Thanks! As far as the lid....I use threaded pipe plugs. Screw them in when the drum is not in use. Could have used regular ole pipe plugs and dropped them in but this gives it a good tight seal.
For the air intake, I used threaded pipe nipples. Close three nipples with caps and the 4th one I attached a ball valve. I rarely use the ball valve and would leave it off the next build.
