I think I'd find a better drum to start with. You're gonna spend more time and money fixing a leaking barrel than what it would cost to do over.

pin holes can be filled with a sheet metal screw with either a rubber washer on it or some permatex on the threads screwed into the hole. Just grind the sharp points off before you reach into the barrel

duct tape the outsides, masterseries it to fill those pinholes, and remove tape and paint it up. the masterseries will outlast the barrel....

SOLDER! sheet metal screws will leak as the parts cleaner attacks the rubber. Same os most epoxies that would be in cantact with the solution.

But if you solder it up, the solder will withstand the parts washing solution.

Use a shop plastic sink build yourself a platform to set your part on above the solvant. Hook it to a big swan neck faucet and run the drain with a screen in it and then have a pump inline leading to the faucet.





But if the drum is leaking i might be able to send you some old pipe coating we have at work for you to coat the whole inside of it with.

You guys are working way too hard at out smartin' each other to fix a leakin' drum, just replace it with something that doesn't leak!

You can buy a big galvanized wash tub pretty cheap at Home Depot. Why bother with the cut in half barrel with holes. Or you can get a good condition barrel pretty damn cheap or free. Call up anyone who's usiness uses drums of solvents, such as acetone ask for an empty. They will likely be glad to give you one.
