    Here is a link to an article in the Fabricator Magazine on the one I built the parts list and pictures are on the Miller "Ask Andy" forum, and also on the Hobart "Weld Talk" projects forum, if you want to search for it. I would not recommend a fountian pump for a cooler build, you can find procon pumps on ebay a lot cheaper than $250, I bought a used one with a new 120V fractional motor for $45 from some guy.

                  You should pump about 1.25 qt/min at about 50 PSI.
