Hey guys I am currently in the process of finally getting my tube done, I cant wait to finally put it to good use.
I thought I would post some teaser pictures before I do all the brazing tomorrow .
These pictures dont do the work that DetroitAC did justice! He did a great job on this for such a fair price and fast turn around for a custom piece!
Please try not to drool on your keyboard....
Thats all for now check back soon for an update
Alright guys I know it took me about a week to get this done and
quite a few hours cleaning it up because well..... I'M A NOOB when
it comes to building these things as it is my first one I built, and
as you can tell from the pictures some of my brazing skills are not
Anyways here it is in all its glory! thanks again to DetroitAC
Here is the tube after being brazed... yes I know my skills arnt the
best but I am getting better. Note the EXCESS amount of brazing
on the hold down..
Alright here I am starting to clean up all the brazes and oxidation...
That was fun!!!!
Here is the tube after all the major cleaning up has been done!!
pheew that was a BLAST
Next step was to lapp the bottum, this was fairly easy becasue of DetroitsAC's skills..
Here I have made my cutting board hold downs..... LOL they need to be cleaned up a bit yet.
Here is the systems the tube is going to be used on, hopefuly i can really push the e6700!! the phase isnt quite cutting it at the moment.
Alright I have one more thing, and I need you guys input on
this matter, as i have already said I am a noob to building
these tubes, and I didnt have the quipment to properly purge
the inside on the tube while brazing... soooo I still have a
slight oxiidation problem (see picture) I have tried vinigar
multiple time and it sees to be working but i was wondering if
there might be a better solution to gett ALL of this junk out!!
I want Detroits base to work to its full potential!!! Any Ideas???
PLease let me know. THen next step i might try is some sort of
electrolisis (spelling?) IDK please give some input!
