  • What can I do with two 250-gallon propane tank cylinders (end caps removed) ?

    They're 30" in diameter and 70" long with 1/4" wall thickness. The ends are cut flat but a little grinding here and there wouldn't hurt. Looking for ideas.

    Weld plate to the ends and turn them into barbeques/smokers?

      Add axles and drive gears, seal the ends, fill with water or sand, and make a heavy duty power roller (steam roller?)

        Weld them into a 140 inch long tube, stand on end and cast into a concrete base. Have two pipes cast into the bottom also- one will terminate at the bottom, the other will have a pipe section rising up the inside to perhaps 8 or 10 feet. Paint the inside with a good sealer, then fill with good sized round rocks, then water. Make a top for it and insulate the whole thing. Run water through it until it runs clear. Now you can use it as a thermal mass. You can heat water with a rooftop collector and pass it through it, and you can use that water for showers and doing dishes.
        I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

          You can make pontoons. Just like some local boys.

              They are a lot more fun with the ends still on them.

                  They would make a nice culvert under a road.

                      Turn them into a couple of stills, open a small bar, and retire.

                        Cut them around at 2 foot marks and sell the as camp fire ring. They go for $100 each out here in the mid west.

                          Cut the rings a bit more narrow and make heavy duty he-man hula hoops!
