    I've had an aluminum drip catch pan for many years, at least that's what I use it for. Problem is, I've got no idea where I got it, or where to get another... and it's an almost perfect fit for a coolant tray under my band saw (I'm adding coolant). But it's too handy to sacrifice for the coolant tray. Rather than building a tray out of 20 ga. sheet, I thought maybe I could find something cheap that would work. Any ideas? Where can these metal "drip pans" be bought? I should probably check Pep Boys, AZ, Checkers, etc. but figured I would ask on here first...

    I'll make my own nozzel and use a 3 gallon HF "parts washer" for the tank and pump. Switch, pump, and tank all in one...

    Sounds like fun. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    I've seen a couple like that but make sure you post up some pics when you get it together. I'll probably head in that direction before too long and the more examples I have to see the less stupid mistakes I'll have to make. /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif
