>About the vacuum chamber. I am getting a 20" Dia x 30" long piece of heavy wall steel pipe. I just priced a Steel flange and fell out of my seat. Cap and flange almost $ 600.00. Change of plan needless to say. What do you think of welding one end closed and machining the other end flat? Then add a top plate and duct tape it on? Do you think I will need to have this machined flat to seal?

Thanks Bill in CG, AZ.
