Default Need Some Help Locating some items

Hey All,

I have 4 55 Gallon drums to make into some UDS's. Only problem, they have no lids. So where can I get some lids from? Anyone have a link? I live in a small town so its hard to find something like that laying around.

Thanks

Lionel

Do you have a Weber Kettle? The lid should fix. Maybe there is a brother or sister that could mail you a drum lid...

I was thinking the same thing as Ash, if the kettle lid fits it might be easier to round up several kettle lids than it would be to find the right drum lid...

Keep your eyes on Craigslist. You should be able to pick up a cheap Weber. Might take a bit though if you are in a small area.

Yea real small area here, pop of the city 4k, county maybe 8k total. Looking around though, just sent an email out to see if I could get some new 55 gal drums with lids from a local peanut processing plant, so maybe that will work out.
