    So here's my new contraption. It's a 8$ oil pan with a cutout and a 1 1/2 electrical 45 in there. Used it on 4 jobs and really like it better then the mortar pan. You make the conections in the pan. So if you make your own, learn from my mistakes and:

    -insert the elbow close to the handle, this way if you pick it up by the handle, nothing drips out.
    -use a guide hose only 4 long.

    Total cost was under 15$ to make.
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

      It looks like a primitive drum machine.

      Just have to figure out how to better attach that oil pan (drum) to the machine

            A lot to be said for squid ingenuity.
            I love it.

              But the term squid is usually reserved for surface warfare sailors,
              Ben is a Seabee and most (but not all) Bees have shore billets.

              And there is nobody better at scrounging or MacGyvering something
              together in a pinch when you need it most than a Seabee.

                Just a few more modifications and you will have a one piece drum machine

                  Nice set up. Almost as convenient as my Model N, which holds 75' of that sectional cable with in it's drum.

                  Do you have to hook up each section of cable one at a time? Just trying to figure out how you keep the cable under control while in use.

                    Hook up one at a time. The lip on the pan keeps the cable inside very well. If the model n had instant start/stop, it would be the ultimate.

                      Congratulations on creating the world's first sectional drum machine! This ends all the debates on which one is better.
