Tou can capture the wheel with 3/8" rod with fender washers but it might be a load on the drill.

I think you're right, I'll just cough up $20 for a cheap-o 1/2" impact drill from Harbor
Freight and work it like a rented mule. God willing it won't break before I finish haha,
If it lasts the duration of the build I'll be happy!

This look like it'll be sufficient?

Just got a PM from Barbarian about some missing pics on my UDSIII build. I was reorganizing my Photobucket albums and as such screwed up a lot of the links. Here is a link to the whole album "UDS Builds"...kind of a collection of pics from my first three builds. Sorry for any hassles bro's...

The total height of the my fire box (including stub legs) is 19" High.
The frame is 14.5 X 14.5 X 14.5. The Expanded metal is 7" wide
Thats the whole beauty of the frame is it allows me to lift the
charcoal box out of the drum smoker with no hassle. The grate
screws does not interfere either.

Default Latest mods to my UDS

Originally my air intake valve set about several inches higher than my drum and almost as high as the exhaust.
Well I paid Home Depot a visit and scored a Free scrap 24" black, 1" threaded pipe.Had the guy at HD thread the remaining end.
So far, So good!

I also applied some automobile stickers just for chits and giggles.
I was shocked to find these seem to be taking the heat pretty well!

Here is the Before and after results.
I also added a $17.00, 55 gallon drum dolly from Northern Tools

Before:


After:

I've had a hell of an evening, I just burnt my "aseptic pineapple juice" drum (by way of Kenya!) for the first time. The burn went about as well as I'd expected, it was a pain to get the fire lit due to recent rains and the fact I haven't cut air vents yet, but half a bottle of lighter fluid made things manageable.

I think all in all I spent 7 hours tending the fire, refueling it, drinking beer and generally enjoying myself. I was very pleased to see what I guess to be about 1/3 the liner start to shrivel up and flake away in patches. I plan on burning the drum a few more times to see how much of that liner I can knock out, I'm not so fond of climbing in there with an angle grinder to chase out stubborn remnants.

Funny thing about my drum, seems my liner was white and seemed almost paint like even though I primarily see people discuss a hard epoxy liner that's sort of tan. Anybody encountered a white liner before?
