Ok I gonna try again.

This is a Tow tank with a jug in it, this is what we use for Building Deer blinds among other this, this TT is made out of the 3/4 tubing, they are made to transport liquids in, the other type basket made out of the heavy duty wire is what we make the hog traps they are used for the same purpose to transport liquids.


Imageids in

This is the jug taken out of the basket and marked to cut out windows to make the top, we cut the top of the jug off and invert it and the bottom become to the top because its thicker.


Image

THis is with the jug cut out and attached to the basket, use self tapping screws. just posting this stuff to show you what we are doing with TT

Image

This picture show how the Top is cut into pieces to make eves over the windows and fill in around the corners to prevent rain from coming in. Still need to put some kind of cover around the basket and we use a felt that is used at paper mills. I will post a picture of one that is complete and set up.

What a great series of photos and what a great idea. You have put some thought into this reuse of a used up item. And it works!

Yea When we started using them we could get them for nearly nothing but when people started finding out about all the things they can be used for they started to get more expensive but occasionally you run across some for nothing so if you plan to try some check around before letting anyone know what you are doing with them.

The idea's for the design on these blinds came from a lot of different sources, being the welder in the group I was involved in building all of them, we now have 60 something of them build, and every new batch we build we find improvements to make, first ones we made the windows to big, They work great and we buy old office chairs that swivel and carpet on the floors, put little selves in them to set thing on so they are easy to get to, Like a cold Beer :roll: :lol: . At first the Deer kind of avoid them but they get use to them after awhile and during the rut don't pay them any attention, hogs never pay them any attention unless they smell you.

Looks like a great idea....and the reason I can't even find "ONE" to haul water in... :crazy:
I may have to look harder now....I want one for myself! ;)
