I have a sealed drum that contained hydraulic fluid. Going to cut the top out with a high speed grinder and thin cutoff wheel. Am I going to blow myself up unless I fill it with water or something first?
Edit: was told the hydraulic fluid or other oils (rather than solvents) wouldn't have the airborne combustibles. So I opened the bungs and blew out the air in the drum anyway with my shopvac, and cut the lid off tonight. Nice pretty plain steel insides which I'm cleaning up now.
Good luck with your build and post pics for proof!!
