I've been scrouring the web and the yellow pages for a 30 gallon steel drum to build a gloryhole in. I've been unable to find anything locally and nothing seems to be less than 50 bucks online. Does anyone have any experience having dirt cheap steel drums shipped to them? Also, does anyone know where I might look in the yellow pages to find someone who carries 30 gal drums?

Back to the search I go...

Try Rural King store if in your area. they have them for about $20.00..
Quick lube place might have the 30 gal one cheap ?

I bought my 50 gallon drum by looking up Cooperage. The company I bought from is not at the location I went too (I happened to look at the beginning of the month) but is still in business
Acme Cooperage Co
(214) 692-1888
8080 N Central Expy # 930
Dallas, TX 75206
but this address is very respectable and the 9th floor is hardly likely to have barrels on hand.
They did not have 30 gallon drums But I asked for other choices and bought a new one, they had no used ones for more than the 50 from, still in business,
Dallas Steel Drums Inc
(214) 638-7027
2214 Singleton Blvd
Dallas, TX 75212
If it helps.

Also be aware that the 30 gallon sized drums are really tall for their diameter, so they may not be big enough for a glory.

A container that I've seen that I think would make a nice glory are stainless steel beer kegs. They are quite large in diameter for their length.
