I just acquired some 55 gal drums, unfortunately they were/are oil (gear and
hydraulic oil) drums so using them as water containers isn't really an
option.  My first thought is to try to make a solar water heater (cut top
off, put pipe in, weld top on, fill with water and paint it black).

Any other thoughts on how I could use them?

vertical axis savonius wind turbine, or a barbeque cooker?

Make musical instruments

Using a bowling ball, Concave the bottoms. Then using a punch pin
isolate eight bells in the concave bottom.  Cut barrel off to desired
length and temper metal.

Steel Drums!
