DIY Oil Filter/Funnel Drain

Introduction: DIY Oil Filter/Funnel Drain

A simple/cheap drain for filters and funnels. Not reccommended for large or heavy filters.

Step 1: Buy Supplies

Tupperwear Container
Kitchen Strainer
Glue For Plastic
Small Hacksaw
I bought mine at wallmart for under $40

Step 2: Cut Off Ends of Strainer

I also sanded down the edges afterward but you dont have to.

Step 3: Cut a Hole

Use the strainer to trace a cirlce in the tupperwear lid, make sure to consider where you are putting it if you are also adding funnels to it. I just quickly cut a crappy hole but you can take your time if you want. Make sure the hole is smaller than the strainer so it does not fall through.

Step 4: Glue the Strainer

Apply some glue to the strainer and around the hole then set the strainer in place and wait for it to dry. I later flipped the lid over and glued the bottom side as well for extra strength.

Step 5: Drill Holes

Next strategically drill holes to hold your funnels. In the picture there are extra holes because I did not have a large enough drill bit for the funnels I am placing. Now throw a filter in the strainer to drain and you are done.
