    Yes that's about it in principle as ya want the cold liquid enterin' the block directly over the core and then spirallin' out to the edge where it leaves. If ya have access to a milling machine then that will give a much better finish then by usin' a drillpress.

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    Ok, ok this might be against TweakTown rules but...http://www.procooling.com their forums are best for stuff like that. They have a whole section devoted to building these, but by going there you will still find my n00b spam questions so watch out :D

    yeah, thankfully between my high school and friends dads shop,, I have acsess to pretty much everything I need including a mill :-)
    I was looking at making the chanels a little narrower and then putting the input in the center of the block and having two exit points atth corners of the block, if I can get it to work, it should be really cool
