Another UDS Lid Question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm about to start my first UDS build and the drum I have is a closed head drum. My question is, will the lid from an open head drum fit on a closed head drum after I cut the top off?

If you grind around the outside edge to get the top off you can use it and will get a very tight fitting lid.

That would be great. Could not find an open head drum in my neck of the woods!

It works great.

I did that for a closed top that I have.

I just got a closed barrel as well, but not sure where you guys are talking about cutting.  Anyone got a pic?

On the subject of lids, purchased an open head drum.  I was planning on going with the One Touch Silver 22.5 inch Weber lid.  According to what I've read so far, this lid is suppose to fit perfectly.  Well mine doesn't, its off by 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch.  Is there anything I'm suppose to do?  Any all all suggestion welcome.

Doug
