Default Homebuilt Cream Machine

Here's my try at a cream machine. Parts are off ebay, but are new.

90 RPM Gear Motor

Zero-Maxx Coupler

1" Oberdorfor Gear Pump

Funnel from CDL

1" 3 Way Valve Stainless

1" tri clover sanitary coupler

.25 Plate of #8 Mirror Finish Aluminum

Various Stainless fittings from ProFlow Dynamics



Try not to laugh at my welds it was my first try at TIG welding.
