    Regardless of how your drum is designed, there will have to be a point at which the side and lid of it are crimped together. If you grind through the both of them, the lid will have to become separable.

    Get us a close up pic of the bead, lid, side, and that which you have already ground.

    We'll get you fixed up.

    I think the only problem with that approach is once you take away that top part of the crimp, you may lose the capture point and your lid might fall into the drum unless you fabricate something that will allow it to hang...

    Here is a diagram I found on another site...

    I always ground the side so the lid would still be usable.

    Nice diagram, I want to use your method so I can use the lid...I have one now that has a weber lid on it, but I want it to look like a true barrel smoker, so if I can get the lid to stay on and keep a tight seal im all for it.....so for the side do you just grind directly on the side of the lip and if so how much do you grind before it becomes noticable?????

    Ok I looke dat your pix and now I am really confused. I thought you wanted to know how to remove the lid from a tight head drum by grinding it. Your pix show the lid of a removable top drum. What are you trying to grind off?

    The lid pics I sent you is NOT a removable top. It came off of a closed head. I cut the lid off with a angle grinder.

    I was using it (after I took it out of the garbage) as a test lid. to see if I could find the seperation in the lip.

    That is why I want to know how to get it off saving the lid and lip so I can use it for a possible air tight seam.....If by look at the pics you can tell me where the heck I need to start to see if I can get the welded/crimped part seperated.

    Thanks again
