Funnel and a mallet.

Actually, if you see those marks on the drum, that is where the tool used to remove the drum head top. See the middle picture where he shows how the grate support bolts are installed and you can see he removed the top. The bung hole tip would be handy though, if you are building a flat top UDS, and you would still be cutting off the top.

Correct, I make the marks, then the holes and then used a deheader to cut the top off. I am working on a video but having issues.

What tool. Chisel, jig saw, sawzall? None of those would make a mark like that that I know of.

I swear I have looked at this 40 times and don't see when or how he cut the top off or should I say cut the top out.

So, do I assume if using a donor dome type lid, I need to start with a closed end drum?
And if using the drum lid, I need to start with an open end drum?

Sorry for my thick headedness.

I'll ask again:

If you are starting with a open end drum, you can go either way.

If you want to use the lid that comes with the drum, it is easier to get an open top with the lid. if you get a closed top drum and want to use the lid, you will need to cut off the top below the bead, reinforce the cut drum edge, refit the lid, swell the drum edge below the bead etc...it won't be worth it.

Wait a minute. Norcoredneck just posted a video showing that he cut the top out of a closed head drum with a drum deheader on the top of the drum, not below the bead on the side of the drum! Let's not try and re-invent the wheel here.

I guess I'm just not getting this through my thick skull.
Let me try this again:
If I get an open end drum, I can use the drum lid that comes with the drum (with the bung holes) OR use a Weber, Kingsford (Masterbuilt) or Uniflame dome lid? Correct?

If it's 22.5", it can be Fisher-Price.

"If it's"? What's that suppose to mean? I never bought a drum before so I have no clue what size the end of a closed or open end drum is. Why do you think I'm asking these questions for? My health?

Just forget it. To many smart ass's in here. I'll take my questions elsewhere!

Measure a farkin' drum, or better yet, read a farkin' thread, and you would realize that most 55 gal. drums are accomodating 22.5" equipment. SHEESH!!
