Good, sturdy steel bucket.

I sanded the inside and coated with epoxy for a water-filter sanding apparatus I am building to make a dustless sanding system. I could not take the chance of it rusting so I added an epoxy barrier coating.

The plastic bucket I was using collapsed due to the vacuum pressure.

The bucket shipped super fast and arrived undamaged.

When I sanded the inside of the bucket, there is a coating inside the bucket for rust resistance - not sure how it would have fared though.

I purchased both the bucket and the lid for use with a dust deputy dust collecting kit in my woodshop! and it works great. If you try to use the dust deputy with some flimsy buckets, like the cheap ones from home centers, the buckets can collapse in from the suction. This bucket is build very sturdy and I had zero problems with it holding up to the suction of the dust deputy!

Thin walled steel bucket that serves my purpose very well, which is storing acetone that I use to degrease gun parts prior to cerakoting. When paired with the "Vestil PAIL-STL-RI Steel Open Head Pail with Handle, 5 gallon Capacity, Black" it safely stores my acetone and keeps it from evaporating away. Also if you purchase the "Chem-Dip Professional Parts Cleaner Basket (0950)" the basket handle is a little too tall to put the lid on without modifying the handle on the basket. All things being equal this pail serves my needs very well.

I had a hard time convincing myself that it was necessary to spend over $15, upwards of $30 for a galvanized bucket to put ashes from our wood stove in. This pail is PERFECT! some complained about the structure of it and that it rusted. I don't mind, it's just for ashes :)

Bucket is very sturdy and rigid, great for a "bucket bag/organizer". Just wish the inside was coated with some sort of clear coat, to avoid exposure to the elements and possible rust. I used a clear coat spray paint to do this. Overall a great investment, especially since metal bucket options on Amazon are quite limited at this time.

Used to hold garbage liquid in a tradeshow booth. Looks great. Inside is NOT rustproof, and surely outside will rust over time. But outside looks really nice and clean out of the box, and the price is great. Low cost, high value.

I bought this pail with a steel lever-lock lid with the intention of making a Faraday enclosure that is easy to open and close. I lined the inside of the pail with a thin adhesive sponge. I am amazed how much electronics I can put inside of it. Without doing any serious Faraday testing, It seems to work. A very easy and relatively inexpensive way.
