Show Me Your Toolbox Pumps!
 
I have my chugger on order and am thinking of mounting it in a toolbox. If I have room, I might put all my switches and GFCI outlets inside with it.

If you did this, please post some pics of how you mounted it, along with the wiring.

i just scared the sh!t out of myself in an attempt to be a smart ass.

I thought it would be funny to post a pic of a penis pump here with the comment "this is how I pump my tool".

Well, "funny penis pump" on google image search gave me some horrible, terrifying images. Apparently "funny" is interpreted as "aweful injury from using a".

I'm doubled over in phantom agony right now.... and I need eye bleach.

Wouldn't "toolbox pump" be the inverse of "penis pump"?

Here is my toolbox pump!

Fitting the space to be cut for the pump

The pump is on a single pole switch to turn off and on.

I did have to extend the magnet inside the pump housing to accommodate for the toolbox plastic and longer screws to mount the housing to the pump through the toolbox.

Lid closed ready to go somewhere

All I have to do now is add my cam locks and ball valve and this baby is ready to rock and roll!

GFCI outlet is wired to the black cord that extends out through the side of the toolbox and plugs into your power source.
Rocker switch is spliced inline to the red extension cord.
Pump is plugged into the red extension cord.
Red extension cord is plugged into the GFCI outlet.

I finally bought the Camlock fittings to finish my toolbox and chiller!

I don't have any convenient pics of mine, and it is currently locked up out in the garage so I'm not planning to take any soon, but mine looks similar to DakotaRules, except I used a different pump that has hose barbs instead of threaded connections, and my toolbox is one of those ugly Home Depot Homer boxes.

I bought an extra outlet to mount into the box as well, but haven't really needed it so I haven't bothered putting it in there yet.

The only reason why I pulled all this out of the garage, is that i was reading someone else's post, where they left a little water in their chiller and it froze and broke. So I got worried about mine, pulled out the snow blower and cleaned the driveway. This way I could pull all my gear and check it out because I was worried! Just another excuse to play with my gear.
