A lathe with a face plate or the 4 jaw chuck to machine out the odd shaped pump body not drive it was my intent. You must be an attorney with twisting wording around. I can't believe some of these replies at times, sorry not picking on you just had to answer back. I would use a 90 VDC motor with a speed control, a Von Weise Gear Company I had in mind for motors. I have a 1/30 HP motor that runs off 120 VAC with speed controler to the 90 VDC motor. The parallel drive gearbox output on the 5/16" shaft is controlled from 18 to 114 rpm's. I can not stop it without trying to damage it with a 10" Cresent wrench on the output shaft.
A made in Missouri company. This motor is slated for the HLT stir propeller and another for the pump when I build one later.

I am now at the stage where I have 3pumps to the Mk3 design which can be seen here. It flows about 10 litres per minute. All discussion on this has now moved to the thread home made perishable pumps

Blessed are the "cracked", for it is they who let in the light.

Why not use one of those Triumph V-8s? I think they came in the Stag model. That way if you get lost your friends can find you by following the coolant and oil drops.

I have been toying around with the idea of a Peristaltic pump and was wondering if oxygen exposure would be a concern when transferring from fermentor to keg. Thanks!
