The only problem I see with that is Pipe Fittings and Pipe aren't cheap anymore.

Garage sales!

No, really... Buy a piece here, a piece there... the single most expensive piece should be the wood top.

Either way, always keep your eyes open on Craigslist. Solid core doors should show up once in a while to make a top.

I think I'm gonna make a set of louver punch dies to fit my power hammer & see how it works, guess I should start with small louvers to make sure it will work on my hammer, if it does work, I'll make a couple different size sets of them

Just don't hold your breath, it may be 10 years by the time I'm able to make a set of louver pinch dies, I'll need to finish all the other projects I have started & haven't finished yet, but some day I will give it a go

If you have to grind Aluminum, use WD40 as a lubricant. Stops the abrasive from loading as badly.

I'm getting ready to cast a couple aluminum parts sometime this week, I'm using the regular play sand I lost foam method, only because it takes so long to get my green molding sand ready to go, & I need to get these parts cast & machined by the weekend, just finished making the foam molds this morning. tomorrow I need to go get a little granular chlorine (to de-gas the metal before it solidifies)

Somewhere I have some of that "play sand", it was my oldest grand daughters a few years ago, if we had enough of it, I'd use it rather than the regular sand box play sand

I'll lets ya's know how it goes when finished
