Grainger sells them as new. Not cheap. 49E drums have the gasketed lid.

come to think of it ... one of my first 55 gallon feeders was one that had the solid lid with bungs. About 4 inches from the top, it had been cut with a torch or cutoff saw (to form a lid) and the barrel (non-lid portion) was slightly bent in in several spots where the lid would slide down over the barrel to a very snug fit. Worked like a charm (until mesquite creek in northern Burnet county got to flood stage and the feed headed to the gulf of Mexico).

in other words, no need to buy a barrel with banded or snap ring type lid ... all DIY.

I've got some empty 30 weight oil drums, you can have on one condition, don't get a torch anywhere near them. I've had one friend killed and another injured severely (Lost a leg and part of this hand). both thinking they could safely cut the drum with a torch.


Yes! A Weatherby does kill them deader.
