last summer, i bought six 55 gallon drums from a local scrap metal yard (the 55 gal. drums had been used to store apple juice concentrate). i "cherry-picked" the six straightest drums i could find w/ lids that fit snugly.
a good buddy cut 1" square metal tubing into 20" lengths and bent the tubing to create leg attachments for the 55 g. drums. he welded 3 leg attachments on each drum and i used 8 foot 1 1/4" metal tubing for the tripod legs.
we cut a hole in the bottom of each drum depending on style of "electronic spinner" (center spinner and side shooter feeders). i bought the cheapest moultrie spinners and kenco straight shooter from wal-mart and haven't had any problems with either.
the 55 gallon drum can hold almost 7 #50 bags of whole corn.
Just a tip: Check with your local newspaper for barrels. The colored ink they use comes in barrels. They are messy to clean out because the colored ink is kind of like a gooey paste, but the barrels are usually in good shape and have good lids.
