    Anyone got a link for someone that will make a plastic welded box up? Preferably for 50p?
    Or where to get the sheets of plastic from?
    Like the plan Al and will look forward to the progress.
    "Wrighty" on YouTube does a lot on plastic if you want a look and he has just finished his second drum.

    Good luck and keep in touch with it as I love a bit of DIY.

    I have found those, thanks John and I am slowly going through the Wrighty vids. Trouble is he doesn't show anything in too much detail because he's trying to flog the plans.
    I liked his plastic welding vid, but when I priced up the sheets it was bloody expensive. Like £50 a sheet in something substantial like 12mm!
    I am sooo tempted to get a plastic welder but I need to do alot more research to get the right materials. I think Wrighty's latest one is 6mm sheets so that may well bring the price down to something more reasonable.

    Your right he doesn't show much,the welding looks easy enough and as you say the sheets are expensive then you have to cut them

    I had thought of making one for my grow on but have decided to make a seive like wrightys now as a small drum would cost nearly as much as a larger one
    All those bits are cheap enough from China dont know how they make them for that price.

    I did some digging. It's slow going. The ground is full of football sized flints, but it's progress.

    Oh dear.



    I had already ordered some insulation, so that went on today. I have a bit of perspex to make a lid tomorrow, but i need some more insulation and duct tape for the filter tubs.
