Hey folks - if anyone is in need/want/desire of an elusive Stainless Steel barrel I've got a lead on some in the Portland, OR area.  Won't last long!  $300 for a soild head, $400 for a snap-ring style head.  55 gallon.

I'm NOT selling these, but I'd be happy to get one and hold it for you, etc.  And I'd tell you where they are but I'm wondering if I should grab one or two and I don't want you (yes YOU!) to buy them all before I decide!!

Hi Eliot;    Nice find!  Tad more expensive than I would like... but you pay for quality!

For me my plain steel barrels have a beautiful flame paint type patina.  I'm sure the stainless would develop one as well.

If you decide that you just have to have one... spend the extra money and buy the removable lid barrel.  
Being able to check your riser in moments is a wonderful thing!

They are spendy, but then you don't have to do the whole "remove the paint" thing.  I think they are thicker walled too, but that's just an impression not a fact.

The stainless barrel in the Wheaton Labs Fisher Price house has its own golden patina that I think is quite attractive - I personally find it more attractive, especially in the center of the room.
