Picked up a few food grades with lining and DAGGUMMIT! Built a good long burning fire in it, layed it on its side and rolled it around to burn as much surface area as possible. Started working on removing what was left yesterday. Used my air grinder with sanding discs, cupped wire brush on my 4.5" grinder, sanding discs on my 4.5". Just when you thought you had a patch removed you see a last thin layer coming off. This is a job that will take several hours and accessories. Called my local sandblaster and they want $45/barrel for in and out blast another one didn't even want the job.
Hard to take on a UDS build and have over $50 in the barrel before you even put a thing in it, kind of goes against the basis of these things even though its only $50 bucks.

I don't care if the barrel contained a petroleum product or something else at least that WILL burn out. Damn no more liners, I hope the rest of you newbs heed this message Mad

HogFan4, call the blaster and ask if you can do a Que for blast swap Smile Also while you have them on the phone ask if they use steel shot, it comes in unlined barrels ask if they recycle them.

Guess it all depends on how much you want the Q.

Mine went from this:


to this:



after 6 hours of this:



To be honest, I'd do it again instead of taking the chance of eating petroleum or any other unknown substance that the barrel may have held.

Will do on the steel shots and as far as Que swap for work, I think I would rather pay the fee and eat the Que myself! Twisted Evil

Couldn't find any at the time, but I have located some about 35 min. away for $22 bucks. Time I drive both ways, purchase, cut the tops out (closed lids) probably not any better off money wise. I know I know I have a business oriented mind when it comes to expenses, only way to have a growing biz.
