I needed a mobile rig for my vacuum extraction kit. I used an old clothes basket and installed 2 castors plus a rubber foot on the bottom.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The Main Components.
The heavy vacuum pump I put over the side with the castors. The vacuum impound bottle I clamped to the basket with a hose clamp.
Step 2: Connection and Tools.
The vacuum connection to the pump I made with silicone and copper tubing. The spanners and nylon tubing all fit nicely within the modified clothes basket.
Step 3: Completion.
Now all components and tools are secured in my mobile vacuum extraction rig. This setup I have used quite successfully to bleed brake lines, remove transmission fluid and power steering oil.
