I need some help from the Brethren out there. I have been dying to make a UDS for some time now. My problem is I can't find any where to get a barrel at. I've looked on craigslist for my area and the closest one is almost a hundred mile drive. I've tried local companys and they either don't have any or they won't sell to the general public. I never thought scoring a barrel would be such a FARKIN' pain! So, I could use some help especially from the brethren in and around northeast PA. I'm ten miles outside of Hazleton if that helps at all.:help:

I get mine from a heavy truck dealership, any barrel containing grease or petroleum will work, they are usually unlined and have a removable top. You may have to pay them what their deposit on the barrel would be. I'm originally from Luzerne Co. I seem to remember a bulk oil distributor in Hazleton, you might check with them as well.

Grease Monkey or other oil changing places will usually sell them for the deposit (like 20 bucks).

I know it seems a bit steep- but at $4-5 a gallon...

Delivered mine in about a week. :)

Little bit of a ride for you, but I got mine from a local welder here in Tannersville. He gets them direct from Pocono Produce in Stroudsburg. I paid $10 bucks for mine, with the lid. He gets them by the dozen or so, scraps the lids and sells the barrels as burning barrels. Give him a call to see if he has any and ask him to save you a lid. Tell him the guys at Carl's Pool & Stove sent you ;)

I was checking these out, but what scared me off was I thought that was the dreaded red liner. Even if it is, what's the easiest way to remove them?

I get mine for free from the local Tire America/NTB. They set them out back for me. The manager said if I don't take them, they have to pay to get rid of them. They ae closed top drums, so I have to use webber lids, which are hard to find around here. FROPEN TOP DRUMS< I go to a local recycling place and buy them for $14 each. You might try those types of places.

I really appreciate the offer. I'm about 80 miles north from you. If all else fails I might just take you up on it. :thumb:

Sorry it took so long to answer had a busy weekend... Not sure if they do but give them a call if you haven't already. If it wouldn't cost so much to ship I would give you mine.
