Here it is. Sorry for the lousy pics. I just set it up with a clear 1" hose and a old rio 2500 for testing.

Don, did you ever know that you're my hero?

LOL That thing is the cats'. You are the man! I am hoping to be able to come over and scope out your reef sometime soon, would that be ok? I think that I have a thing or 2 to learn from you bud. Good Job on the D-swirl. How about naming it the 'Alternater' and you slogan can be 'a very high quality current alternater that you can actually afford' :D

Your welcome to come over some time. I could use the help, my entire house is under construction (remodel). Do you do drywall and hardwood floors?

The Alternator sounds kind of cool. So far I'm happy with it. I didnt spend any time making it look good, was'nt possitive it would work so well. I think I'll do the other side this week in all smoked acrylic.

Sweet, Yes I do Drywall, and I probably can do HWF's I am pretty handy. I will help you out a little if you want. We also still need to go for that bike ride huh?

I will need to make some exact drawing and measurements. It will not work if the geometry and seal preasure are not exact.

I'm going to have my brother do the drawings since that is what he does. I draw as bad as I sing.
Cesar, as a diy project its cheap by comparison. No more than $40 if you buy over priced acrylic scraps.

The drawing are done, I decided to go ahead and do them myself. Not that great but easy to follow. I'm not going to post on the internet due to possible patent infringment but I will email them to you. What you do with them is up you. All I ask is that you do not make them for resale. My wife is to busy to do the legal stuff and I have no intension of making these for resale. I still need to get one part number for the link but I'll get it this weekend and get it scanned. PM me with your email address if you want the drawings.
