Our War Zone - In-House Production, What Does It Take?

In-House Production = Production In The House "Literally"

 

Until I'm able to setup a proper work shop, I just wanted to share my in-house production war zone and what it takes for hand-made products with the minimal tools on hand. There is a huge bridge of work between saw cut pieces to the final products, there is no way around it, only by the hands. The rest of the work are solely hand made from welding, sanding to edge polishing to the finished products.

 

If you appreciate hand-made and home-base products, please show some love and support, lets see more custom orders. I'm up for challenges!!! :)

 

My goals:

  • Have a proper work shop.
  • Create more awesome products
  • See my products in your reef tanks :)
  • Attend MACNA in a near future.

My reality:

  • Headache, sleep deprived, gray hair showing :(
  • Broke, broke, badly broke!!!

I like everything I'm seeing. Quality is very nice. How much for a 2 chamber dosing container? 1 for Cal and 1 for Alk. Each chamber needs to hold 4000ml as I mix 1 gallon at a time. I'd like it to have 1/4 pressure fittings for the rigid tubing to attach to draw the product out along with a tube that goes from the top nearly to the bottom of the container. Probably 1/2 inch from the bottom.

Ah clever!

 

Also that 3g frag tank is so freaking adorable. I kinda want one just because. It would be so perfect for swaps. My local groups swap is coming up...

Thank you so much! :wub:

 

What's holding you back?

 

I'm offering a special combo for tank + two frag racks, tank is slightly larger as well approx 3.2G filled, 3.7G dimensions based.

I already have 3 tanks up and running (IM Nuvo 24, IM Nuvo 8, 15ish g frag tank) and a 60 gallon frag tank in the garage for when I get a house. I think I have a problem... :blush:

Make me a dual filter sock holder that doesn't suck for my eshopps r300 2nd gen sump. Need to easily change out socks without having to mess with the drain lines.


I don't want some chintzsy thing that just hangs off the side.. I want a fully enclosed box so the drain lines go down into the water and then it overflows into the socks, removable lid comes of and I can just pull the socks out to replace.

You might try to pull the filter sock up around the drain line and then angle the neck past the holder. Hard to describe but I can replace my filter socks that way without removing the plumbing.

I think i get the idea but send me some specific details on that and we can go from there. May be pics of your sump as well to give me some ideas.

I made an acrylic box for filter socks that I think is similar to what MikeTR is requesting. The drain lines go into the small chamber which overflows into the sock. Changing socks is painless as no plumbing gets in the way

I have something in mind but thank you. That's a great idea as well!
