Good afternoon all! It's a beautiful day in KY. What are your plans for the wonderful (and so far sunny) one?
Thanks for the information on that barrel, AW. And also Rattlesnake! I'm kind of partial to my face, wrinkles and all... It's the only one I've got and I'd prefer to keep it where the good Lord put it...
@ Nope, Kentucky Barrels in Junction City Kentucky (which is 4 miles south of Danville Kentucky) on U.S. 127 sells the used whiskey barrels which by law cannot be reused and whiskey must be stored in new white oak barrels. They do have a web site. Probably expensive though. In the old days, folks "bled" the used barrels by putting water in them and setting them out in the sun and getting a cheap, watered down whiskey. I tasted it once but I am not a bourbon drinker so I would not know if it was good or bad. To me it was bad. LOL
For some History, Danville is where the Constitution of Kentucky was established and is where the first surgery in Kentucky was performed. It is also where the roses for the Kentucky Derby are freeze dried. And just south of there is the home of Isaac Shelby, the first governor of Kentucky. Constitution Square is an Historic landmark that is a nice place to visit.

<quoted text>BE CAREFUL!! A friend of mine got his FACE blown off last year, while attempting to cut the top off a metal barrell. Suggest filling the barrell with water beore cutting on it. Also, a concrete saw is an amazing tool when cutting metal or plastic, and is MUCH faster than a torch.
Thanks, but this is a wooden whiskey barrell with steel bands, so you have to screw all five bands down to each wooden slat, then cut the barrel in half lengthwise. I think the end result was worth the effort.

<quoted text>Well, I was here WELL before page 250. And, I don't have Nuts. Maybe you should tone down that language and know who you are talking to. I haven't seen ANYTHING credible from any REAL scientists about earthquakes, the weather and birds. Mods here know about the spam posts and they are taking them down.
It's a good idea, since it's NOTHING to do with any birds.
So, if you haven't seen it, then it doesn't exist? Don't attack me, and I won't retaliate. For your information, many "credible" sources within the scientific community believe methane gases, released during earthquakes, are the cause of worldwide mass deaths of birds and fish. Just because you didn't see, or don't believe it, doesn't mean it is or isn't the correct theory.

So it was methane gas released during earthquakes that killed hundreds of birds in western Ky. Glad we finally have that cleared up. End of story. This should be the last comment on the bird thread. Good deal.

could be someone transporting chemicals to make meth in the water. and the birds drink the water. if not drug-related chemicals it's still definitely in the water.

I have wondered, were there ever any official scientific study results released after some bird autopsies? Reckon I'll do some Googling. Sounds like some copy/paste is gonna happen.

To my question that is, not why the birds died.

Methane gas is released over volcanos. Guess all the birds died there too. You didn't see the birds die, nor did you do any little bird autopsies, you just read about it online. REAL RELIABLE.

Pete, your advice is well taken and good advice. I may be wrong, but I believe that Hempburn was talking about cutting a wooden barrel since he referenced cutting bands and removing screws. When I am cutting thinner metal such as a barrel, I prefer using a SAWZall with a metal cutting blade simply beause I have one and interchanging from wood to metal blades is quick. It is a slower cut than a cocrete saw though, but few people own concrete saws unless they are in the business and it is not economical to rent a concrete saw for a small project.
A skill saw with a metal cutting carbide blade will work well also. I rarely need to cut anything that would require a torch. If cutting sheet metal such as metal roofing, one can use a skill saw with a normal wood cutting blade installed on the saw backwards.
Your advice would also apply to anyone trying to weld an old automobile gas tank. I know of one that exploded that had been empty for over 20 years.
Those are definitely good pointers as well, especially on light materials.
