55 Gallon Stainless Steel Drum, anyone want it?
« on: February 18, 2014, 12:02:46 PM »
I put/donated a 55 gallon stainless steel drum in the lab last night.  Anyone is welcome to use it on a project as they wish, it's up for grabs.
 
The drum was used to store off-road diesel before I bought it.  (I washed it out with soapy water so it's pretty clean, but could use another rinse I think)
 
SAFETY REQUIREMENT:  Because it was used to store a FUEL before, please rinse out/ wash/ ventilate the barrel BEFORE attempting to cut it (cutting makes SPARKS and I don't want anybody to take any risks).
 
Other than that, have at it!   :)     
 
Biodiesel reactor
Mobile pressure washing rig
Automatic bubble blowing machine (which I understand was done before by another member.)
Massive rock tumbler
Cement mixer
Make a DIY steel drum set
World's smallest pontoon boat
BBQ grill
Trash can
Furniture
Smoke ring cannon
Giant speaker
YOUR PROJECT......

It has a little road rash, but is still very pretty-pretty.  If buffed it'd gleam.  Lol

Is it appropriate/ possible to get a donation receipt for the drum? I paid for it and have no use for it anymore, if I can write it off (in addition to being the genesis of somebody's project), that'd be cool.

Ben, I think we can work out a donation receipt, but you'd have to check with our "accounting/treasury department"  :P  - Ian or Jamie (digitalman2112 or darkmoonsinger) to be sure.

email treasurer@familab.org to reach both of them.
