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:

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.
