Rolling Oil Pan Made From Barrel
Mark Snider, Cle Elum, Wash., made an oil pan on rollers to catch drain oil from engines. It holds about 12 gal. After filling, it can be wheeled out of the way.
  He started out by cutting the center out of the top of a 55-gal. barrel, leaving a 1 1/2-in. lip on which he screwed down a 1/4-in. crusher screen.
  "I cut down 1 1/2 in. from the top of the barrel and removed it. Then I cut the barrel 8 in. up from the bottom lip," says Snider. "Next, I forced the top ring that I had removed, over the bottom 8-in. barrel and welded it on. A valve on the side of the pan drains out the oil. To completely empty the barrel, I welded the bung from the top of the barrel to the bottom. Then I made plates and gussets to which I attached small wheels."
  The lid came off a Stoody welding wire tub. A fold-down handle makes it easy to tow around.
