Who here does homemade tools?

What welding projects are you working on? Are you proud of something you built?
How about posting some pics so other welders can get some ideas?

That'll be a sexy water cooler! What kind of pump are you gonna use?

I've been making, rebuilding procon pumps for Tig coolers.
Now I've found a place I can buy them rebuilt cheaper than I can do it myself.
JC Beverage. Forty something, like new, ready to go. Right flow, right pressure, and tech support.
AND, they're nice to deal with!

Nice, looks professional. Do you have a mill or lathe in your home shop?
