What to do with IBC tote inserts?

Recommended Posts

I want to buy a half dozen iBC cages for firewood, but the only local ones I can find still have the plastic tank inserts. I assume they’re not too difficult to extract but what would I do with them afterwards? I can see myself haunted by their ghostly presences for decades, like rather static great white whales.

Ace tip Paul! I hadn’t thought of that geometry. Still only gets rid of 1/4 of ‘em though. 
Many thanks.

I think if you cut them on the diagonal ( from top corner to oppsite bottom corner ) you get 2x roofs and nothing left to dispose of .

Is there an echo in here? :D 

 

Anyway if you buy 6 IBC's and cut the roof of three in half you have 6 covers. You still have three left to dispose of.

Forget thinking about the roofs of the IBC for the moment . The IBC is baisicly a cube . Cut the whole cube from the LH top corner out through the RH lower corner . Now think about roofs again ...

And if you stack em two high you get back to my quarter figure. Best of all you do get this ghostly army of Chinese warrior statues protecting your soul. At Bealtaine they come to life and patrol the fences.
