Figure 13 shows details for a 1¼"
PVC pipe to hold the feeding tubes inside the barrel for the Stewiacke Warm-Box
Milk Bar. This pipe provides a safe place to insert the feeding tubes so they
do not get tangled with the mixing shaft. The PVC pipe is about 36" long.
It has a notch cut at one end to form a leg of about 1¼" in length.
The notch exposes the one-way valves on the milk lines to milk at the bottom of
the barrel. The pipe attaches to the side of the barrel with a plastic clamp and
stainless steel hardware.
