    The Bupi has mesh on the top of the first weir to stop bits of gasket and other floaters getting into the second drop out chamber.

    I was going to use old socks on the pipe as it drops into the first chamber!

    I'll be interested to see the photos and the details of how this progresses. I have a sealey parts washer that I've been thinking about some form of circ pump and filter arrangement for so looking forward to the different ideas on this one!

    I've been using my small parts washer over the past few days & it is really too small for my use. I have an old sink unit & you have given me some inspiration to build a better parts washer from it. I'll keep the drainer section on it to let the washed bits drip off instead of leaving them on an old newspaper like I do now!

    Dont forget the pics! I just ordered a new brush looks decent quality pass through rather than my home made made.

    Have you a link for it?

    I was thinking of fitting a qrc to the wash hose so I could swap between a brush & nozzle plus a bypass tee in the line somewhere with an adjustable valve to allow me to vary the pressure.

    I was thinking about a t but don't think I need it the flow ain't that powerful. I'll grab a link later when I get to the laptop. I used a pcl coupling so i can swap between brush or jet or whatever else I dream up
