Ok, so I have started work on another wood pump. I may regret posting it, but I will show the progress. Here, all the parts have been cut to size, and I have made a rabbit joint on the edges to make the joints stronger.

Here I have added one side to the side collum. Notice the wood blocks to reinforce the joint. Between the blocks and the rabbit joint the collum is pretty tough.

Both sides are on. Keep 'er clamped up for a while to let the glue dry.

Looks like it could be interesting...do you have any finished ones to post or a link to a thread of a previous wooden pump you built?

I've always though about making one of these myself. Just gotta pick a style and draw some plane and get it done.

Looks like some inspiration to me, Mike.

Keep us posted.

You're using 3/4" MDF Panels I assume?

Sorry, I forgot to say, this is a shorty M&S 70. I say shorty because it is 13" shorter to fit in a room with 8' ceilings. This one is made of 3/4" and 1/2" MDF.

Ok, with the sides on, I add some blocks to the top and bottom to serve as attaching points to put the spreader bars and the mounting brackets on. Below is the pieces that will be laminated to form the base. Two pieces of 3/4" and one 1/2" to give me 2"

The base parts are clamped up, and left to dry. I make the base pieces over sized, and will cut them to the correct size later. While the glue dries, I take the finished side collumns outside to route the 3/4" round-over onto the corners.

With the sides finished, it's time to make the nozzle hardware and mount it. I traced the nozzle hook on my Tok. 39, and transferred the shape to this scrap piece of angle aluminum I had laying around. Then, I cut it out with an angle grinder. I also made a nozzle receiver out of some scrap 1/4" plate. After that it was mounted to the side. I checked the nozzle for fit, and it was on to the next step.
