    Nice :thumbup:

    I think some nice round brass handles would look good on that dark wood.

    Thanx man.
    I just need brase nobs for handles.
    Then its done

    Oh ja, me and my buddy will also be building a topup tank today.
    Its gona be 1000mm x 350mm x 300mm.
    For the begining i will do it manualy by just opening a valve to topup the sump in the return chamber with RO water.

    Then later on i will get an auto topup pump and this will all work automaticly.
    Ill post some pics maybe tonight.
