    I think the target of all of this is the noise. Since I've never tried it, I don't know if it will remove the noise. It will take some, but will it take enough to make a louder/larger compressor...

    I think it would likely take the 'noise' away almost completely, but the vibration would still be there. Most of the noise of a recip is that 'ticky' noise and I don't think it would travel through...

    Cool :)

    I mean, the heat dump of a compressor is a partial factor in evap temp outcome. So it's possible you can get slightly improved temps from it.

    Your cooling unit may also smell like a...

    Um, 'pointless and messy' would be the new answer to your question.

    It's somewhere between phase and chilling if you think of it that way. Closer to chilling since it's oil instead of water, but...

    I'm not really big on selling evaps. There's still people that do, and that's more their thing than mine.

    hehe

    You're right Peter :D it's not pretty but it's also so cheap to make that it's hard to justify.

    I guess when I factor in the time, it's not a lot different in cost to having it machined. ...

    Great to see you back at it!

    Wow, some 'wrecks' to work with. Did you get any panels too, or are they trashed as well?

    I'm sure they'll get the usual attention they deserve :) Anything special...

    Well, a whole bunch of load testing. Not so much about the unit, more about the evap, but pics of shiney painted unit are never a bad thing :D

    Increasing the width of a stepper and locating the mass of the central column can really decrease stepper limitations with spread out/high load cores. Piotres has done with...

    Not so much the 'less is better' thing. Just enough to do the job, but not so much that it slows down the flow of heat. Funny enough one of the primary weaknesses I see in the stepper design is the...

    Evap basics...

    Long it's been thought that an evap should be, and stay, very cold. That is should be slow to cool down with load. That it's better if it does.

    I got to use a number of the @itor...

    That's a decent looking evap. I mean, it may be a bit thick on the base, might not have great heat transfer compared to some, but it's sure better than a hollow evap :D
