    Default Starting the UDS

    Well after a month of waiting I finally picked up my drum that I said I could get for $16 with removable lid. This place gets them in about one every month. I would have to say I think it is new. Perfectly clean inside and out. I purchased all of the hardware, racks, nuts and bolts. Went to the shop grabbed my power drills a few batteries some files drill bits wrenches channel locks you get the picture. I placed all the marks on the drum and put in the step drill bit to start drilling and my battery was dead. So I went to the shop got another---dead also I tried all four and all dead. someone had shut of my power on that side of the shop. I had to wait 30 minutes to charge them and then find out they are shot. But I purchased the lifetime warranty including batteries on all of my power tools now I just have to get to town and do that. I might pick up a corded power drill while I'm their. I will post picks later of the start and finish If all goes well I will be SMOKING by Saturday!!!!!!!!!
