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

6.i used air chuck fittings and installed one on the in, and one on the out side of the top half
7. i installed the first baffle which had 1/8 holes right under the return fitting
8.next i cut a piece of stainless steel wool to fit

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
