So I decided last week that I had to have a UDS! I put an ad on CL, but no hits...then a guy who I do business with said he could get me a very good condition 55 gal. drum for $8.50! I explained to him EXACTLY what I wanted, but sure enough - he shows up at my office today with a drum that has a sealed top. To his credit, it IS in very good condition. The drum came from an auto service shop...labeled as containing motor oil. I have about 100 old pallets in my warehouse to use for a burn out, so I'm not really worried about what was in the drum. My problem is, I don't know how to cut the top off so that my Webber Grill lid will fit properly on top of the UDS. Do I want to cut INSIDE the top lip of the drum - or right below the lip, essentially cutting off the lip?? Any help would be appreciated. PS - I got a good condition Webber kettle grill off of CL for $20, so this should be a pretty inexpensive build - If I can get the top of the damn drum off! Thanks.
