Cant get to edit old post.
Divide drum into 3 sections
Layout grill holes.
I chose 1 3/4"" and 8" from top. You should assess the drum you are using.
Layout Intake holes.
I chose 2" from bottom.
Layout Gauge hole.
I chose 9" (1" below lower rack)
Drill pilot holes.
Drill holes for Intake nipples
I use 1" which lets you thread 3/4" nipple (clean round hole)
Drill out holes for Grate supports
I am going to use 1/4" bolts. I use Unibit to get clean holes in thin metal.
Open up hole for gauge.
I use 3/4" hole which is a tight fit for a 1/2" pipe thread.
Thread in 3/4" close nipples
I use cap to protect threads and screw in as far as possible.
This link will show alternative to welding nipples.
Weld in Nipples
Install 3/4" ball valve.
Install grate supports.
I use this set up. I go hex head in. It seems to keep grate from slipping off when setting in. Also nice when you spin grate.
I use 1 3/4" for top and 2" for bottom.
Again use conduit nut that comes with gauge to lock in.
The Prontologist is in...
Ok let's see your Butt!
