Chemical tankers

Post by clea on Wed 23 Mar 2016, 3:44 pm

Just meandering a bit, over the years, you think...i want that, I'll buy that. Then you start thinking.....what do I need to make it?
You sit and think about things logically, do a bit of reference...then get off your arse, AND GIVE IT A GO. It's not rocket science.
These two started out as 1 metre of pvc pipe from Reece hardware,...$3.00 and a few bits of plastic...and a bit of common sense

PVC pipe, 2mm ends, carved the suspension, 2mm plastic


sheet guards, bit of channel.

Bit more plastic for the hose trays

Make a dolly for the 2nd one.....Just plastic sections !

And after a LOT OF SATISFACTION....voila ! you've done it, something you can tell others..
I BUILT THAT !
It amazes me that people buy a kit, and spend the same amount of money on aftermarket stuff,....and say "I built that"
Maybe a bit harsh..?
Clea.
