I found a local supplier with a reconditioned drum for $38. I asked whether it had a lining and at first the lady hesitated but then said it has no lining (unlined).
When a drum is reconditioned, if there was a liner, is it all removed and pretty much stripped down to just a steel barrel? She offered a new barrel for $91.[/QUOTE
Just a thought on reconditioned barrels. You're basically taking someone's word about what might have been in barrel previously.
