Pod status

Closer still... Got everything mounted and electrically provisioned. Didn't get to finish plumbing and fill tank yet... Next weekend is my standard answer :-)
Here's a pic of the service cart and pod. It's not rocket science, but man that's a lot of stuff. Ozone, ultraviolet, electrolytic converter, pump, mech filter, heater, heater control, lights, sound.... Whew. Glad I didn't know effort when I first bought tank else I'd chickened out, especially with all the broken bones and all associated pains :-)

But it's nearly there and I need it more than ever !

Finished project ! Jewelers ball vise.

Made from a 16 pound shotput and scrap wood. Weight of ball needs no clamping to be stable but yet can be spun in any direction to any angle.

Has a 2 hot pen digital wax tool mounted to it as well as adjustable hand rests and LED light ring with magnifier.

Tripod stand adjusts up and down is steady.

I think it will be the best solution for my small stuff.

Refurbished ozone injection manifold

Refurbished ozone injection manifold. Nothing ever easy!!!

 Those clear (now) lines have to be cut to an very exactly length. Then the Venturi , hose , and fittings all have to be a precise diameter. Then the whole assembly has to be assemblies while doing a twist and turn motion... Repeatedly.  

But now the clear tube with allow you clearly to see the ozone bubbles in the manifold before and after mix and control the mix with the valve.

 Lastly the tape did have a leak underneath. I replaced that fitting securely and am now confident to put it into the plumbing.

Sensory Deprivation Therapy Pod

Here's the final job... Connect plumbing and wiring on service cart and reapply dressings (wood) on tank. Left to right: power strip, ECO- electro catalytic chlorine salt converter, pump, mechanical filter, digital heater control unit, heater, ultraviolet sterilization unit, ozone generator, ozone injection manifold, power strip with GFI protection. Whew... That's some stuff to do nothing!
