Thanks all! I'm hoping to experiment today, I'm sure there is lots to learn.

As for tipping, no tips yet lol. The orginal plan was to create metal brackets that positioned the casters beyond the OD of the drum (someone here has some slick photos doing this) but time and money forced me to simplify. Student budget...

With the two 1-1/2 exhaust on top and all the other black pipe this thing became quite heavy and decently stable. My bigger concern was hanging the lid on the side but that actually works great too!
