I am holding, All ya all responsible

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 

Hey Brothers of the smoke,

 

I found this forum because I was looking for reviews on the MES 30, after reading every thing I could on it, I decided, this is the thing to get, but I can't spend $ 300.00 bucks at the moment. th_crybaby2.gif( Yes I did the roll call thing)

 

Well as fate as a way to work it's magic, I found this thread.

 

After spending countless of hours looking at the builds, innovations and creativity, I decided, I am going to build a "UDS" .

 

I will be picking up a 55 gal open lid drum 01/21/2012, and drill the holes for my future intakes etc....

 

I know you guys and gals like the pics/ progress of a build, but I am not sure on how you like it presented.

 

Do you all prefer it, step by step as I progress? ( it might take a while, I will be doing the build outdoors and even in Arkansas, it can get cold!)

 

Or just I do individual posts on the progress when I can?

 

Short story  long..I am holding, All you all responsible, for by new obsession. ( My bride, of 30 yrs years) says,  I don't need any more!) but I need to do this not only for myself but for the good of all mankind.

 

So, Brothers of the smoke, What is the best way to post the progress? As I go? or As I please?

 

Thank you for your response,

 


Al (PaPaGrizz) Nelson

yea, you can start a thread with the first pics of the fist step, ask and receive any advice you want then continue to update the thread.  So what if it take a little while, we will probably still be here, cheering you along!

 

Good luck

As Promised... Part 2

 

If ya see me doing anything wrong, stupid or other wise just plain time wasting, go ahead and reply, it won't hurt my "feelers" none th_crybaby2.gif

 

 

A while after I got into this part, a few thoughts popped into my head, like:

Should have bought a new drum, need a sandblaster, wish my kids were not grown and gone and make them do it, and maybe I need

Anyhow here it is!
