Bubba, I hope these photos help. The lid is made of the top 6" of a donor drum welded to the flat lid from another drum.
The first three pics are of a lid with the cutout circle another lid on top of it.
The top two show the blue cutout sitting on the white top of a lid.
In the second pic imagine that the blue circle is the cutout area leaving a white ring.
The third one is of the lids turned over, you can see the remains of the gasket that I have not cleaned off yet.
The last two are of the all but painted and a bit of welding finished lid. I hope you can see the 6" part fit inside the curved edge of the other lid.
