It does?

Mainly I did it because the pump will be front-and-center in a transparent case, A visible impeller has to be the best flow indicator ever, and because I wanted to.
It might push more water. I opened the intake up so it matched the hole in the top of the impeller.

Thanks again, but genius? Didn't you mean madness?
'Looking goof' -I like that typo.
...It was a typo, right?


-I went out and bought another set of permanent markers for the -blue- one. I should do something with the other 30 sharpies I've got now.
...anyway, I got the guts cleaned up enough I could glue the top on. The fumes got trapped inside and wrinkled the inside of the 1/4" layer chamber. I should set up a way to vent the fumes next time.

-This is the only pic you will get of the mill and drill session. I cut the edges smooth first, then bored the extra material down so I only had 1mm of extra to mill off. I finished up with regular mill passes for the last mm.
The hole for the inlet was hand turned in the press again.

-I tapped the inlet after I finished sanding with 240grit. My tap kit includes a 6-point 1/2" socket and a pvc connector to help me keep the tap level. I kept the grease minimal this time. I didn't want to get any inside where I wouldn't be able to get it out.

-I gave the inlet a light polish job with ol' electric Q-tip. -drill, stick, felt, novus polish.

-After sanding and buffing, I have CANDY.

-front

-back -notice how the reflections are freaking the inside shapes out?

-Bottom. I may need to re-surface this. I have a wicked scratch right where the o-ring seats.

-funky angle of the front

-side. Picasso would be pleased with the way this screws up the internal perspective.

So that part is mostly done. I need to glue the barbs in with silicone before I can test it. If I do this again I will need to make a stubby spade bit so I can flatten out where the exaust barb seats. I'd like to be able to use O-ring barbs someday. I also need to bore out my holes with something smaller than 1/2". Tribal said somewhere what the best bit size was for that. I need to go re-read his log.

I never would have tried something so crazy without the support of my sponsor. Thanks again, Danger Den!

Thanks everyone.

@EEL - Funky-plumbing-look Seuss? Yes. All it needs now is a name like 'snorzelphone'.

@CK - That was the response I was going for. -"That is the weirdest pump top I ever saw in my whole life."

@Barry - It was less hassle to buy a new 12-pack. I have a lot of cds to label anyway. The local Micheal's drains your soul, and there's cr*p for art supplies. It's all flowers and birthday party sh*t.

I think I scared off Kayinblack. My prices go up when I'm stuck with too many jobs. I'm having to farm stuff out this time too.
