(There really out to be a T-shirt
An especially big thanks to the masters of this thread, Norco, N8man, Bigmista, Dr.K., BubbaQ, and others I am for getting to name, for listening to us all as we plodded along our own UDS paths asking questions,usually the same ones over and over, and encouraging us to read the thread.
Thanks to all the brethren who have contributed their ideas, tips, pics, and experiences both good and bad. It has been much appreciated.
I will be bringing home one of my freebie drums today to get a look inside and see what work lies ahead. I can hardly wait to get started. I'm gonna find a sheet metal shop that will gut some expanded metal for my firebasket(s) and gather up the rest of the supplies.
