I built that fire box because some folks do not like you to build a fire on the ground, or on cement, or on asphalt. I have a place for it on the back of my cook wagon. I just stand it up, walk it over to the right place, let it fall, pick up the other end and slide it into place. I keep telling myself that each year it gets lighter because of rust. I think it will last as long as I do. My ISP is having problems and was told yesterday that it will be at least 2 weeks before they can send a repairman. I will post a pic when they get me up and running at home.
As for the iron, thanks. That is just a small portion of what I have accumulated over the years.
It is Spring here in the desert Southwest and goats are kidding, bees are buzzing, etc., so I better stay home and tend to some of that.
