Wanted: forge body


Recommended Posts

I've been looking all over for another water tank or a 33 gallon drum. Can't find nothin!

I guess all the good scrap tanks will appear later this spring.

 

I'm building a better heat treating furnace so I can turn my water tank forge upright and use it for welding and forging only. I can't realistically do both with the water tank forge.

 

I keep checking craigslist for tanks and drums.

 

So any 55 or 33 gallon drum, steel cylinder or similar would be ideal.

Check out a chinese restaurant supply place or a restaurant... I found 30 gallon metal drums with locking lids for $5 a piece at a place that supplies plum sauce to restaurants... the sauce is shipped to them sealed in these metal drums.... they had a bunch of them and just wanted to get rid of them.... lots of folks use them for making barbecues and smokers according to the owner... got 5 of them... very handy and a good price....
