Blimey the edges of that look sharp, especially if you have little ones running around. Does it come with a free tetnus jab?

Not the sort of thing you buy if you have little ones.

Good price but I'll have to pass for 15 years. :-D

I know, with 3 under the age of 8, I never have the opportunity to get rid of any wood. :whistling:

using it tommorow nite will report back on how good it is (for desposing mil's lol)

milf's?

Why would you want to get rid of milfs?

Banned

err .. why not just have a bonfire

Good luck lighting that on a windy day. Can't beat an old fashioned brazier for burning waste IMO:

If you want the open basket design then this one is a little more expensive delivered & doesn't seem to have the same flesh slicing capacity as the Argos one:

Edit
Or this one is cheaper & delivered free by Amazon:

I wouldn't need the chainsaw, that one looks like adult size :thumbsup:

err .. it is for having a bonfire in a more controlled less messy way. With the tray at the bottom you can stand it on a patio - a basic bonfire would make a mess of a patio.

I have had these before - and they are great - but tend to be a bit small and rust very easily.

If you are getting rid of a old washing machine - remove the drum (which can take a bit of time) - ensuring it is a metal one and you remove all plastic bits - and the drum is made of stainless steel. Sit it on top of 3 bricks for stablity/air flow and you have a great wood burning device!!!!

NICE:thumbsup:, was wondering what i could use the drum for, i have dismantled the machine, used the concrete for footings for the shed, modified the sides, strengthened them and added a larger door for storage, sold the motor on a carb'y for a fiver, made a catapult for the eldest!! drum was my only big part left, sorted now, thanks, have some rep. :-D

B&M sell the same thing for £17.99, got one last weekend.

You've created an idyllic spot to sit out on a summers evening.
Well done you.

I use a 50 gallon drum with holes round the bottom,

Is that Mad Max in the ancient Toyota people carrier returning from the post apocalypse wilderness with fresh meat to roast on the washing machine drum ?

Would a 45 gallon drum work, as I don't have a 50 gallon drum??:-D:-D

Fabulous idea - gutted I didn't think of that when I bought a new machine! These cheap fire baskets from Argos are rubbish - we've gone through 3 or 4. Washing machine drum would be much sturdier.

Mine is waiting for its first use!!

no it'd go in as scrap metal so council tip would send for recycling lol

That looks brillant!

Let us know how it performs.

See you still have the pulley wheel attached. I removed mine because I didn't like the idea that it would rotate while I was poking at it (or er missus). Also I don't recall if the bearings were rubber/plastic - if they are they obviously will burn away so the stablity might be affected.

The drum will obviously discolour - a lot - but all washing machine steel drums are of a very high quality - because of it's original design use - and last a long time in bad weather. The temps is mine have been high but it has never distorted or burnt through. Get a BBQ grill tray to put on the top for your burgers. I also wrap potatoes in foil and place them on the top lip around the edge - turn them over every 15 mins - done in an hour - tasty!

The drum has a threaded rod coming out of the bottom if it which the pulley wheel is attached to. The rod whent through the bearing attached to the outer plactic drum so no movement at all the whole thing is very stable.

That could have worked better

I think I'll settle for a small firepit for my garden.

I would've thought the Burning Wood, Fire and Heat would have been enough of a warning to not touch it.
