With all the alu work that you do, you REALLY need a CNC Router.

Some good information here.

Essentially, if you put copper and aluminum together, you will dissolve the aluminum. This doesn't take into account the reactivity of the water that you put in, however. Yes, it will be 'pure' water initially, but as soon as it touches anything it will start sucking up ions, making it more and more conductive.


Edit: A much easier to read table.

Hi Attila very nice redo. Maybe some grooves or channels around the block would fit with your build

A big machine would be great. But this would have it's down side, which I wont go into here.

I've seen lots of those charts but not the two you've linked to here. The second one is particularly helpful. It seems, if I'm reading it right, that copper is a big , but brass is within acceptable limits. This could mean that the radiator can stay.

Thanks mate.

Thanks Craig. Yes there is quite a lot of surplus material to get rid of. See below.

I had enough time (made enough ) to finish the channels and water feeds today.

Drilling the holes first made routing much easier.





Some of you may not know what I'm using to cut the channels. I'ts a Ryobi trimmer that takes 1/4 inch bits. With a 10 mm carbide bit.





Dropping down vertical is a hit and miss affair so there are some rough spots, but I'm happy with the result.



Then the feeds are drilled (10 mm).





Now the shaded area is all useless material, so I may as well try some decoration on the way to removing it. If it works it can stay, if not it'll go.

Rough spots? Sure...

Daaaang! I never built up the nerve to hand rout aluminum. any problems with it trying to grab?
I pretty sure you removed the excess already, but some perpendicular fins sawed into that area would be cool.
-Just promise us you will mount the whole thing in a jig to do it...

Yeah, it looks like Attila went about using the press drill and subsequently the router WITHOUT securing the piece in a jig - madness. Think about it breaking your fingers if not secured properly.

Thanks a lot guys.

The router is hand held (very firmly with both hands). I haven't had any problems with it wanting to do it's own thing. The main problem is lowering the bit into the work, very hard to get it to go into the cut without taking a chunk out of the side.
My drill press is set up 'just so'. This means, basically, that anytime the drill gets stuck in the work, the belts just 'slip' and I can turn off the drill and extricate the work piece from the drill bit. So, yes, I do hold most things with my left hand while drilling. As with anything to do with power tools., ALWAYS give 100 percent of your attention to the job at hand.

I do not recommend doing anything as described above.

@ Obsidian Rift., The drill press I bought about a year ago is a Chinese generic model made for a zillion different companies that just put thier name on the outside. You will be able to buy one like this or similar, anywhere in the world. This one cost me about $370 but I just received a catalogue in the mail, and this model is on sale for $280. Considering the good quality and the amount of materials and work that has gone into this, these prices are amazing. This drill press is a floor standing model, is big, heavy and well made. Here are some pic's.

This is some fantastic work. I wish I had the tools that you do in order to do some mods. Sadly, I must just use my dremel at the moment.
