The Book of Toxic Waste Barrel Custom Tutorial

The Book of Toxic Waste Barrel Custom Tutorial




-Supplies Needed-
  • A length of 13 mm poly pipe (length to be determined by how many you wish to make. Each Barrel requires a 22mm length).
    American drip pipe size is 1/2" internal diameter, which has an outside diameter ranging from about .620" (15.7 mm) to .700 (17.8 mm)
    - Provided by Porkins.
  • Flat piece of plastic (I used an ice cream container).
  • Glue (I use what's called Super Glue down under ).
  • Paint -- undercoat, yellow, & green for a spillage effect (I used spray paint for the undercoat & yellow because it was quicker & easier).

-Tutorial-
  1. Cut the pipe into 22mm lengths. I used a jig that I quickly made out of pieces of wood.
  2. Cut 7.8mm radius circles out of the piece of plastic. You need 2 for each barrel. (Note: the radius should be a fraction wider than half the outside diameter of the pipe you are using.)
    To cover the American drip pipe use: .350" radius, or .700" diameter. So close to 11/16" or even 3/4".
    - Provided by Porkins.

    I used my sons divider to score the plastic half way through & finished off with a knife. This is what I mean by "divider":
  3. Glue the plastic circles to the top & bottom of the cut lengths of pipe.
  4. Paint them undercoat & yellow.
  5. Print some Toxic symbols out & glue to the barrel.
  6. Then add a few drops of green around the top for a spillage look.
  7. Glue on to a base.

-Contributions-

What is a divider?

For those of us over here, 13 mm is half inch pipe and 22 mm is about 7/8" long. I'm a bit confused because I'm pretty certain (used to work in the irrigation industry) that drip pipe over here is sold in 1/4" and 1" diameter. I'll have to check on that.

Re: The Book of Toxic Waste Barrel Custom Tutorial

OK, I looked up US drip pipe sizes:

1/4" pipe has .245" OD (6.2 mm dia.)
1/2" pipe has approximately 1/2" ID, with OD ranging from about .620" (15.7 mm) to .700 (17.8 mm)

Also, a 7.8 mm radius circle to cover the ends is .307" radius, or .614" diameter. So very close to 5/8" is what A3n is using. Looks like for US pipe, it needs to be more like 11/16" or even 3/4".

What is a divider?
A divider is a compass with 2 points (used for measuring lengths like on a map - you set the divider to equal the legend & you can count how many times that length is between 2 points to calculate the distance).


What do you call this over there?

Re: The Book of Toxic Waste Barrel Custom Tutorial

Well, don't be too hasty. It looks like the American drip pipe version is going to be around .650" or so, which means that the caps need to be more like .700" diameter. So a bit larger than the 5/8" I posted, closer to 11/16" or even 3/4".

Thanx.

BTW, you missed the link to the PDF toxic waste symbols.

PS: nobody did ever reply & advise what you call a divider over there.
