    Default "Bucket Tipper"

    Here's one for all the autobody guys out there. Ever try to pour paint out of a 5 gallon pail into a 1 pint mixing jar? If the pail is full you almost always make a mess on your first try. Here is the solution I came uup with:

    The whole material list is as follows:

    1/8" plate cut into a 10" dia. circle
    16' of 3/4"x3/4"x0.100" tubing
    18" 1/2" dia. hot rolled mild steel
    36" 1/8"x3/4" flat bar
    3" 1" hot roll with 17/32" hole bored through
    10@ 1/2" flat washers
    2@ 1//2"x2" NC bolts
    2@ 1/2" NC nuts

    After boring (drilling if you don't have a lathe) the 1" round bar, cut 2 1" pcs and 2 1/2" pcs. the short pieces become part of the clamp system. The 1" pieces are for the hinge assemblies.
    Make 2 assy. for the clamps by welding a 1/2"nut, a 2" piece of the 1/2" hot roll and one of the 1/2" bushings together (repeat twice). I ran a bolt through each nut on the clamp assemblies and tacked a 1/2" washer to the end of it to make the pads. Put both of these on a 3" piece of hot roll with a washer tacked at each end. These make a small bar- or bessy-style clamp

    Hinges are the same type of thing: a 2" piece of hot roll run through a 1" bushing w/ washers welded on either side to eliminate lateral play.

    Clear as mud? Hope this helps-- If not PM me and I'll take some more photos this week. Cheers!!

    I like it! Don't often deal with 5 gallon cans, but dealing with 1 gallon cans into a mixing cup is hard enough.

    Ditto on that! Just yesterday painting a Red Face, first pour out of a gallon can of primer into the spray gun, now I have one gray boot!
