Default Electrolysis Tank Repair.

Tank cradle fabricated to support Home Depot 7 dollar 20 gallon container. Without the support the container spreads and kinks.
Fixed just in time. I found a Piqua Favorite #6 today. Its pickling in the tank.

For small pans a 5 gallon bucket will work.
The handle may stick out of the water but it's nice to deal with a smaller pail that you can move around.
For bigger items you might look for a 30 gallon drum.
The Blue HDPE are thrown away in 30 and 55 gallon sizes.
Swimming pool Chlorine comes in the 30 gallon size and you might find them in Hotel/Motel pool garbage.

I have a very similar setup, only with 1" dowel rods and spring clamps. Assembles in seconds, and everything fits inside the bin for easy storage when not in use. Nice thing about a tank that size and shape is that you can put another piece of wood across the middle, hang extra anodes from it, and clean two pans at the same time.
