Several years ago I built a CNC machine. It's been having some flood coolant system issues so I decided to cut out the heart of the coolant system and build it stronger. In this video I show how I did that.
These videos usually take a ton of work and a lot of money in tools and materials. I've made a patreon if you're interested in supporting the creation of these projects:

    As a professional welder of 10 years specializing in sheet metal and TIG, I can honestly say this is acceptable work. You managed the heat well, added rod when and where you needed to, and you ended up with a professional looking product. Well done, and dont let hot rod showoffs with their ridiculous setups discourage you.

    I'd add another "loose" filter (with a handle or something) on top of the fixed one to get a majority of the chips out by just lifting the filter.

      I was wondering why not have a filter basket, so that the chips can be easily cleared out. When he stuck his hand in the chips, I was afraid that they were sharp and he would cut himself.

    • Sarcastitone

      @gupiwa I was thinking about this, yeah, it looks impressive to anybody who either doesn't know what a CNC is or hasn't built many things in their life. A CNC really is just a mill that moves and sprays coolant

      Building a CNC router or even mill is surely a big project, but it's not a complicated or creative one. You get lots of busywork and research to do, but it's all been done before and described step by step numerous times.

    i love the pen plotter, we use something simmilar on our 4k fiber laser for certain parts by etching some bend lines. one thing that has worked well for us is to use a solid line to denote a bend in one direction and a dashed line to denote a bend the other direction, helps reduce mistakes!

    Cool upgrade. You can add a coarse stiff mesh over the fine mesh to protect it from mechanical damage. A gap of 15-20 mm would be sufficient between the two. It can be held in place with magnets to make it easier to access for cleaning and revision.

  • Krassas

    Hi! I love your videos!! I have a suggestion. If you make the frame and the screen of the filter in V shape pointing downward, then is less possible to clog, the chips goes to the lower spot and the sides stays clear the most of the time at least. Plus you have more screen surface. And even more you can use an overflow about an inch or so higher than the filter. This way only the coolant can travel through if the screen clog completely and the chips stays in the bottom of the cabin but then you may put more coolant in the tank than you put now. I hope that makes sense 😊

      @Pete F Good comment. I as a Carpenter/maintenance welder, use ITmores as a skills learning resource in all manner of things, so even though I learned spot welding at Secondary School and I sometimes have to fabricate/modify things in sheet metal, I will still happily sit and watch the video. Sometimes, someone will do something and I will be like, Hello what happened there? It comes in handy at work and at home. If you have seen something done, the idea hangs around and can provide a Get Out of Jail Card moment.

    Did you consider coating the collection system you made in the video with some type of wax to decrease μ in frictional force to really get the aqueous soln cookin down that ramp? Also, did you consider using a Zinc screen or charging the screen to help pull some of the debris out of soln to help protect the filter?

  • Travis Norton
    Travis Norton

    I would recommend scotch brite pads instead of the mesh or over top of it, they’re cheap, won’t get punctured from a tool and allow the coolant to pass freely while holding the chips. We use them at our shop for filters on lathes and knife grinders

  • Travis Gallagher

    Would love to see that screen filter be held with magnets instead of bolts. Also, I love this channel and I think that spot welder is super cool

  • Merigold

    My 2 cents: You should add an sealant/gasket between the mesh-assembly and the funnel. Or you should have invested in seamless rivet nuts…

  • SovietandScotsman

    This is so unbelievably over-engineered and significantly more complicated than it needed to be... I love it.

    • Azure

      @SovietandScotsman He was worried about leakage, im afraid the man has no welding skill and two triangles welded together at their sides is significantly more prone to leakage as the weld breaks down to wear and tear than a sheet of metal just bent. That and he wanted to move his motor out of the way of the coolant not have the coolant just flow over it

    • SovietandScotsman

      @No Could've just done 2 pairs of triangles and connected everything together with a circle so the pump was at the lowest point, and then put a domed mesh over it so it would stop the chips from getting in while allowing the coolant to go up and over any clogs that may happen. Wouldn't have taken much work, but I assume there was some reason why it was done like this, but I'm not sure why...

    A good addition to your new coolant system would be a corkscrew that pushes the shavings off of the filter and maybe into a bucket, maybe with an upward slope so that you don't lose coolant.

  • Ezekiel

    Love your content bro. You can fine tune your RivNut setting tool by increasing/decreasing the amount of threads that are available to screw the RivNut onto during installation. It shouldn't be that hard to set... I've stripped the threads out before. Learned the hard way.

    • denis loginowski
      denis loginowski

      I was thinking the same thing, what usually works for me is to adjust the collar such that the mandrill is flush with the tip of the rivnut when the handles are about 30-35 degrees apart. Then you can just bottom out the tool and get the perfect rivnut. Obviously depends on material thickness and rivnut grip range, but that's a good place to start.

    Jackstands are incredibly useful for holding up tanks that you're trying to separate from structures that are too large for you to reach around.

  • grayduster

    One thing you could also do to guard against really fine chips is perhaps to install a dam into your coolant tank, with the drain falling into one side of the coolant tank, the dam (vertical divider) stopping the fine chips from flowing towards the pump, and the coolant overflowing the top of the dam into the pump side. Hopefully never needed!

    When you took out the last bolt and the tub dropped all over, I was reminded of a time where I removed bolts without thinking about it and faced the consequences. I was fixing the garage door, which had a snapped cable on one side and was slanted at about a 5 degree angle, jamming it. I proceeded to take the nuts out of the plate holding the cable to the side still attached to the spring. When that last bolt came out, the plate flew up right into my face. It hit the right lens of my glasses, throwing it into the bridge of my nose, leaving a small bruise on the bridge of my noise. It then slid over my brow leaving a gash that cost me three or four stiches. If I weren't wearing glasses, I most likely would have lost an eye. I leave the garage door repairs to the pros now.

    I’m way late from video upload time, but it is interesting to see you do upgrade builds and stuff like with this and also the pen plasma cutter attachment

    That looks a lot like a oil pan for a car. A few adjustments and you can start making custom oil pans for cars. Love your channel. Just a observation from a car guy.

      Cleetus McFarland just broke the oil pan on Ruby

      @Mark Fryer another application that hasn't been mentioned (directly, someone said a larger pan but not why) would be if someone is adding additional parts that require oil. Such as upgrading/adding a new turbo or supercharger :)

      I didn't even consider the fact that his garage could literally make custom car parts. But that's absolutely something he could do. And the plans for a lot of parts might even be on the internet, especially mustangs, corvettes, firebirds, and all the other special cars that people seem to really care about.

      @Mark Fryer Or if you're having to replace one on a very rare engine where there aren't many parts available. He did an excellent job fabricating that pan, by the way

      @Mark Fryer As Koby said, could be a fitment issue. Could be the have a bigger oil capacity, better flow or just replacing an existing broken one.
