Starting my 1st UDS build!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

After a bit of research, I've decided to build my 1st UDS. I have the drum and bought most of the hardware for it. I'm about ready to burn the inside of the drum to get it any / all stuff out of it.  The drum itself appears to be in good condition.  However the entire inside has a rusted powder all it. I'm hoping the fire will take tare of this.  Either way, I know I have to put some elbow grease into sanding the inside and outside down to the bare metal.

 

So....how long do I burn the drum for?....and does the flames really need to go above the rim? (Backyard is a bit tight, and I have concerns about things around it).

 

Any input would be great!

 

Thanks!!!

I started one this week and hope to use it this weekend. I burnt two pallets in mine and payed it on the side to burn the sides and bottom . Took about an hour or so. Good luck.
