What would be the best way to affix some aluminum fins to a Monster Energy drink can? I don't have a tig welder, or a multi-gas torch, just a soldering iron, and a propane blow torch. I'm also open to using an adhesive. It's going to be a radiator for a water-cooling system for my Unimat lathe motor.

Epoxy would be best, but they will only be decoration. There will be nill heat transfer. Get a water cooling kit for a computer. Has all the parts you will need.

Why in the world do you need to water cool a Unimat lathe motor?!?! :rolleyes:

harbor fright stores have the aluminum solder rod, and most Home Despots have it read and follow all instructions. it work fine for most light duty applications.

I want to cool it, since the motor has a duty cycle. And, since it would be cool :o
