Do It Yourself truck service oil drip tray and oil transfer funnel. Get a 20 liter drum that has been cut in half, the same principle can be applied for any size but I’ve used a 20 liter. Get some steel mesh cut it slightly bigger than the top of your container. Drill holes in line with the mesh. Push it through, then drill holes on the other side. Align the mesh so it’s protruding evenly on both sides then take an angle grinder and cut off the excess. Now you have somewhere to drip drain your containers and drain your oil filters making cleanup a lot easier.
Sometimes a little funnel just doesn’t cut it. Especially when transferring fluid into a 20 liter drum. That’s why I made this transfer funnel. It’s very simple, find a 20 liter drum that has a good base that allows it to sit on other 20 liter drums with handles on it. Then cut the top out of it. Drill a hole for PVC pipe to fit tightly into. You might have to get a file just to make it that fraction bit bigger so that it willl fit, but you want it to be tight to be able to seal fluid.
This works well and is stable on almost all twenty liter drums except the one problem is because of the shape of the bottom of the funnel all of the fluid doesn’t drain away. The solution is a flat bottom container, the problem with this is that it is no longer as stable as the other drum. So combine the two and have the best of both worlds. One final thing to do to get the maximum drainage is to take your die grinder and grind back the PVC pipe so that it is level with the container. Now it is able to drain out to the lastdrop. Taking it a step further you can use this funel to drain the oil straight from the sump to the 20 litre drum. All you need to do is cut a few different size containers for the clearance you require.
