New Drum...Liner?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I scored a free drum from a guy I work with. The inside has a tannish coating that scratches easily. I got down to bare metal by scratching with a screwdriver.

I thought this was a good sign.....then I tried to burn it with a propane torch. That stuff wont burn!

I will try burning a good hot fire in it and see what happens.

Give it a good hot burn then grind it out. Wear a dust mask too. Let us know how it goes.

Sounds like the dreaded liner. Here is some more info for you to read up on.

Ditto what PigCicles said. But I didn't have much luck with the wire wheel when grinding mine after the burn. But a paint stripper wheel worked pretty good. The one I bought was a little bigger than this pic.

Were you able to remove all of the liner with a burn and the stripping wheel?

Sorry I am so late responding to this question. Yes I was able to remove all of the liner with the stripping wheel after the burnout.

Good luck with your build.
