OUCH!

No hot water tank over my machines, but I do have some plumbing up there. Now I'm all worried...

Reminds me of a time when we came back from General Quarters on the Coral Sea due to a fire in the boiler room. When they released the steam it filled the machine shop and all the machine tools were covered with a nice pretty coat of brown. :eek:

When I was a kid, we left the house for an afternoon trip. The bath was left running. When we got back water was dripping through the ceiling all over the piano.

We lifted the lid of the piano to let it dry out.

Big mistake.

Later in the evening the ceiling came down, into the open piano.

All you need is a pan under the lathe, and a pump to recirculate it.
You lucky dog.

Yep - looks pretty handy. You may want to fit a shutoff spigot to the bottom of the tank though. It's kind of hard to read the mike with the coolant running over it.:D

The photograph and the fact that I have never seen your water tanks before makes it somewhat difficult to understand for me but sorry to see you in trouble. Alistair
