    You are on here and NEED to know what to do with it lol.

    Just be very VERY careful to make sure it's safe before you try cutting it etc. I don't know how to make one safe but the guys that do will no doubt be along shortly to help.

    Looking forward to seeing the pics :)

    I have two words: rotating racks
  11. I know I've had several guys look at the Lang 84 and say there is no way to build it for the price Ben charges. It would be much more.

    That said, I have a cooker - do I need two? No. Would it be just a few hundred to make a cooker out of it?

    Hmmmmmmm. I will get a couple quotes and see where we are.

    Any input guys?

    Free ride to the moon, perhaps.
  13. This is where I got the plans for mine. It's coming along nicely. I have some pics to post in my thread but I don't have time tonight. Good plans and you can modify them as you go to suit your likings.

    But if'n you don't get it fingered out, I'll come get it and worry FOR you:)-LOL
  15. I would guess the welding shop will fill it with water and then cut it later - like they do gasoline tanks.

    Any welders out there?

    Shouldnt cost too much to build. I just got a free tank from a local propane company today. They have alot of them and told me I could come back for more. Got a 300 gal one. Good luck with yours.

    I filled mine with water several times and let it sit in water for about a year.
    That was because it took me that long to get around to starting it.
    It was open to the air through the fill and vent holes the whole time.

    I did let a little water out just before I cut it and yeah I was a little tense but it went smooth.

    The next time I do it I will fill it with water a couple of times and then fill it with exhaust gas from a good running engine.

    It can be dangerous and use caution. Now mine is a tank that was open to the air for decades before I cut it. I would use more caution on a newer tank but I will do it again.

    Be smart and make something others are to timid to attempt![​IMG]
