I ground out my red liner as well, taking to heart the "rite of passage" effort as well. Though I thought that was over when I finshed the 550+ page of this thread.
I found it no fun, but also doable. Hearing protection, gloves, goggles and a respirator. Goggles over safety glasses because inside the barrel there is a lot of reside flying around because of the angle grinder motor.
I sent this self portrait home to my wife when I was done.
A couple photos of the work progress.
And the tools.
I since found a place to buy new barrels in Dallas for $41, so I won't be doing this again.
