And it begins! biggrin.gif

Remember this? That was the project of the day:)

First, i had to mill down a 10 mm alu plate, since i did not have any 5 mm lol! Then bolting them together, and went to war with the mill.

1.jpg

As you can see, i just printed out the cad drawing, and used that as reference.

2.jpg

And on it went. Luckily this mill got "autopilot" so that I can just set it to move at a certain speed, and comfortably take my pictures.

3.jpg

For the detailed parts, I had to use a smaller bit, and then just fill the edges.

4.jpg

Finished middle pieces. The one on the right have been glasblasted, but will need to have another go.

5.jpg

And this is how they mount on the pumps.

6.jpg

And how they mount on the radiator! I will put some rubber pieces under each end to dampen vibrations. Once all of this is mounted I should have a great pump setup:D

7.jpg

And the finished result. Only need to weld it, and then grind it down again, give it another go in the sandblaster and maybe paint it, yet to be decided:D

I must apologize for the lack of updates, but exams are coming up at school, and there is quite a few things to do smile.gif

Well, as the previous alu stands failed duo to not being "weldable" I decided to make some of 6 mm steel! This will provide better rigity, and I made them look better this time!

1.jpg
A picture of the failed alu welds.

2.jpg
Used the old stands as reference, and then bolted them together.

3.jpg
These are the new ones, with the old alu one to the left.

4.jpg
And again, new versus old.

I am going to make the support rods tomorrow, and hopefully get it welded too! Lets hope second time is the charm lol.

And welding and filling done! After my .cad exam I picked this up from the workshop. A buddy had welded it in the meantime, and I went straight home and put the pumps on:D

1.jpg
How it looks in its full scale, mounted on the radiator. Did I mention that it is sturdy as hell!?

2.jpg
A close up of the milling. I also countersunk the screw holes for good looks:)

3.jpg
Had to fill about 2 mm off the Bitspower crystal link to get it to fit, but now its like a glove!

4.jpg
Cant decide what color I am going to paint it, but I think that white might be the choice!

Hope you like the end result here:) Now its on to the top!

Too big? You'd be suprised how quickly you run out of room with a dual loop in a rig. And the M8 is the smallest case that Case Labs make wink.gif
