Title: HF Filtered Parts washer


tackit - November 30, 2011 01:33 AM (GMT)
One of those projects that didn't have to be.

I needed a new parts washer so I ordered a HF and changed it's legs, shelf and put a filter on it for no good reason.

It was a waste of time and money, I don't advise anyone to be follish enough to build one like it. a bucket works just fine.

Replacing the cartrige on that filter is going to send you into a cardiac incident when you see the price.

when I think back on it it was a stupid project, could have used the money and time to do something more helpful in the shop

this was a sensible and handy project, it's worked out great for keeping things in order

I wish I could sell everything and make enough to buy this.

Sure you will.

In the meantime, save up old sweatsocks in a baggie.

When the filter plugs spend some quality time with a canopener, remove the paper element, pack that area with old socks and reassemble.

Good idea.
I don't think I used enough of the citrus cleaner, it worked for shyt.Mabe if I would have put 10 bottles in it would have worked.

I've yet to find a citrus cleaner that made me any happier than Simple Green.

Grease seems easier to destroy with caustic based cleaners, but those present a whole new set of problems, especially around aluminum.

OK, What is it?

I have an old desktop degreaser I bought a long time ago. It holds about 3 gallons of kerosene and I mix in some degreaser I got from Napa in a 5 gallon can.

It's inconvenient enough that I only use it when I'm tearing down an engine - which is not all that often anymore.

It's going to be a resetting knock down target mechanism.

I have to watch, the paint will come off with caustic cleaners. I'll probably go back to 50/50 diesel and mineral spirits....

Been using a ss Xray developing tank since 87. Watched a doctor & his office girl drag it from the elevator to the curb. I asked if they were tossing it said thanks, and grabbed the dollie off the truck and pushed it to the truck. The girl followed me and said the doc had 3 more I could have if they could use the cart to move them. I generously helped her move them. Took 2 days to haul them away.

Funny how impressed professional people are by a simple 4 wheel dollie & ratchet strap.

Youre lucky you live in NY where all sorts of things can be had.

I've never been able to find a 275 gal oil tank here since the Chinese started buying our scrap , even left my name at the scrap yards.. I gave up looking for one.

Now I'm so old and full of arthritis I wouldn't take one if they would deliver it to the house sandblasted and steamed out.

Nice looking spring detent.

I need to make some targets for my place now that I can leave them out and not fear them growing legs.

tackit - December 1, 2011 02:10 PM (GMT)
Jim the detents came from Carr Lane. I ordered them directly from them.
