I just used a 1/2 -20NF tap threaded in by hand (gently) and it cleaned the threads right up.
I will use some model paint touch up a few scuffs once I have it assembled in the case.

Overall I really like the look and can not say enough about the fantastic design, quality, aesthetics and value of these things. Well done Monsoon, well done.





Let me be the first to say you NAILED IT!

Very impressive work there indeed thumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gif

Even better because you took the time to show everyone how you did it.

Nice paint job. I would deff buy these monsoon products if they made white end caps...
Unfortunately, I would have to paint them white like you.

I can understand wanting to buy a product that is the color etc that you want, but given the existing options and modularity of this system Monsoon has out is it really a lot of effort to paint a few things? I don't think so...

- joiner (no ports)
- 50mm white tube
- joiner (two ports - one in-take, the other temp probe)
- 100mm green tube
- drain port round cap
- drain port base

Picture of dual D5 set up (Click to show)

I can't seem to see a joiner with no ports anywhere. BTW - I can put all of the above together (ex-no port joiner) for less than $100 at PPCS.

I had not considered a coupler without ports...not sure why as now that you mention it...seems sort of obvious. eek.gif

Not to be snarky, but when you can rotate the connection plate, I really don't see a need for a portless connection plate. Sure it would save us about $9(plugs). So I can see why one wasn't turned out. smile.gif

Really when I was going over it in the planning stage I have a vague memory of why I didn't do a zero port coupler...for the life of me I can't recall what it was now though. May just have been cost--the mold tooling is very expensive and we had to cut the number of parts down . I will try to add one at some point.

*EDIT*

I found my design notes and the consensus, (in house) for a coupler with no ports was what purpose would it really serve? The thinking being how often would someone for example connect two 100mm tubes with a zero port coupler when they could just use a single 200mm tube? Reservoirs over 300mm are very rare and we offer single tubes to 300mm...so a zero port coupler seemed like a part that would not sell enough to warrant the mold costs.

I was looking at that part as I wanted either two (or three) different colors in my glass ... or one clear, one frosted / reactor style.

As it turns out, I don't have the room for 3 x 50mm glass tubes so I have cut it down to 2 x 50mm ... and I want ports on that connection.

So ... now I don't have a need for it smile.gif.

Re just turning the res around and plugging one of the current ports ...

oh come on! You don't see the engine core in voyager with plugged ports do you???

Well I'd want a zero port coupler, agreed it's completely non-functional, it'd be all for looks tongue.gif On the plus side I can [carefully] drill new holes and hide the ports on the bottom side of the res and I'll get the look I want. So in the long run it's probably not worth the cost of molds heh

Agreed. More so if your reservoir is vertical, located in front of several windows and really has no place to hide unused ports.
post #439 of 4504
I don't disagree. Just had to prioritize. Would have loved to make a zero port coupler and a coupler that divided a single reservoir into two reservoirs, gone with 8 tension rods instead of 6, had an adjustable length coupler and several other items I had designed up but all of those things would have driven up the price.

It is like the white parts above. They look so cool I would love to do a run of white parts and I know eventually a hundred or two would sell...the issue is the 4,800 left over on the shelf. That is 4,800 of EACH part. I also know this is what would happen, 'Hey guys here are the white parts you asked for". "Awesome! When are you going to do red and blue?" blinksmiley.gif
