i am not sure if i should post this in the classifieds, or in the DIY, but here goes.

i have 4 large medical grade stainless containers here. they were used for medical oxygen.



these containers hold about 25 gallons from weld to weld before the domes on the end.

i figured they could each make 2 fermenters holding 12.5 gallons each.
using the hoppers at toledo metal spinning(the 14 inch hopper holds about 6.5 gal)
it would make then 19 gallons each. taking the dome into consideration we can call them 20 gallon units.

i would like to talk to someone about a trade for these tanks in exchange for giving me one or 2 of the completed fermenters.

i have other materials i could contribute to the build such as cornys to cut to make openings in the top.




please let me know if there is any interest in this.

That has Yuri_Rage written all over it.

Good TIG welders are rare but one place to check is where people build custom bicycle,s motorcycles, and cars. There are a # of custom shops in PA, so if you spoke with one of the fabricators and explained what you're looking to do I bet he or she would help on a weekend for some end product beverages. Just a thought that might point you in the direction. Good luck.

i'm not that local. I can weld, but not good enough to say i'd make them for you. Good enough to try it myself and if i f*ck it up i wont worry about it. You wanna sell me one of those? What are the measurements? Estimated diameter? I'm going east next month (virginia) so i could be going through the area(ish)

Like i said, i can weld, but i'm afraid it would be way to much of a mess to say i could do it for anyone else. So if you decide to unload one of those for a decent price, lmk

they are 38" from weld to weld. estimate 4-5 inches for the ends.

hard to get a good measurement but the diameter is between 14 and 15 inches

Sorry, not an offer, but wrap a tape measure around the circumference and divide by 3.142 to get diameter.
Looks like it could be a very cool project.

Have you asked at your LHBS? You might be able to post an ad there.
