Default UDS barrel help

I am working on reading the entire UDS thread and in the meantime been looking for a drum. I am in central Ohio and cannot find one within an hour drive. Anyone have any ideas where to look? Im wanting to get this made before winter hits but the closest i have found is 2 hours drive each way. If thats what i need to do, ill do it just don't tell my wife.

A quick of CL for Dayton shows someone selling a drum for $25 in Troy. Seems that is only about an hour from you. I would thing Dayton would have someone selling drums.

Haha!!! I promise I will not tell on you. Yes, I'm sure it is frustrating, especially when you really want it now. Good luck....keep looking, there has got to be one close by.

I've found the best bet for drums in smaller towns are feed & grain outfits, especially if they blend feed on-site.

Poultry feed almost always has vegetable oil in it, horse feed usually does as well, and sometimes has molasses blended it.

Good luck,

Chris

backwoods, check out your local farm supply or environmental companies. You will find one real close.

Check the free classified papers that you can pick up at gas stations and other places around town, that is usually where i find them.
