I just wanted to post that today I cut into a 55-gallon drum to make a cooking rack soaker out of one end, and I measured the wall thickness as 19 gauge steel. That's .042" thick. This is handy info for anyone planning to weld to this material. I don't know if all drums are made from the same gauge sheet, however.
