    Thanks that is a nice offer but to far away from me.
    I want all to know these have many uses.
    One cuts top off of one and put it as a lid on another. Very, very useful. Don't take up much space.
    Engine heads, parts, pumps, wire, dry storage of most anything. I deem them valuable for storage forever stuff. These are my copper collection and all my wire. They are hurricane proof, no bugs or critters either.
    Somebody should take them or the OP should repurpose them. Do not trash them. Left over parts make good oil drain pans, rain catchers, paint booths, duck ponds, etc.
    Here is my two

    The cement disks are not to hold lid on. Once lid is dropped on they never move. The Cement is for the cat to get traction to jump the fence, She is my critter getter.

    Yup, too far away from me too, but nice to see they are offered.

    I use these on the farm often, for all sorts of storage, but hadn't considered the method posted here.

    Great idea!
    O Lord, won't you buy me a diesel Humvee. My friends all drive Teslas, that won't work for me. Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from the DMV. So Lord, won't you buy me a diesel Humvee.

    Yes, I have found it to be sometimes difficult to just give good stuff away within SS.
    If I put stuff out to the street on "Heavy Trash Day" We have around here then every bit of it is gone within 30 minutes, even little bits of wire and old steel.
    Some stuff I must get rid of like toolboxes camping gear and things I give away locally.
    Stay tuned for the good stuff which I don't want scrapped like structural SS beams and pipe and maybe even the baby conex tool cabinet it rests on.
    I deep down in Florida but will make it worth the trip, stay tuned.

    Hard to believe that free super heavy duty plastic barrels are
    free for the taking, and NOT takin. Wish I was closer.

    I can't believe I don't want them. And I'm a pretty big pack rat.
