 Today, while we are still waiting for prices and quotes from the last of our building merchants to come back to us, a new Incinerator was constructed!!

It was made using an old oil barrel which had already been made into an incinerator,but it had been a struggle to keep it going for long jobs as the ash would fill the barrel up and we couldn’t get it out as it didn’t have any holes in the bottom!

So, taking this bit of spare time, and using lengths of 10mm reinforcing bars, welded together a grid of closely spaced bars for the drum to sit on and then raised the whole thing up 300mm on legs to allow the ash to fall out and move it out of the way.

The bottom of the oil drum was sliced out completely and then the barrel turned up and spot welded to the new iron grate in a couple of places to hold the whole lot together.

This weekend, it looks as if it will be wet so that would be our chance to try out this new piece of equipment to help with keeping our site clear of rubbish!!
