Drilled the intakes and burned my barrel out on Sunday - got one with a flat lid and the lever closure/clamp. I got my wood for the burn from the shop teacher at school (I'm a teacher, too.) I picked up the step drill bits at HF - how did I ever live without these things? Having the right tools to do a job sure makes life a lot easier! Anyway, I also grabbed a knotted cable/wire wheel, and tried that out on the inside tonight. Looks like by Saturday night I'll have myself a UDS! My wife can't wait for it to be done, because it's pretty much all I talk about right now. Thanks to everyone who has put some input in here! I'm learning from the best!
