My Newest Invention

Postby zimco » Thu Oct 06, 2011 10:41 am



Hope this is a help for some of you out there.

I built this for cleaning the rust out of GL1000 gas tanks.

I put rust cutters that they sell at harbor freight into the tank then let the mixer run.

I welded a frame to hold the tank on the mixer base.

The mixer allows the tank to be positioned on different angles so that all of the tank gets cleaned.

When you are done the mixer can be converted back to mixing cement by removing the frame with 3 bolts.

Good idea. You could take it to the BIngo hall too

Does your town have an anti-noise ordinance? Cool idea 8-)

Steve,

It does make a racket but with the garage doors closed it can barely be heard.

My garages are connected to the house and I have to open the connecting door to even hear it.

I guess I have a very well insulated garage.

I usually run it after I am done working in the garage, I talked to the neighbors and they didn't even know I had it.
