Very cool! I especially like your method of keeping tolerances tight by running it in while tightening the cover down.

There has been a lot of "no high pressure" talk, but have you tested it to see how much pressure it can produce? If you put a finger over the end, does it spray fluid very far?

No, it doesn't have a lot of pressure. It has good volume, but if you block the flow with your finger, only a slight amount of pressure can be felt.
