Parts Wash Tub Made From Old Sink
Lori Lynn Parkin and her husband put a lot of time into refurbishing Farmall tractors, removing rusted and paint-scarred parts that require solvents for cleaning. For years they used a small tank for soaking parts, but Lori Lynn found an old commercial-quality stainless washing sink on Facebook Market Place that she says works a whole lot better. She says the stainless tub is ideal because itís nearly 4 ft. wide, 2 ft. across, and about 18 in. deep. Solvents they use to clean parts donít affect the tub surfaces, and itís easy to clean.
They built a sturdy base about 2 ft. tall, so the sink sits high enough off the floor to drain solvents into 5-gal. pails for straining and reuse. They also made a large metal grate to cover the bottom of the sink so parts as large as tractor wheel weights can be completely immersed in solvent to remove rust and old paint.
