FWIW ~ Just found a new source for barrels in Lower Mid MO...

Shirley's Furniture & JR's Hardware (ask for JR)
Vienna, MO

Seems JR buys open~head and closed~head barrels (used only once) by the trailer load from some outfit in Springfield. He may have said French's...can't be sure.

The barrels previously contained food~type products...pineapple, mustard, paprika, oleo, palm oil and such. Some lined, some not. Bung holes~a~plenty. Several different barrel designs. No dents. No runs. No drips. No errors...$14.50, you load.

The open~head one's are not at the store. He keeps them at his house under tight security, so you have to follow him to his house. I was hoping for a straight~sided barrel, but, He'll cut the top out of closed~head one's for you, if he doesn't have some done already.

Tell him, the guy who's 3 y.o. son boosted the bunjee cord sent ya.

Just an FYI more than anything...figured this was as good a place to post it as any.
