Here is where I am with the firebox.The guy working on the firebox says his guys cant bend 1/4" steel and would have to buy the steel, so I may have to go with 1/8" steel, which is free.
Pretty sure he is doing this for free, but don't mind paying to get it done right. If his crew is doing it for nada, I will have a lot of pork butt to do when this is finished...all the hard work can't go unrewarded!
I have him working a price on both.
1)1/8” steel doubled wall with 3 bends and ¼” plate welded on the back and ¼” plate steel for the access door. Four 2-1/2” holes spaced at 2-1/2” apart with a sliding damper below the coal bed shelf. Shelf rack 4” from bottom with an expanded metal grate for coal bed.
2)¼” steel single wall with ¼” plate welded all around and a ¼” plate steel for the front. Four 2-1/2” holes spaced at 2-1/2” apart with a sliding damper below the coal bed shelf. Shelf rack 4” from bottom with an expanded metal grate for coal bed.
Can 3/16” steel be bent?
Does it matter where the firebox door is? I would like to put it on the front not the side.
Hopefully I can some work done on it this weekend, while I’m smoking some jerky.
Look at this pic, does this look like it can be 3/16” steel or ¼” it has the bends in it.Can 3/16" steel and/or 1/4" steel be bent?
does anyone know who built this.
Input needed please
