Ok well I ended up building a different style. Because my local weld shop had two peaces of steel I wanted and I got a blower given to me so I did a round forge and have the blower plumbed with PVC for now because the local hardware store was closed. But it works for a mockup. Tomorrow I'll finish it up with steel plumbing.
So far I have $20 in it and about 2 hrs welding.
