I'm still awed (spell?) by the size of your project... if you need anything, let me know.

Looks like blocks of C4 explosive (I wonder how many googling FBI agents will look at your build now that those words are in this thread)

I've done stage 1 of the intra-tank seal :

Here's the curing setup : This is to prevent a repeat of last time.......the air pump insures no acetic acid buildup.

I bought the closed-cell foam sheet for the gaps and backseals :

Well.......kinda hard to say exactly....I'm not counting.

If you wanted to do this entirely from scratch , you are probably looking at a cost of at least 5000$ , and thats not including the several thousand hours of labor , and not including the computer to go in it.

I actually had a bunch of the stuff already tho , and have been helped out by several people , so my cost to date is probably 3000$ to date.

I'm not sure if I'll get an update in today or not.....

Text update :

I did a bunch of preparation on various things today . Nothing photo worthy , but work nonetheless.....

- I should be doing the final I/O attachments to the solvent recovery tank this weekend.Basically I just cleaned everything , getting it ready for the silicone seal work.

-I did some rough sketches/thoughtpatterns about the motherboard mount.I should have some prelim stuff on this tomorrow.

wewt !

k......I did the final bits before siliconing the I/O ports on the solvent recovery tank.

First thing I had to do , was to finish the sizing on the 4" output.You can see from this picture what needs to be done ;



--------

The gaps between the sheet metal and the tank need to be hammered out , to provide a more precise gap for siliconing........The tools for this are a 'hammer-and-dolly' :



-----

I'm actually using the rectangular hammerhead as the 'dolly' or backplate and the round piece as the hammer.

The result : an awesome inverse-saddle joint :



---------

I finished the final grinding on the saddle unions and painted 'em :



---------

So at this point , I'm ready to do the final assembly/siliconing of the recovery tank.

This will be the first piece 100% complete.

Couple more days !
