My Latest Project

Here is my latest project, a replacement for our burn barrel. I made this because a 55 gallon drum usually lasts about 6 months at best, and it gave me a reason for getting the 160P (at least for my wife :roll: )

I made it out of 1/8" steel plate, with an expanded metal grill in the bottom, and a drawer to catch the ashes. Notice the lifting holes I cut with the Plasma, so much easier than drilling, and cleaner and quicker than the O/A torch.

Very nice Ed,
If we could burn here I would be copying your design. The 160P is sure a nice unit isn't it.

Where I live, we don't have garbage collection. The township brings a couple of dumpsters in to their stockpile area every Saturday where you can take you trash, but we sort ours and only take what we can't recycle compost or burn ourselves.

I was messing around with the Plasma Cutter yesterday, and cut out this pig. The wife thought it was cute so she is keeping it as a paper weight.
