Using readily available parts you can build your own drink machine

I made a wooden enclosure using some old block board shelving, then wired a switch and attached all of the components.

It works from an air pump raising the pressure inside the bottle forcing the liquid out of the tubing through the nozzle.

Possible improvements, Route a drip tray and screw some UPVC trim to the back to provide a splash back.

Very cool idea. Probably not very practical, but then again, how many of the things we make, are? So when does the Ice Maker get attached to the top? ;) Thanks for sharing.

Now I know what I can do with that little pump I have sitting on my desk! I will have to ‘borrow’ your idea!
