yea that Kenwood system is pretty kickass. when my dad got it (like 30 years ago) it was really expensive and its still running strong only ever needed a new needle once.

SO i decided to make it a new post.

like i said before. we got a couple new tool kits in the mail today and one of them happened to be a Tap and Die set. after looking through it (who doesn't tare open new stuff right away?) i found THIS!

it happens to be the perfect tap for my compression fittings!

thanks again BriSleep!

i then decided to prototype my reservoir today seance i had some spare time. (working on this is more fun than watching paint dry which i would have been doing )

so i cut a length of my acrylic tube


then i decided i wanted two fitting on one end or the the other so it was time to see what kind of spacing i needed to see if this was even possible


then i wanted to see how difficult it would be to get 2 tubes on the fittings that close together


it was difficult but it IS possible


then i made some slugs out of a piece of Lexan we had laying around for the past couple weeks. i used a hack saw and a sander for this. but i didnt think to take any pictures of that process... sorry!

then could have come out better but overall im happy with it seance its just a test rig

before i used this stuff to glue the ends onto the tube


i drilled 2 holes in one slug and one in the other then taped them for fittings and finally glued them on the ends


as you can see they aren't quite centered but that's not a HUGE deal at this stage so i don't care.

and because i liked Charles's placement so much in his scout i decided to see how my res would fit in the same location.



overall im rather happy with how it turned out and i think the size is just about perfect as well.

i think im going to change a couple things before the final is made but that's what prototyping is for!


questions, comments, and suggestions are ALWAYS welcomed

-Striker36

P.S. what do you guys think of the photography? i tried playing with some settings to get the best shots i could with my limited time frame... AND i used a tripod!

The pictures look really great . None of the noise is there any more. How much clearance will that res have above it? Because you might have to use right angle fittings or something like that. But I'm sure you can work something out . That looks really good for a prototype.

i think ill have about an inch. im not 100% sure though as the case is in like 40 pieces and your right i will probably need a 90* fitting on the top.

im thinking that i may use the second hole in the end as a fill tube so i don't need to pull the whole thing apart to fill it.

and i might have a drain tube right after the Rad seance i think that would be the easy place to hide it

i think the fill-hole idea on the res is a great idea


have you considered adding "steps" or "waves" inside the tube to give more of an effect?

so im giving serous consideration to cutting the front of the frame (where the bezel attaches) apart so that its just the outer rails and the side mount points for the Bezel and the 5.25 inch cage. my thinking for this is it will allow me to attach a new sheet of galvanized steal (its what i have on hand) and cut that to hold a 2X120 mm rad and a couple drives and my fan controller.


what do you think? worth the effort?
