    Question Dripping funnel?? Problem solved!!

    I was always tryin to figure out what to do with thos funnels after you used them they would drip for 20 min. So GOD came up with this as a solution after much prayer. Here's some Pictures of what I built.

    Tell Me what yall think?? beats putting them in a bucket full of rags?

    At a gas station I worked at we would put the funnel into a 5gal bucket to drain....once it was full farmers would buy them for $5 each....I asked one of them what the **** he did with it......weeds, oil heater, and to run in his tractor that leaked more oil in a day than he could afford to put in it.....and he also added "**** for $5 the buckets worth that"

    How about a paper towel. If you leave your oily funnels open to shop dust etc
    it just goes in with the oil next time. Clean funnels and put away properly. My $.02

    i'm with monte55 on this one. i get so much dust and cr-p flying around in the air. between welding and wood working in the shop, the funnel would be full and unusable when i went to get it.
    nice storage idea though.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com

    I just give them a quick rinse with this. But I don't want the to do it when I just ran oil thr them because it will put to much oil in my parts washer. so this way I just put a little dust and oil in my parts washer.

    You know thats the beauty of a GOD that is my Father. HE cares about everything I want to talk to HIM about. My daughter could call me a talk to me about anything, even the color of shoes she's going to wear that day. I love hearing her voice, Just Like my FATHER in heaven likes hearing mine. Thats the difference between a Religion & a Relationship. Religion makes feel like I'm bothering. Relationship means HE cares about everything I have to say.

    Uh, dumb question, but don't they still drip? Only now they all are going to be as nasty as the top one? But good storage idea.

    What ever floats your boat. If talking to the wall makes you feel connected to a god you go man go.

    I'll not argue spirituality with you on a welding forum. Conversely I'll not put my spirituality in your face.
