It's functional. There is (from the top) a brass reservoir, then a brass adapter piece to the (black) flow sensor, then another brass adapter piece to the brass pipe which via another adapter goes into the pump. There is also a radiator, but it's in front of the fans so not clearly visible in the pics.

There's a project log on Bit-Tech forums.

Today I have finally managed to finish the stand.

Marking out:


The cut out parts drilled and countersunk:


Assembly drilling:


And the pillar top shaped and drilled:


Marking out some brass rod for the thumbwheels:


And the thumb wheels turned and knurled:


And the whole set complete (except for the feet):




Not a bad result, if I say so myself. Learned a lot. Smiley

You certainly may say so, sir, you certainly may.

Not a bad result?  An excellent result.  Now - can you automate that iron rest to do your soldering for you?

If there is one aspect of my job that I love most, it is hand soldering.
It is like a meditation for me.

This soldering station you you have created, it is just beauteous. 
If I had that on my bench at work, I would never get anything done.
I would probably just stare at it all day, polish the brass. . .

<sigh> Next to that, my Metcalf would look like a sorry monolith chiseled by Neanderthals.

You create wonderful works!  Thank you for sharing   -g
