Indestructible Burn Barrel

Introduction: Indestructible Burn Barrel

About: Just a normal guy trying to make it in life .Good paying job but mindless sometimes .I enjoy making things in my garage to keep my mind going .. Its fun making something new but its more fun taking something…

I purchased this air compressor with a blown motor for $ 20.00.

Step 1: Remove the Motor From the Tank

Step (1) First thing i had to do was to remove the motor and pump from the tank.

Step 2: Layout the Line

Step(1) i measured down from the top from the weld 8 inches all the way around the tank.

step (2) make a cutting line with a black marker..

Step 3: Cutting the Top Off.

step(1) using a 4 1/2 in grinder with a thin cut off disk i cut off the top of the compressor.

Step 4: Remove the Bottom Plug

Step (1) remove the 2 '' pipe plug from the bottom of the compressor . This helps air to get into the tank and for drainage.

Step 5: Drilling Holes

Step (1) i marked out 3 holes every 10 inches in four different spots around the tank .

step(2) i drilled all holes with a 5/8 drill bit.

Finished and ready to use .

    So, you have a collection of aluminum engine blocks to melt down and a silver mine? :-)
