I don't have a lock ring for mine.

After a couple uses it fits nice and tight.

Just use the drum lid sans lock ring. It'll seal just fine without it.

Yep. We've built 6-7 drums and all of the came w/ locking rings. As long as you have a good fitting lid, a ring isn't really critical.

Locking ring got thrown out on both of mine, no need for it. If you burn it out, do not put the lid on it, you will warp it at that high of temperature.

Thanks, you better not use anybody else's LOL
I picked up a couple barrels today, so I'm gathering pics, to get ideas.
Frank looks like a good one and how did he come to be Frank?
