    Thumbs up spill free can

    Here are a few pictures of a spill free container
    that I build for my shop . I forgot to take a picture before
    soldering everything but there is a rare earth
    magnet in the container. It stay on my lathe tail stock with cutting
    fluid in it Enjoy

    I like this size container

    I use a damping punch to make a nice flare
    stop my brush from shredding

    I then mark how long I need to cut the pipe, it's push all the way to the bottom.

    That's great! I hate using those kinds of cans because they get gunked up so fast.
