Been working on a TIG Torch cooler and thought I'd share some progress pictures. It uses a Miller Coolmate 1 pump a 14,000 BTU radiator fan assy. powered by a DC power supply and a 2.6 gallon aluminum tank.
First I made a tank out of .040 aluminum diamond. I think the polishing compound makes this stuff more difficult to weld, but one of my goals was to practice more on AL to get better, hence the cooler. I made the 1/4" weld bungs on my lathe. I didn't take any pics while welding it. But here it is partially installed. It holds 2.6 gallons.
Then I made the frame. What I like about it is I included a 4" tall drawer underneath the cooler for my consumables, spare torch, etc. The 1/4" female pipe threads are stainless.
See next post for more info, limited to 4 pics......
