    So I ended up with the saturday of the museum fund raiser off. At 10 am I decided to give building a Hang/Hank Drum a try. Drove to Home Depot and bought a new unfilled 20 Lb. Propane tank and a couple of flap sander discs. Hacked off both end rings and sectioned 7" from the center of the tank. Cut a 5 1/2" circle around the center where the valve screwed in. Found a pattern on the web for cutting the note tabs. Cut them out and sanded every burr smooth. Welded the halves together. A little more smoothing and done. Next was the wire scorpion, Approx, 9' of wire and some polishing and still had time for a shower. Stuff was a hit and I got many complements and thank you's from the staff.
    Scorpion $65
    Spoon bugs $45
    Stork $105
    Butterfly $60
    Drum $60
    Plus we bid and won several items totaling $330 dollars.
    So the museum made a great haul and fun was had by all.
    By the way If anyone believes in carma, I lost my wallet today at a 7-11. Got it back.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not impressed at all cuz I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. An explanation of what it is or maybe even one of those things called pictures would help a bit I think.

    I see nothing there that looks like a modified 20lb propane tank.
