Fire Basket

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

haven't been on for a while but can someone give some advice on where i can get some EML for a fire basket, looked everywhere but can't find any reasonably priced.


Just started on my UDS and looking to get this project done by end of july. 


will post pics later.

Well Hello.  I thought you dropped of the earth.  Glad to have you back!  When I first read I thought you were looking for Elm.  th_dunno-1[1].gif  So after a reread I assume you mean what we call expanded metal back in the States ( another translation confusion ).  What I have found for such things is that many metal dealers want you to buy a whole sheet but that well know auction website offers pretty good deals for small quantity orders.  Hope this helps.  Glad to see you again.  Keep Smokin!

I'm in the same boat Smurf. They have some full sheets at our local scrapyard but it's quite a light gauge, probably ok for grill racks but maybe too thin and too small a mesh size for a fire basket. I'm gonna call by a fabrication shop nearby and see if they have any offcuts, got to be worth a case of beer to them ?
