what will you be using to drill the hole? hole saw? drill bit?

I figured the easiest way would be to start with a small drill bit and then increase the size gradually. I guessed there would be problems if I just drilled a big hole tangentially in a circular tube.

the drill bit might start to wander away from being straight down when you start because ur not drilling perpendicularly. Start at a slight angle until you get a good start so you dont lose your center punch mark then rotate the drill to straight up and down. are u using a hand drill?

I planned to use the university's bench mounted drill and lock the tube in a vice mounted to the bench. That way it will always drill perpendicular. Is with many things it sounds good in theory, but that doesn't mean it will work when I try it Smile

If I don't get the time to do it before I move for the summer I will definately try your method! Thanks for the tip Smile

so heres a view inside the first chamber with the 40 holes that lead to the main one
I had this thing from some light i had. I forgot what its called but anyways i turned it down and threaded it on the lathe

this is the filter material i have to use



I'd like some recommendations to make this as best as possible. For instance:

-Spacing between parts (the main chamber is about 4 inches)
-How many more holey flow plates should i have in it
-Filters, which and where

Or anything else i might have missed. Thanks in advance

WOW! That is just incredible! You are taking this to a new level! What are the materials you are using? Are you worried about corrosion?

I think the distances you have are pretty good. I don't know all of the details of your fountain and how it is going to work exactly, but are those two plates with holes in it your only flow straighteners?

nah i'm making more, as i assume more straighteners the better right? perhaps each straightener seperated by the same space the straightener takes up.

Aluminum and acrylic i think (lowes stuff) The inlet is just temporary i'll probably make a brass one
