So one of these Days I'm going to check in on this Thread and DK is going to have built a MegaMechaGargant and it will Fire missiles filled with Shrimp into peoples homes, and then Fire off tractor beams to reclaim the unused missile portions and the homeowners wallet as well.

Lady you, while truly an inspiration in DIY, are also a prime candidate for a trip to the loony bin, which you will then turn into a shrimp farm that produces more babies in a month than The Asian subcontinent.

In the end, DK as always, Please keep us hooked on DIY design, theory and insanity.

We begin, making our template from the re-purposed Lexan tank lid. Thank goodness DK has a good chop saw, 'cause doing that manually in quarter inch lexan would have been tedious. With a chop saw... piece o' cake, if done carefully. DK just loves "her" chop saw...

We interrupt Shrimpzone posts for DK's trip down humility lane: the awfulest gallery of today's T-Rex crop imaginable. Those buggers zip around! I want to pull my hair out trying to photograph them!

And of course, of about a hundred shots, the ONLY one in focus is nearly identical to a previous favorite shrimp of mine, except honest I just took this.

And, of course, I DID clean my glass, but apparently missed the BOTTOM QUARTER INCH which is where all the shrimp are when they are up close to the glass for photos.

Sigh. Y'all hafta use yer imagination to "see" how beautiful they are!

Here's the previous favorite shrimp of mine. I guess they really don't look identical. This is what I LOVE about broke-blacks. They are each unique, like a gypsy vanner horse.

So I vote that we start pooling Money, and have DK come by and Wonka us all some Shrimporiums of our very own? I know If I had 5 grand, I'd be going DIY and leaning on this lady for all the knowledge I could Glean before I spent a penny on something I didn't need, or even really want.

Thanks again for the inspiration DK, and the Laughs, Clawfoot.

And now, back to our regularly scheduled program:

Shrimpzone project 05:

So next, DK does some custom fitting of her lexan template, using a file and elbow grease.

Lexan is a good material for her purpose because it is heat and impact resistant, doesn't tend to distort, and is quite strong and durable. Plus, it was in her bins, ready for re-purposing.

The louvers, DK selected because of geometry. With them, she can use one or both, and they are square shaped, maximizing air flow per perimeter, minimizing the likelihood of whistling. She chose rather small, because she's coming right off the aorta, and there will be a lot of thrust there and little resistance, so more air flow even though the orifice is kinda small. It was a bit of a crap shoot, really, because she's doing this The Syndicate way, not the Standard way. More on that later.

Plus, they look coo-el. DK has a weakness for shiny. And "industrial suave" styling.
