    Gotcha. you would just grind on the top edge of the seam. Once you grind through the lid on the top of the seam, there will be nothing there to hold it to the drum and you can lift it off.

    the easier solution IMHO is to buy a reconditions removable head drum.

    what about grinding the side of the edge so I can reuse the lid?....anybody else with suggestions, I have found a great place to use with great barrels (Olive Oil no liner inside ready to season with a simple burnout...)

    But I guess maybe I can't have it all my way.

    Yeah, side of top. If you drop below that, the lid won't release.

    just to make sure before I do it, the lip portion....grind the middle of the side, or upper top portion of the side and will you start seeing the separation enough know im doing it right...

    Middle side should be fine.

    cool thread cheers, got access to couple of closed head barrels and without cheap weber spares in uk wondered what to do for good fitting lid.

    was gonna try low cut and a flange but have got a tan coloured liner so thought lid might warp with a burnout.

    hope this method does the trick, thanks again.

    SOmeone has posted a pic and a diagram or two of how to grind the corner off the fold on a tight head drum. the result is that the lid will fit tight back on the drum.

    does anyone remember who and where that is?
