    Garbage Incinerator

    Another of 41 incinerators completed today. Main body is 6ft. tall.Feature a 24" X 24" door reinforced in body & inside od door to stop warping. Holes in end are for round bars to make the grate. Also a full width cleanout door on bottom. Project is 11 guage material & uses 3- 4 X 8 sheets. No burning allowed in towns anymore so these all go to farm or acreage people.Works much better than a barrel because garbage stays dry & a piece of expanded metal in the top of chimney stops half burnt papers from blowing across your yard.

    I would be tempted to smoke some hams in that thing.
    If your going to be smoking hams while incinerating garbage, I don't think I want me some.

    It doesnt have to be very thick, when i was a kid, my dad made one out of a barrell. worked very good I just got tired of splitting wood. [heated with wood in the house too] He built a log splitter after I went in the Marines

    looks really cool.
    Put a taller chimmney on it and you could heat your garage with it [wood] of course.

    Oops! Kinda worded that wrong didn't I . No actually the total we have made is 41. It actually takes most of a day to complete each one.

    We just sell them locally, within a 60 mile radius.Sheets are seconds so that keeps price down a little.We sell them for $595.00 in Canuckbucks
    thats realy cool. every time i make some thing i can never finde some one willing to pay for the time and effert to build it by hand. every one would rather buy the chepo import stamped out crap and just get a new one when it falls apart. so they think i should do it by hand and get the same low$ price as wally-world. it looks like your version is much nicer than the garbage they sell.
    at $600 it would pay for its self prity quick in saveings. we save several cans a week out of our bill by burning, at $15 a can that adds up fast.
    thanks for sharing i been thinking about building some thing similer but never have the extra $$( extra $$$ like that ever happens)i'll have to kep my eye out for some sheets next trip into the steel shop.
    like i realy need another project, i have too many already on the to do list. seems like it just keeps growing.

    I need to build something like that for getting rid of cardboard. Especially when it gets dry around here, don't want to set the yard on fire. Put a mesh over the burn barrel, that works ok but not great.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the compliment. All we are using is a piece of expanded metal about an inch down on the inside from the top of chimney.When it it is full of cardboard there are definitly sparks that escape but it stops large pieces from exiting & floating across yard.
