We went to a bunch of garage sales today...and wasn't I surprised to see this:
Yup, mini metal lathe! For $40, I couldn't resist. It'll do just fine for small projects, and for helping me learn lathe basics.
Back to tank stuff...
I think the sump is pretty much done except for:
Prep the top for drain pipes/returns
Source the coarse filter
Return hard line plumbing
These are the tops from this tank's life as a 'normal' fish tank.
Secret weapon - rocks!
No float for you!
Drip trays on the new rests
I drilled the drip holes out one larger size today, the new rests are working out great. It's now running in a loop, will let it go for a few days, see how the drip holes work out.
