Hi. I have made it through 77 pages of this thread and I'm hooked. I have looked in to drums and found two different sources. One has open head used food grade lined drums with lids for $40. Another has new, painted, unlined drums with lid and clamp for $75.
I am assuming that (from what I have read) the paint on the outside of the new drum should be fine. The drum should be good to go.
How's the price though? The price on the used drums seems high given the prices I have seen posted on here, but I have to say I was quite looking forward to the burnout, being a pyro and all. The cleaning after that, not so much.
