    Cool.

    I'd imagine the hoses will get full of crud though?

    Nice, looks like a fun project. I wish my welds looked that good.

    Gorgeous welds:bowdown::clap:


    I snag any old school plastic gas cans with a vent, have collected enough for a lifetime. Don't spill a drop. Pouring right out of bar oil jugs works fine for big saws, for small ones I use a plastic quart oil container with a screw cap.

    I would think bar oil left in the tube would really make a mess when you shut it off?

    Thanks for all the nice comments! I’d say the cost was around 65$, I do them for fun and I know my projects will last long time. It’s not just a 4” tube cut in half. There was about 1/3 of the tube cut off.got The 2 tubes out of the crap bin at work and made it work like this.
