I'm about 145 pages in, without skipping ahead, but I have to get this question in. I have read where some people have found non-food grade barrels with acetone or oil in them, and the consensus is that a good cleaning-burn-wire wheel combination and they will be good to go.

So here's my question: I have access to free drums that previously contained contact cement. If I clean, thoroughly burn, and wire-wheel it, will they be ok to use?

I'm very anxious to start my first UDS build, but $$ a little tight and free drums would be a good kick-off.

Just gotta say this thread and all the info contained within it is AMAZING!
