Hope he is working for free because you would never be able to machine one by hand and outperform the commercial blocks at their price. I would even says it is unlikely you could match or beat a commercial block no matter how much $or time you throw at it.

I have a small milling machine and tried myself. Took better part of a weekend to mill.

It was fun but it didn't keep up in performance. Generally a microchannel based fabricated with .3mm slitting saw (.3mm gap, .3mm fins is about the smallest you can do. I beleive they gang these up with a group of small slitting saws to make auick work of the machining. The cold plate channel array doesn'y need to be very deep (2-3 mm) on a 4-5mm thick plate is in the ball park. Then the top block(s) should feed around a 1mm wide nozzle plate to allow parallel flow and centered nozzle jet action. The rest is just flow collection, hold down, and barb ports.

would be fun and rewarding but don't expect it to outperfom the commecial blocks. They also have special features such as purposely bowed bases that dramatically improve TIM contact that takes special design in the block pieces. There is usually some sort of bowing step or square in the middle that bends th copper base plate a tiny amount etc.

He actually is going to do it for free I don't need it to out perform the brand ones I just want to set up a loop rather than air cooling and it would be cheaper than dishing out any money
