Was looking at a bunch of the latest cone skimmers and how simply their design is. The catch is as we all know these skimmers go for 200+ dollars which is hard to justify when looking at the construction of some of these skimmers. So i tried and built "very rough" model that will hopefully pull some serious skimmate. The skimmer contains a nice bubble plate and large collection cup along with a completely adjustable flow knob.
Right now it is being powerd by MJ 400 that is unmodded besides the venturi. I'm thinking that I'll be better off with a larger one and modded with a mesh wheel of some sort.
I will eventually put pics up how it works and if it produces any skimmate. Also if anyone is interested on how to construct this DIY I can put up more pics and a list of stuff needed.
