Mystery project?????

Got to liven up this forum!
This is for all you tinkerers, budding engineers and frustrated designers.
Got a piece of equipment which needs an upgrade (it's old).
Here's the first part of the upgrade I fabricated.




More pictures to follow, but let's see who guesses it first.

Yes it's a drain tray, but not for a fridge.
Here's couple more clues.

Coaster1, I hold my fellow moonshiners in very high esteem.

They are part of true Americana, self reliant, self employed, not on a government dole, and superb do-it-yourselves. But you are right, there will be no boiling of mash in my contraption.

I use a little pump and a drain like that for my hydroponic plant setup.. The trays look similar too.

I'd guess a lubricant dispensing system for a lathe or bandsaw.

Bingo! We have a winner!!!!!!!!!!!!!

94-Newmar, I purchased an old industrial band saw without cooling/lubricating attachment. You can buy an attachment for around $200 bucks but then you have to screw around to adapt it anyway. All the parts and pieces for my contraption cost me less than half that.



The most expensive part was the submersible pump, $19 bucks, it's used in backyard waterfalls. I should have it finished (powered) by the end of today.
