Default Drum to construct 2 stage dust collection

I have a Jet 1 micron dust collector and would like to upgrade it to two stage. To do that I need a source for a 40-50 gallon drum with tight lid that can be removed. I already have a source for the pair of 4" nozzles.

Where could I look for one?

Thank in advance.

If you are near areas that grow fruit and berries there should be canning plants that get concentrated fruit from places like South America. It comes in 45 gallon drums with lids in steel or plastic. They sometimes sell them, especially the dented ones for a little more than the barrel deposit of $40 or so.

Oneida Air Systems. If you need it, they probably have it.

Maybe get a drum dolly as well. Those drums seem to get heavier as the years go by....

I used a large metal garbage can from Menards, and built the separator top using plywood and PVC elbows.

I got a 30gal grease drum from an auto repair shop. After they had it empty, I took it to a local carwash. The smaller size made it easier to use and handle when needing to be emptied. Made my own dolly to fit. 2x4....3/4 inch plywood....casters from Harbor freight.
We put the 'dust' in the flower beds. Because of the different types of wood, we don't use it in the garden. Newspaper and grass clippings between the rows of veggies keep the weeds down.

Be sure to post pictures of your system. Give the rest of us something to drool over besides your shop.

Uline requires the purchase of two barrels so Amazon with free shipping won the battle. Rockler had the two through barrel top nozzles. All ordered and should be working in a week. Should be a nice addition for under $100.

In Bakersfield, https://bakersfield.craigslist.org/for/6094781220.html

Make your own lid out of plywood, or have a sheetmetal shop fabricate one.

But because of space limitations I made mine using the orange 5 gallon buckets from Home Depot.
