I can already hear the cries of "over engineered!"
 :naughty:

Who would do such a thing???  :headscratch:  :stir:

My coolant trap will be glorious!   It will support an adults weight and cope with 40 ltrs/min being flung about. It will also auto adjust based on drip rate, provide an audible alarm on over flow and make me coffee when I'm starting to fade.

Ah but you have a non standard mounting system that is incompatible with the hyper drip entrapment system.    :lolb:

Is the hyper drip the builder?  :lolb:

Given what my nose is doing this evening quite likely.

Having designed up the idea for a rear catchment system to catch the errant drips here are some pics of the idea pre welding.  You will see a small welding magnet in the pics.  This is really just holding things in place with its weight since the parts are made from 50x50mm ali angle.

Got the parts welded and all cleaned up.   Plan for the weekend is to get things all mounted up.

Hi James

"My coolant trap will be glorious!   It will support an adults weight and cope with 40 ltrs/min being flung about. It will also auto adjust based on drip rate, provide an audible alarm on over flow and make me coffee when I'm starting to fade. "

Well it looks like it's conforming to most of the design brief!  :lolb:

Cheers Kerrin
 
Get excited and make something!

12v bilge pump to replace the weak fountain pump is on the way.  This will improve the head pressure and make the pump less susceptible to clogging with crud.

It also reduces the voltage exposure to 12v compared to 240v.

I'm also looking at the possibility of a fabricated coolant tank that helps to separate any metal and tramp oil caught by the coolant.

It's started - I managed to get motivated to started the custom coolant tank.  Initial tacking up of part tonight.  More to follow this week.





Some of my initial cuts are not brilliant so I will need to do some trimming on the table saw before getting too far.

Cheers,

The coolant tank for the bandsaw continues ...

The weir welded in before other sides are put on.


Side panel in which the connection fitting will be welded.  This supports the tube connections between pump and the coolant line external to the tank.




Just showing my attempt at welding around the fitting.  Still getting more frosting from cleaning action than I think is supposed to happen.


Top view looking into the tanl with the pump in the position it will ultimately be installed in.


Bit of an overview of the tank to date.

Next major activity is to fully weld all the seams up.

To supprt that process I needed a means to support my hand over a ~30cm welding seam at a really ticky height.  So taking inspiration from what I have seen on Welding Tips and Tricks I found some offcut 35mm square tubing, got some 20mm ID (27mm OD) galvanized pipe and a flange fitting from Bunnings and hacked this up. Key parts are:
- 1200mm length of 20mm galv pipe, cut that in half
- 20mm galv flange fitting, acts as the base
- off cut 35mm SHS
- M8 cap screws and nuts







Cheers,
J.

Water leak testing underway ...



After a couple of hours still bone dry on all seams.

Taking the tank further with lid and the start of the piping, just to show things are still slowing moving forward while being interupted by work committments.
