Just thought I would make good on my promise to post instructions on how to make super cheap grease pods...the $3-$4 Home Depo 3 inch PCP end caps were too expensive for us to use as we began to build many more of these ant proof bee hive stands...
Here's the material list for producing super inexpensive ABS grease pods:
3"x10' black ABS [using a cut off wheel/chop saw, we were able to quickly cut the ABS into 2 inch pieces...so that was roughly 60 pieces per 10 ft section of ABS]
Scrap sheet metal [the thinner the better]
Self tapping 1/2" pan head screws
Primer and paint
And we will also try our hand at using bean cans for the grease pods too. Will post some pics of those later...
Trying to make do with odds and ends we have laying around...we call it hill billy style!
Hope this helps!
