    All the alu components will be anodized. The base, you've seen in the picture, is not in contact with the water; on it I'll put the bottom in stainless steel (AISI 316L).

    can I ask a question? why is the stock or raw material so thick? is the thick alluminum material easier to work with?

    also, I am in AHHHH!!! with the workmanship this project has.

    I think the answer you're looking for is because the CNC machines that he is using to make these parts actually carve out the desired shape from it. No bending of the material, just like a wood carving or a marble statue.
    ... and just as beautiful as a marble statue too :rock:

    Mummy can you buy me some equipment like that man! Pleeeeaaassee.


    My hat goes off to you thats some very fine work. I wish my lathe and routers were at that level I'm still using manually controlled ones so it's a lot harder to do that level of work but I will try one day.

    Looking forward to the next update.

    Are you nuts?
    This kind of steel is very difficult to mill.You need machine tools made exactly for this type of material because it’s a hard work
    ANYWAY,nice work!

    It sure looks nice, but what did you actually modify with your own hands, everything done by machines, this would be no competition compared to some cases out there made mostly using tools instead of computers and cnc machines.

    nice work though,

    I'm not sure if the CNCs are CAD based in his case, but even if they are, it still takes a crapload of skill to know not only how to design exactly what you have in your head from scratch, but also to know how to use the machine! It's not as easy as it looks. Especially if they AREN'T CAD-based.

    The thickness of raw material depends exclusive from the object, I want obtain. Particularly I can tranquillize you about the thickness: a great or a small piece are worked out with the same machine.

    What you say is right; I THANK YOU for your compliments... a statue... (isn't too much)?

    bye bye, :thumb:

    Thanks everyone for interesting

    Those are the pictures of the 2nd fase of workship of AISI little bottom.

    In this fase will worked out two threaded holes (3/8" gas).

    Absolutely beautiful work.
    Makes me wish I had a CNC machine and the skill to use one.
