Yes, that's a great idea. A really good one with a great quality cap and bung plus petcock, silver soldered and all for $30-$40.00. How about if you do it and you can make a bundle of money? After all, it's just a can, right? Make a bunch, get really good at it and then let us know how soon we can place our orders. I think you would lose interest quickly in this as a get rich quick scheme. It is interesting to me how the same people who get paid well for showing up at work think artisans should do quality hand work for a couple bucks an hour. It is why I don't solicit commissions to make tanks. If someone asks and wants one of mine then we can talk about it. If you want a really cheap tank stick with kit ones, found ones or make your own, but don't expect someone to make a quality, labor intensive tank for you for next to nothing and then stand behind it.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
