European Motor Works or RIMCO.
Getting them packaged right is most of the battle.

Be aware you are not saving money going down that path, the new EMW jugs are also not bad from all accounts.
The potential advantage is the heat cycled/aged jugs should stay round better, as well as wear better..

Also note most motorcycle shops can bore/hone free standing iron jugs, or know a machine shop that can.
I, for one, regularly embrace our new robot overlords, as I am the guy fixing the robots...

Piledriver,
I will check with EMW and RIMCO. Thanks.
Good thought on the bike shops, didn't think of that.
