Snowy, The tank had held Soybean oil...it took some Ajax and dawn to get it clean.

Those make nice fish tanks as well! Being in Minnesota with all those lakes you should get on that! Ol man just bought a couple cows at the sale barn. One was supposed to be 8 months or so. She dropped one of his better calves of the year the next day in the middle of a monsoon. Some guys have all the luck.

Interesting I'd like to see the deer stand. They are everywhere here and often people give them away. At most $30-40 a piece.

For a lot of applications, make sure the ones you get are food grade....and can be cleaned out easily
With no residue.
