    Thanks. :D You caught me with no progress to show. :lol: I made a 2nd reservoir end, but it looks like the first, so not much to look at.

    @Christian - I haven't really started yet. :lol:
    -Hey, kids. Remember how I said the bad tolerances would bite me in the butt?
    ...Yeah.

    Those are some really bad tolerances. I may be breaking this up and trying again. For now, I'm tweaking the reservoir model and focusing on that. I also have to figure out how to level the tube cut.
    I apologize for taking baby steps here, but there's so many places I can screw up when just starting.

    @arduum - You joke, but getting the tile saw level to cut the tube involved jamming wood blocks under the motor. :lol: The 2 degree tilt from it being old and heavy would have made the manifold on top about a half inch low in the back of the case.
    I'm probably still rocking a half a degree in the tube, so I have to find the 'high' side. I'm having to measure and correct the computer model as I build. Everything hinges on the tube dimensions, which was hand cut. :(

    -Then there's the shitty .003 out of spec bits to deal with...
