Yep, that was the original design. It was later modified to have the center four fins connect, then have a single center inlet (with 4 channels). Still not built.

Nice work!

I would hope not, would be a slight waste to make the top from silver

What i ment was are you going to make a copper/silver version?

Looks like a nice design. I can't wait to hear how it preforms.

(side note: Thanks again Joe for fixing it so I can post again)

We're in the process of making custom 1/16" NPT fittings for the outlets. As soon as that's done we can begin the testing stage!!

If the test goes well then we will be moving on to making a copper version.
