    Here is a link to an article in the Fabricator Magazine on the one I built the parts http://www.thefabricator.com/ArcWeld...le.cfm?ID=1275 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.

          Link,
          Do not buy the plans from e-bay waste of money! I have bought the plans and you or any one can have a copy just e-mail me at bigheadmotorwork@aol.com.

              Link there was a fellow on the Home Shop Machinest sit that built one for his tig. The last pic that I saw, it looked like a real well thought out and made unit.

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