Needing help in KC area.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if there might be someone on here from the Kansas City area, that could build me a few charcoal baskets, and a couple of grill racks for these smokers I have. I will try to get measurements tomorrow when it is hopefully not raining. I need something really inexpensive, but descent quality.
Thank you,
Jeff Z

Sorry, haven't gotten those measurements yet. Haven't been feeling real well, I may actually end up going to the ER in the morning. I'll get back to this as soon as I can.

Dang man, hope you arnt in to bad ah shape. If you have the material I have a heavy gauge sheet metal brake like 1/8" on 20" wide. If there for the fixer uppers I would say bend the basket and use stainless tie wire on the corners and go with it.

Me too, not sure exactly whats wrong, just feeling really backed up, and nothing I've tried has worked to flush me out. lol
If I could just find a couple full sheets of expanded metal, I could probably do it myself. I just don't seem to either know where to look, or exactly what to look for.

Number 9
3/4" works pretty good. Stainless is best but not necessary, mild steel is fine, just not as fancy.

Is No 9 the size of the holes? I seen some SS expanded 48"X 96" X 1/8", on CL for $65? Too thin?

I picked up some expanded steel at Westlake/Ace off 7 highway in Olathe.  I never could find any at Home Depot, so a smaller hardware store may be your best bet for small purchases.

On this I could be wrong but I think the No 9 is referring to the thickness that is left after the metal sheet has the slits cut in it and then expanded.


I will call tomorrow and check price and also ask what the No 9 referees to.


In your post, if they are calling the thickness of the sheet 1/8, then sure that's plenty thick. But you need to know how large the diamond holes are.
