Before you drill your side holes, make sure you've got the appropriate hardware lined up first. My plan was to use 1 1/4-inch black pipe, then use fittings that would snug up, airtight, to the inner and outer walls. Simple, right? Well, black pipe's diameter is smaller at the ends, so it only threads on so far. So the simple solution was to add washers, right? Wrong, I couldn't find washers big enough to fit on the pipe, so the fabricator has to make me some.
Yes, our projects are progressing similarly. But I'll be stalled for a while, until the welder gets done with some stuff.
Keep up the good work. Don't let The Warden get too much supervision on your project!
Here's another picture of my hole... a new blade does wonders.
I put some black on my door, I also riveted a small sheet of steel on the inside of the bottom since it was a little rotted. All is good now I'd say.
My hinges we emblems needed some love. I couldn't get all that dang green paint off them emblems so I'm going to paint them some other color... any ideas?? I already have red and blue paint.
Here's the black pipe and fitting I'm going to use as vents
There's the progress so far. The warden said its time to be done playing for tonight.
Yeah, lol... My exhaust hole... I guess that doesn't clear much up either.
Tkish, while you were out of town, I sneaked over to your house and finished your fridge/smoker build for you. You're welcome.
Oh, by the way, I might have left a tool or two sitting out, and I might have forgotten to tidy a few things up. Sorry 'bout that.
I shoved some insulation in the door today and laid down the sheet across it. I'm actually pretty pleased with myself seeing as the first piece of metal I ever cut was the piece I put in the bottom of this door. Next I will probably cut the hole for the burner in the bottom. I can't decide. Sorry for the lack of updates this month!
It seems only one of many of my pictures uploaded. iPhone fail I guess. My wife asked me if this thing was going to be done by my sons birthday in July so I think that means I have permission to finish it? Maybe I'm wrong but you never can tell with the ladies... I'll upload some more pictures next time I get to work some.
