Iced Copper (Massive water cooling case) - Page 4

post #31 of 68
Thread Starter 
Thanks for all the support everybody. I am planning to go to the hardware store to get some clamps and some gloves for sweating tomorrow. Hopefully I will have some pictures up by Thursday.
Here is one final image before I start sweating:

I should also be ordering the acrylic soon. I am thinking that semi-transparent sheets will be the best.

Well I got done sooner than expected. I haven't tested for leaks yet, but I will soon and see if I can have it leak free for a couple days before I install a pump for a pressurized test.
Here are some pictures from the weld:
Getting used to the tools:



More pics in the process of welding the case:




Me looking terrified:

Next stop, remeasuring everything to build up a CAD model for TAP plastics to make me some sheets from.

How are you going to secure the shell without drilling into the frame?

I might suggest welding on some extra tabs with holes on them, that way you can bolt all the panels on.

Hopefully these will do the trick:

My welding skills are limited to welding together copper fittings with pipes.
