I recommend using 1 1/4" conduit you can buy at any home improvement store. Drill
3/8" holes at 3" centers on one end.
A 5/16" x 2" bolt and wing nut will couple the leg with the barrel band and prevent separation when moved or knocked over.
Build your own feeder with any 55 gallon drum, plastic or metal with the Boss
Buck Barrel Band system. Easily installs in minutes around the bottom of the
barrel. The welded tab supports help position , and support the drum inside
the band system. Our band system allows you to mount the feeder legs without
drilling holes in the drum. This causes moisture problems over time. The square
tubing legs except pipe from 1 1/4"ID and larger. For professional results
on your home made feeder use Boss Buck Feeder Parts.
Truly the Cadillac of leg systems! Double HEAVY DUTY tension plates allow band to be extra tight! Holds up to 600 lbs. Made for 55 gallon barrels.
*Note: The Barrel Band System comes with three 20" legs. As shown in picture.
