    Favour in Napier. Pot to boil stag head

    Tried to buy something big enough, can't find anything.

    Anyone local got a kerosene tin or similar they use for the job that I could borrow for a couple of days please?

    Most mechanics will have the odd empty 60l drum kicking around, slightly scaled down 204l. ATF/DX3 usually comes in that for smaller shops

    @GWH

    If you get stuck I'm sure there will be a steel 20l lacquer drum available at work

    Will just need a bit of a clean out.

    Cheers

    I use an old stainless steel kitchen sink. Perfect length and width. Easy to set up on some fire bricks and slip a gas burner underneath.
