Been working and making some changes, My 16 year old son has taken to the welding seriously and I have let him do the most of it. He wants to build his own when we finish out of a 120 gallon to make some cash with.
I put 2 pieces of 6x6x3/8 angle in the firebox to hold the ash pan cenetered, This will also serve as my stand to hold up the grate. I got the drain in for the pan and the stack put on.
I will be removing the door catches I made and replacing them with toggle latches. I just didn't like them.
I don't know about a damper for the stack yet. I thought about a blast gate but the top of the stack will be to high on the trailer to reach.
I did not cut the doors low enough. I will be redoing those and dropping them down about 5 more inches to the cooking grate level. I also will remove the sliding door and will replace it with a 5 inch screw type on the door front and a 6 inch on the back side of the box so the air can get under the grate. So far I have spent about $100 latley on the build for metal and MIG wire, so far I am at $400.
Pics are on the next reply Im learning this stuff
