    Rckcrwlr has that “where do I start look” (Roller)

    So a buddy dropped this off and said have fun.



    So where do I start?

    I guess get all the gas out?
    I saw a couple people that filled it up with water to ensure it was clean and then filled it when welding.

    Any suggestions on end spindles that I can fab an axle to for spinning?

    Any suggestion will be appreciated.

    This comes to mind... you DID ask where to start, didn't specify anything... :D

    EDIT: I guess you DID mention axles... none the less, tannerite comes to mind immediately for unknown reasons...

    I think I'd start with target practice. Lay it down out of the way, get far enough away from it, get your most accurate rifle, shoot into it from end to end. Should get rid of the gas.

    Bolt Flange Mount Bearings on each end there cheap and build a simple frame with shaft ends to fit inside the Flange Mount Bearings. 1" shaft size should work OK. Here is a picture of one they sell for like $11.00 on line.Click image for larger version.

    Drill out a 3/8" steel plate to matching the Flange Mount Bearing for bolts and big enough to weld to the flat Brackets welded to the tank now. You can tack weld them to the plate on the back. Then weld this plate to the tank. If I did not have a welder I would drill the tank to match the pattern and tap the holes for 1/2" bolts. Problem with this is distorting the bearing flange maybe breaking it unless it is supported under the flange where the bolt goes thru. They need a flat surface to bolt on to. Can't reach inside unless you want to cut hand holes and cover plate's over them. Then harder to seal for the water making it heavier to roll with. Let the Gas escape remove the fill valve from the tank. Then fill it with water to the top and dump it out to weld the ends onto the tank. Then all gas will be gone from the tank. Fuel tanks are different they have residue that can stay on the tank to go to flash point welding on the outside. That you do not want to do, all the fuel residue has to be removed using approved cleaners first. Propane is just a gas once the pressure is off it and let it out and flush the tank. Can be done sever ways. I like the water method cause I can see that it is empty with my eyes! Then make a handle for it that hooks to the ends with Cold Rolled Steel Rod to fit the hole in the bearing. Easy job couple hours work when you have all the parts.
