One of our customers, Glenn (fuelfarmer), has done some colored water experiments. He mentioned he'd like to have a polycarbonate (Lexan) lid so he could see what was happening during operation. I thought that sounded like a good experiment. Last night I made the parts and today I tested.
I started with this ugly piece of half inch polycarbonate (Lexan) that has been floating around the shop for a while. It is backed up with a piece of white MDF to allow cut through. I counter sunk six holes around the edge and one in the center. I pre-drilled all the screw holes. I opted for a number 8 wood screw because the threads are similar diameter to the number 10 machine screw the lid normally uses.

I then screwed the polycarbonate to the mdf. This will prevent movement during machining. Cutting the 3 inch ID bore. Finished the ID bore.

This is the see through lid on the rotor. I need some longer screws. Hardware store is closed. I'll have to finish in the morning. The feed cone was designed for the domed lid. With some quick work on the old manual lathe I was able to trim away enough material to make it fit with the flat top. The trimming allows about 1/8
This is the see through lid on the rotor. I need some longer screws. Hardware store is closed. I'll have to finish in the morning. The feed cone was designed for the domed lid. With some quick work on the old manual lathe I was able to trim away enough material to make it fit with the flat top. The trimming allows about 1/8" inch clearance. This also demonstrates how the feel cone enters the rotating liquid.
This view shows the complete rotor with the feed cone. Filling the rotor with vegetable oil. This is the rotor nearly full. The picture shows how the oil is held against the rotor and the feed cone tubes extend into the back wall of the rotor.

The rotor is finally full.
