Default New MLT manifold... Shiny coppery goodness!



Just need to slot / drill the bottoms and we are in business... Not looking forward to slotting since I only have a Dremel tool (where is the metal band saw when you need one?)... Thinking of drilling holes instead... Any thoughts?

The short stubs by the drain, are they capped off?

Copper is easy to drill...the hole size would be critical...

Not yet... Gotta make a run to the Home Gestapo...

I guess while I am there I will invest in a diamond wheel blade for the Dremel... I am just not looking forward to sitting there forever cutting slots...

Hacksaw blades tend to be a bit slimmer than a dremel.

EDIT: Never mind, I thought you meant the reg cutting blades, not the diamond blade. How is that for cutting copper?

Word of advice, cut the slots at an angle. You'll get more flow.

I have no idea... I used the heavy duty cutoff wheels when I made my "little" MLT manifold... Worked great until about the third slot when the wheel started wearing down smaller and smaller.... Then you have to stop, change wheel, repeat as necessary...

BLEH!!!

You could cut enough slits with a dremel and the metal cut off wheels in like 20 minutes. Those dremel metal cut off disks go through copper like a hot knife through butter.

Copper is in boat bottom paint because it kills everything in the ocean...

Nice...looks a lot like mine, slightly different...I made the slits with a metal cutoff wheel on my RotoZip. It was a PITA, but worked, I wished they were a tad bit narrower though.







Safety tip: Wear safety classes when making the slits...flying chards of copper ain't too nice on the eyeballs.
