Home-Built Pouring Stand For Chemicals
This home-built pouring stand makes it easy to handle "mini-tote" chemical containers. It was built by Ted Van Netten, an Ontario hog producer. He entered it in our annual Environmental Farm Plan invention contest and won a $1,000 prize.
  He simply used 30 ft. of used, 1/2-in. dia. water pipe. He stands it up next to one of the 55-liter containers and tips it down. The problem he had before is that he had to thread the valve on before tipping it sideways and that left the valve exposed to breakage as you tried to carry the 170-lb. jug.
  A steel plate slips under the mini-tote like a 2-wheeler. (Andrew Graham, Program Advisor, Ontario Soil & Crop Improvement Association, 1 Stone Rd. West, Guelph, Ontario N1G 4Y2 Canada ph 519 826-4214)
