Ah ye of little faith.

I'll start a 'Failure Mode Poll' when it's testing time.

Personally , I think the electronics will fail first.



--------------------

The backplate/flare unions have cured :



------

Now It's time to deal with a fabrication flaw.



---------

As you can see the threads are not straight in one direction.

For the most part this is not an issue...it only matters on my inlet side , where I need to install a 'dissapation' device......I cant just allow an open pipe , the flow will have mechanical effects.....Hence the dissapation tube :




--------

Here's a top view :



------

Front view :



----------

You'll have to forgive the brutal bending/kinks in that tube......thats strictly a planning piece.........The final tube will be much sharper bends ,and will have holes in it like this :



---------

But the upstream sides will be bent in to provide 'diverters'.....

More pics right away

You know with all the computer savvy people on this site I can't imagine it being too difficult to set up a live feed of the first test run....

just a thought but I could see that being very cool (news stations included!)

Honestly can't wait for this, and hell, if I manage to get the time off work I'll be damned if I miss the starting of the thing!

And think, if it blows up, well, we might turn out like Dr. Manhattan. Who doesn't want to be a glowing naked guy?
