So almost stuffed up a module by pumping to much heat into it and warping the shit out of the ferrule serves me right for welding drunk

Coming along nicely mate :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Gotta watch the heat with this stainless stuff, it can catch ya off gaurd. With material that thick and with 1.6 tungstans (not sure what your running) I would probably only be using 30-40 amps but that would be different from machine to machine of course and I'm no pro but a bit of a tip for ya if it helps.

Keep up the good work, not long now :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Invert the keg and use the 2" opening as as your drain, no need for a pump then.

Your keg will need to be high enough for a bucket to fit under on have a drain close handy if you don't want to use a pump.

why do you require a pump with a drain on the bottom?

I was just going to use a small bucket on the bottom when it drains otherwise it will b too high for my liking
