We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
We like to store dry goods (lentils, rice, flour, couscous, porridge...) in empty 4pt milk jugs - they're easy to pour from, line up neatly, and are translucent so you can see at a glance what you're running short of. The tricky bit is filling the jugs up. This Thing allows you to make a screw-on funnel out of another milk jug, so you can securely and easily fill your storage jugs up.
This Thing was made in OpenSCAD, based on code by Andrew Plumb (@clothbot). You can fork the code on GitHub: https://github.com/pozorvlak/funnel-collar
Measurements are based on UK milk jug lids. It fits all brands of milk jug I've tried so far, though it's a bit snug on Tesco ones. The SCAD file is parametric, so it should be easy to adjust this to other countries' milk jugs if need be.
You don't, of course, have to fill all N jugs at once. Start with two, and fill up more as you finish more milk jugs.
