    Indeed and using only aluminium in a setup is oke but use it with copper or nickel you get some problems.

    Thanks lucasrubini. :D

    Update 16.

    First work today was sanding the oak top and give it another layer of bootslak.

    [​IMG]

    Then it was time to continue with the reservoirs.The next pieces im gonna make from oak again.

    [​IMG]

    First i made 18 little disks to use as spacers.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    18 stainless steel plates with 3 holes in them.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then i made 2 stainless steel axes with M8 thread.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Welding the axes on 2 plates and sand them.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    All parts are done so time to mount them together.

    This is how the reservoirs look.

    The reservoirs are not finisht yet.I have to paint the spacers with bootslak and make some feet for the reservoirs.

    Adding the wood was a nice touch, it gave the desk some life.

    It looks great :thumb:


    Edit: The quality of your welds aren't to bad either, actually they look flawless.

    Damn... Looking really good! :thumb:

    Personally I'd tack the plates in place at the bottom, and remove the wooden spacers, but that's just me! :)

    Damn you do some great reservoirs, the metalwork on the desk is stunning and the wooden top is class, will you varnish or wax the spacers to bring out the grain on those reservoirs ? The quality of work on this build is on another level :)

    The combination of Stainless Steel and wood is just stunning. I love everything about those reservoirs, and the rest of the desk is awesome as well.

    OMG dude, this is AMAZING.

    This time I HAD to register here. I'm following the projects here a long time ago, but this project in particular made me to register just to comment:

    You got MAD welding skills, dude. PERFECT work w/ metals. I almost couldn't believe when you made the welding finish.

    I'm majoring in mechanical engineering and believe me, I'm not used to see constantly THAT quality of work. You're an exception, dude.

    Congratulations! :thumb:
