Has anyone around here put a cutting fluid pan and pump on theirs yet?

Yep, I did. Here's a pic. I made the pan from 16 gauge because that is what I had. My brake is a little wimpy for that thickness so I ended up bending the lip with a hammer on the anvil. I made the pan too short,it needs to extend beyond the drive wheel to catch all the fluid, I ended up putting a sheet of aluminum to act as a "ramp" to catch the the fluid so it runs back into the pan.
