I have a 10g firestone keg which is pretty much useless. Nothing off the shelf fits and I don't feel like customizing it to work for serving. So I was thinking about fitting a 12" cone/hopper to the bottom with a dump valve and bolting legs onto the lip that forms the bottom.
I know toledo metal spinning makes the diameter I need but I was wondering if anyone else knew other companies. I found one but they're even more than toledo. I only need the sloped cone portion not really much in the way of volume since I tend to do 6g batches and this 10g keg should give me plenty of head space.
For the top I was considering just getting it sliced off and rounded or have a lip made on it. Then I would use a thick piece of acrylic/plexi with a routed channel for an Oring or something to seal. I could helicoil possibly a corny ball lock gas fitting and a lid blow off valve into the plexi. There'd be a setup for blow off also.
I'm sort of doing this more as a feeler post and to see if you guys know of other sources for some parts I'd need. I looked through Yuri's whole conical DIY but all the links are defunct now except toledo metal spinning.
I need to call a friend who used to run a machine shop. He has said to me in the past if I need any machining work to let him know because a friend owes his some favors. So the welding and such should be easy to get done as I can't weld stainless. My metal and heat skills go about as far as soldering with butane torch.
