    I don't know how you have attached the copper tubing to the wood, but I suspect it will break apart there and hurl the tubes across the room at high speed. I hope no one is in the way when it happens. Anyway, the tubes need to swing into a horizontal position when the centrifuge is running, otherwise the sediment will all collect on the wall of the tube instead of in the bottom. The whole setup is dangerous and needs to be put inside a strong enclosure to contain the flying debris when it breaks apart. Sorry, but I can't find anything more positive to say about this.

    First of all I respect your comment however you're wrong in one point, I made this centrifuge to test motor I'm not going to use this in lab and I know that we are rivals in this contest but It doesn't mean that we can make comments which can cause sorrow. Whatever good luck in contest.

    OMG! When the piece of wood breaks/detaches and hits you in the face (or worse if you have XY genes...) this ain't going to be nice.
