I finally found some 55 gallon drums today so I bought 6 of them seeing have hard they were to find. I also bought a norstar m140-m welder still have to get wire and gas for it. As soon as I get the fire tube from my friend that works at the metal shop I can start welding the fins on the fire tube. I’ve been collecting all the metal bandings from the local lumber yard. Maybe I can get started in a few days. I think ill have to work on it at night with hunting season starting this sat.
As soon as you start cutting and welding, you will be hooked.
If you have any extra money in the budget, consider the plasma cutter from Harbor Freight. A big time saver.
I talked to a well driller today and got 40 inches of pipe for my fire tube I can get two fire tubes out of it and it was all free.
