Default Homemade WC Question

I want to make a WC system from scratch, including the waterblocks, and maybe the resivoir. Since I do not have the technology to drill out the neccecary channels for the water to flow through the block, I want to know if something else would work. If I took a block of copper and attacked copper pipes the size of a pencil with water flowing through them would that have a similar effect?

I was going for something that would look like this:



the water would pump into the piping which would pick put the heat. Would this be efficient? If not, would sinking the pipes in a bit do anything?

All input is appreciated.

Ok if you don't have the proper tools to do it then don't. Those copper pipes will be gorrible and not work at all. Your also almost guaranteed to spring a leak. You'd have to make an S shape going through the block. My advice is buy already made parts from www.dangerden.com and build with that.

Thanks. I'm glad I didn't experiment on my own and asked first. A leak
would suck.

well that's why you 'LEAK TEST' stuff before you put it into a live machine.
