    Thanks, everyone!:clap:
    @Delta - Holy cr*p! That's awesome! It's a good thing I can't read the instructions. I want one now.
    @Oliver - I sent Kyle one after the podcast. The fear of how I would be portrayed if I left it to someone else drove me to it.:hehe:
    @djay - It's a 90 degree drill point mill bit. I specifically chose a bit that was the same size as the shank so it could be plunged past the cutting blades.

    I've started work on the reservoir. I lost track and never posted an update on the model...

    -This should do unless I come up with something better.

    I have nothing but the highest level of faith in your ability to pull this off. You are, after all, the Plexiglass King :p

    Cheaps is going to be quite strong after this build. This case is going to be heavy to the max!

    Thanks!:D
    @Azayles - I'm not the king. I'd like to have access to the plexiglas king. I'd set myself up as a plexiglas cardinal and have him send me plexiglas tribute...Maybe use my influence to gain an audience with the CNC tzar...:lol:
    @TotalGaos - I have the accordion bottle seated in one. The rest are camouflage for all the mounting and alignment holes. You know they will end up as a pencil holder someday, though.:hehe:
    @Djay - I have lots of moving equipment, and the base was set up to be a carpet sled.:naughty:

    Far to modest :p How about, undisputed Plexiglass Champion?
    The CNC King/Tzar/God has to be G69T, so I dunno, you might be able to talk to him lol.

    @bad Cancer - NO!:lol:
    @Perplekks - You were gone? That explains why my thread didn't get bumped (as much.:hehe:)

    This is a tiny update, but the time involved was insane. I kept getting hijacked. I even glued the billet to the MDF upside down.:duh:
    [​IMG]
    -First, I made this square for the barb area. I decided I don't need it now.
    [​IMG]
    -The billet is made out of scraps. I was worried that they wouldn't be glued together well enough. A well-placed air pocket in a reservoir wall = leakage.
    At some point the mill has been bumped. The scratch in the paper I use to zero the Z axis isn't even. I need to re-adjust the arm.:(
    [​IMG]
    -I was wondering at this point if I had gotten the cut too close to the edge.
    [​IMG]
    -This is one hour into the process. I realized I had slowed the feed rate down too much too. I had a meltdown in the bottom of the intake hole before I realized my mistake.:duh:
    [​IMG]
    -One hour, 45 minutes. Have I used the word 'grueling' yet?
    [​IMG]
    -Finally, the first part of the reservoir...is still not finished. I need to bore out the holes for the barbs, and tap them.
    [​IMG]
    -I love the fit I got on this. It stays in place with just friction.:D
    [​IMG]
    -It's a pity I couldn't get the tubes in the same material. They really stand out next to that green puck.

    Next up, I need a bunch more plastic- to make spacers and discs that will be part of the res core. For now...BED!

    Thanks again to my sponsors!:D

    "Does anyone here have a 1/4"BSPP(G1/4) pipe threading die?"

    Do you still need the die? I can check my lab to see if we have one laying around (we probably do).
