Default First timer

Like most first time posters Iíll say how impressed I am with this board and I am really impressed with this thread on the UDS.

So impressed that I had my friend order me a new un-lined open lid drum so I can build my own.

Currently, standard 55 gallon un-lined drums are $55 new and he is checking on larger drums as well.

It may take me a few weeks but Iíll show my progress for all to see.

I just wanted to show my appreciation for all the information on this board.

Thanks guys!

Sincerely,

The Chairman

Default My First Drum

My first drum is finished and in the process of being seasoned.

The pictures.
1) The original drum.
2) After the burn out (had to do this twice, once with a weed burner and a second time with some hardwood firewood I had from a camping trip)
3) After the wire wheel.
4 & 5) Rubbed with peanut oil and ready for seasoning.
6) The finished drum.
7) The proud father of his first drum!

She is holding steady at 310 for seasoning. Probably let her go a few hours. I want to thank everyone on this forum for all their input and help. I have no doubt this is not going to be my only UDS, just my first!

It wasn't easy to get it that way either. Ended up putting a 6" wire wheel on my high speed tile saw and crawling inside. My wife almost wanted to hose me off out back before I came in the house.

Next time try one of these on a 1/2" threaded rod double nutted to capture. Use a drill and you can run it up and down inside .

Quick question, what did you use on the intake to regulate the flow of air? I can't make out what you used from the pictures. I'm making one of these soon and have purchased 1/2" nipples and simple ball valves for the bottom, but your's looks a lot cleaner. Thanks

Will do, thanks for the help. Simple ball valves a good idea? I'm a little concerned because they would stick out a few inches all around, but would be handy to close off any/all of the intake. I'm thinking four around the bottom.
