Step 1: Component acquisition
Now there's a good bit of freedom in this design so if you have anything that's "pretty close" to these parts already lying around then by all means use it!
now for the part list:
1: A bottle of NOS energy drink (or more specifically the cap from one)
NOTE! you can use anything here . . .I just like the style of the cap.
2: Two pieces of wood(preferably water resistant wood) about 1" square
3: Two bolts 3.5 inches long
4: Two nuts that fit the bolts
5: A 27 inch piece of ABS or PVC pipe (the only reason i used abs was that black looks cooler . . .PVC is usually cheaper) with a diameter of 2 inches
6:Two end caps for the pipe(obviously the two inch variety)
7: Several zip ties
8: A nylon insert for the nozzle(see pictures . . .experiment with different sizes)
9: A nylon insert that goes from 1/4inch (the insert end) to 1/2inch threads
10: A 1/2 inch PVC ball valve
11: A 1/2 inch to hose attachment(it's got that rotating bit to screw onto a standard garden hose)
12:(optional but highly recommended) a "quick release" hose attachment
AND !!! of course the most important bit, A 17 inch piece of 1/4 inch latex tubing(surprisingly this was rather hard to round up . . . .I've heard that home depot sells it but i went to a couple of em and no one had it . . . i eventually found it at ACE hardware.
1: a vise comes in mighty handy for holding things still while you drill holes and cut the fill level slot
2: a drill and bits for it(you'll need a 3/4 inch bit, a bit a tad smaller than your nozzle, and a bit the same size as your bolts.
3:A knife - the sharper the better but do be extra careful . . . lacerations cast some serious shadows on any project . . .
4: A dremel (or other rotary tool with high rpm) tool and a cutoff disc(they're these little ceramic discs that work great for cutting things quickly)
MOST IMPORTANT!!!!! A very generous helping of safety! there are a lot of dangerous tools here so if you are wise you'll have someone there to make sure you aren't going to hurt yourself!
