Default Re: Simple cylinder shaped gas tanks...

If you do a search of the threads for Apple juice gas tank it will lead you to the beginning and the Godfather of juice tanks, Rockenstein.
I have coffee to make and will see what I have in picasa on this machine. I can post a few pictures of finished ones and if you want to know how to make one, between Rock's original posts and my own version I can walk you through it. Not much is required in tools: an awl or ice pick of some kind, an electric hand drill or dremel tool, a hacksaw or copper tubing cutter, a regular propane torch or butane mini torch and some silver solder. It takes a while to fabricate if you decide to cover it in leather, but is a real satisfying thing to say when asked where you got it, "yeah, I made that myself. Gotta make me coffee...
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
