and being a smart man, i bet you did the leg welding BEFORE the drum had a fire going in it!!!

unlike some silly boys who decided they could move a hot drum - with fire burning - 1. to a different location and 2. tip said fire into another drum

I'm going to make a pot belly fire place for my veranda out of an 18kg gas bottle, they're the perfect size :D

Washing machine bowls make great fire drums with some legs welded on them, the best ones come out of the old hoover models 720, 820,920 series, they are stainless with a nice solid stainless ring around the top, they are a prick to get out, you need to remove the plastic agitator then undo the 2 bolts, then you usually have to apply a bit of heat with a gas torch or oxy to loosen up the corrosion then with a bit of force they pop out.

An inverted Kenworth brake drum with legs welded on will last forever, and holds plenty of heat.

For camping/drinking in the winter months I've got the inside part of a very old washing machine - it's not real big, but has lots of holes through it and throws out a heck of a lot of heat.
