Sweet!
I have the incredibly rare blessing of completely unlimited access to helium. One of our clients provides whatever we ask for because I use it in leak detection.

Lucky man! I got to finally use some at work today. I'm hooked. Now if only they would get it for everyday use!

This was terrifying but so exciting! I posted earlier the beginnings of this, now it's all done, just need to add some sensors and pressure references, maybe a brace to the block. Last week I finally got off my ass and bought the plenum metal, and went to my friend's shop with a big press with my angle and rod to bend it. It worked well with the experiment with the coolant tank so I was cautiously optimistic. But even with 3003, it is just too much length with a single pressure point. The 1.5" solid aluminum bar bent before making much of an impression on the sheet (3/16" thick). I called several audibles, one was a steel jack handle, that crushed. Finally we found a 1.5" solid STEEL bar, I cut it to length and that finally worked. It almost seemed like it wasn't going to, it was bending a lot but wasn't yielding and when it bottomed out in the angle, it straightened out the bend. PSI is a bitch, I'm from an RC airplane model background and I should have an appreciation for load distribution but it's still hard to picture intuitively.

Alls' well that ends well, I'm SUPER stoked with the end result, I was cautiously optimistic that my skill level was now where it needs to be but I always tend to attempt things when they're at least a notch outside of my comfort zone and sometimes ability but that's what makes it fun...

That looks fancy and like you did a heck a job welding that all out.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.
