How is the insert secured into the drum? I'm doubting it slides in and makes a tight seal does it? Can anyone help here?

I don't think it's ever been discussed in this thread. I'm doing mine with no welds so how would I get that 2 inch ring "fixed" to the top of my drum?

Also, another question that just came up as I went to HD over lunch. Expanded steel is damn expensive. It's $19 for a 24x24 sheet. Is there a better outlet for this than HD? is it easy to cut? will HD cut it for me? Thanks,
I'm thinking you read the condensed version.

It's all in here.
