Default my diy catch can

i needed a catch can for my motor and didnt want to spend the cash on somthing nice, so i figured until i get a built engine this was plenty.. i really didnt want to use somthing plastic, and this hit me when i was camping on memorial day... i know some of it is not the prettiest but i used what i had..i under $20 in this setup so i can complain

drain valve $2.50
2 air chucks $2
6"x18" 16ga piece of metal from lowes.. $6 somthing
7' of hose $9ish

1. get a empty propane tank
2.cut it in half ** I DONT SUGGEST DOING THIS FOR SAFETY REASONS, I DRILLED SOME HOLES IN IT BEFORE CUTTING IT IN HALD TO PREVENT AND EXPLOSIONS**
3. get a air tank drain fitting and install it in the bottom half
4. cut a piece of metal to sepearte the in and out side

9. install wool
10. install second baffle ( i had bigger 3/16 holes in this one)
11. weld back together and paint

one of the things i like about this is you can take the valve stem out of the threaded part and put a filter on it and have a vented can
