    Most water coolers I have seen (Igloo, Rubbermaid, etc) have no vapor seal on the lid. That's why I went with the old (small) refrig.

    They can be picked up at the local thrift shop or want ads for nearly nothing. If you're close to a college, you can find them sitting on the lawn as the kids clean out their dorm rooms.

    I'd think an old discarded microwave would even be better than a water cooler.

    Go to Harbor Freight and get one rod tube for each type of rod you plan to keep. I get mine there and I live in New Orleans. I go through rods pretty fast, but they keep for a couple months in them, and unless you are doing code level welding with them you should have no problems. Open it, get a few rods out and close it right back up.

    Wireburner, if you had a choice between the microwave and the small refridgerator, go with the fridge! That seal is a LOT better than a microwave! Had another friend that did that and had a 40watt bulb in there lit all the time, worked GREAT for him! What Sundown III said, go by the college campuses on a Sunday!
