see how this turns out. The only thing that would even possibly work that I could personally do would be getting a large sheet of copper and bending it many times to make something resembling a crude fin array, then cutting holes just big enough to fit the pipe through but small enough so the fin array touches the pipe. Not entirely sure how well this would work but it would be interesting. biggrin.gif

Do they make car rads small enough to fit into a 5.25" bay? If the do that's cool. But I'm kinda itching to build one from scratch biggrin.gif

Not a bad idea, I didn't think of this. I'll add this to my growing list of "build and test" biggrin.gif

I have a few thoughts, I'm going to try a couple of angles and experiments...we'll see which method works!

As I recall, there were several favorite heater cores (not the main radiators, but the secondary radiators used to heat your core) that worked perfectly with 120mm fans. Since 120mm fans easily fit in 5.25" drive bays, there's a chance those would fit as well.

Good luck with your endeavor. You should make one with and one without dimples in the tubing, to see if there's really any effect as some manufacturers claim they do.

We are going backwards with all of these hack artists and society only concerned about people being happy instead of doing the right thing and trying to actually amount to something in life. What they are pushing is selfish happiness, not true happiness and actually doing something for anyone but one's self. Now if you want to be a hypocrite turd and trash this guy's thread just as much as I am, do so by replying here, or you can just take this to PM and argue with me that way.

im still a little curious as to what special machinery is required for making a rad, if your not mass producing and dont mind putting the time in then you could easily make a great looking and effective rad. all you need are fins and some coppper pipes and then wrap the edges in sheet metal so you dont see the ends. Heck you can even make a copper/brass res at the end that feeds into half the tubes, then have it sent back up on the other side of the res (2 pass rad). built in and made of / wrapped in pretty sheet metal
