    I'm considering building a water cooler...here's my plan if it's any help. Heater core from a junker on the hill. 12 volt computer cooling fans from radio shack. 12v power supply. 10 amp battery charger. Water pump. The lincoln ls cars 2004-2006 area and maybe more have a small electric water pump and it's cheap. They go bad often and are usually available at the parts store. Little plumbing and wiring and you can recycle your coolant/water
    Interesting...........but I don't do that much tiging,but it will be interesting to see the layout once it done........Good Luck.

      Pedal is great for the bench.
      I have a wireless pedal. We seldom use it.
      We have the east-west controllers on everything in the shop.
      Once you MASTER the hand controller.....say on the bench, then you can lay down awesome beads in all the tough places.
      Sorta like mirror welding. Practice it in wide open spots until you master it.
      If you wait for the hard access places all your tough welds will look like you was having a tough time.
      The east--west controller takes one flick for full travel.
      The north-south takes more than one flick and breaks your concentration.

            Maybe that's why my experience with them has been less than exciting, I've only used the one on my maxstar and it's a north/south model. <br />
            <br />
            I'll keep my eyes out and an open mind about it. If I find a good deal on an east/west version, I'll grab it up and give it a try for sure.
