Cleaning the lid

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
For those that have used the flat lid from the 55 gallon drum for their UDS, what did you do to clean it? I have a drum that held one part of a foam compound that I will burn out. I saw someone mention sticking the lid on while doing the burnout may warp it. Is there a better way to clean the inside of the lid off? Thanks a lot.

u could use a hand held map torch

hope this helps

A map gas torch will warp it!! Mine did...had to put draw latches on it to hold it down. A wire wheel or a dual action sander will work the best. No quick and easy fix here,sorry.

Thanks everyone. I'm not too worried about quick, just want it done correctly. I plan to burn 3 pallets in the drum itself but didn't know what to do about the lid. I'll have to locate an angle gridner and wire brush somewhere.

Spray it with oven cleaner and let it set a while, then hose it off.
