I would use it as a toolpost grinder, I could dress up inside bores or outside surfaces. One of the things I need to do is grind the jaws on my 3 jaw Chuck as it is a little bell mouthed.

So I've had this old school all metal cabinet sitting around for awhile and I decided I wanted to use it to put my valve grinding machine on it. So I sandblasted it and painted it and put on new handles. I don't think any of the newer metal cabinets would be sturdy enough, the valve grinder is pretty heavy I'm guessing it's pushing 100lbs. All part of my ongoing,never ending shop organization.IMG_20201014_204611.jpg

So I'm almost done. Taking a break from drilling the holes in the copper tubing at the bottom. Made a surround for the pump and drilled a bunch of holes where the prefilter is going. Considering doing another on the other side. Ordered the filters along with some spares. Will have to make a holder for it yet, haven't totally decided how I'm going to do that yet.
Reinforced the shelf with some square tubing so I can set something halfway heavy on it without it bending.IMG_20201118_172802.jpgIMG_20201118_172746.jpgIMG_20201118_172721.jpg

Funny you should ask. I actually have to set my 3way ball valve so it favors the spigot vs the brush or it splashes alot. I also discovered that the valve on my bubbler system is going to have to be changed for a real ball valve. Plus I must have a clog in my tubing as I can only get air to come out of the first 4-5 holes

Use Your blow gun and try blowing back through the first bubbler hole that nothing comes out of.
I cant imagine the copper tube being plugged that bad. Might also try taping over the first bubblers so they are sealed then see if air comes out a little farther down the line.
