So I am a month late, but I was wondering where I can get these drums. I have searched everywhere (I live in SLC) at used part places and salvage stores, but they don’t have one. I FINALLY got one today from a used parts place, but it is dingy black and covered in what looks like porcelain enamel. So: any ideas where to get metal ones or how to get the drum I have down to the metal?
I would really appreciate ANY advice.
washing machine drums make great composting barrels too.
That is beautiful. I always want to build stuff like this, and I always see things and think “man I could do ______ with that”, but still don’t have half the tools I would need. Stuff is expensive and there are a million little things that come up that require another tool. I wish i lived in a bigger city so I could get my co-op on…
Looks like you could grate a wholelota cheese!
@#2 I recently used one as a portable fire pit. We threw some firewood in the thing, and it let air in and heat out–but contained sparks, soot, and most of the ashes.

One nice thing about Berkeley is that, right in the same building as the Public (book) Library, there is a Tool-Lending Library. You can borrow anything from a table saw or a tile-cutter to welding equipment or even just some metric allen (sp?) wrenches or giant plumber’s wrenches.
I know people that have redone their entire kitchens themselves using the tool-lending library.
I think this is something that people could start in their own communities pretty easily.
