  1. Thanks RadioGuy.

    I had a pretty good day on the build.


    Finished the outside skin of FireBox.


    Had to cut outter skin to fit openings..... this is gunna be inlet to WarmerBox

    on top of FireBox.


    Also had to fit around air intake to FireBox.
     

  2. Did all my notching by means of grinder with cutting disk today.


    Wasn't quite square so I had to tapper. Marked right side a 1/4 inch

    to nothing to where it met the corner of where inlet to warmerbox is.......


    A nice dry fit. Had alot of welding todo on this. Was made in three pieces

    to the back. Forgot to take pictures up close of finished welds. Mental next

    time!
     

  3. One last view of work from today on Firebox.

    Now this is the extension I was explaining yesterday........


    I just put a couple tacks on it, just so I could get a visual of how it would look.

    I'll be taking it down to square and dress it up, it was late in the day

    and ran out of time.


    I like the way it will give me a flat door and I'm thinking to have the door

    hinge on right hand side. Much better than lifting to open!

    Lookin' good! My neck now hurts a little bit though ;)
     
  7. I started puttering around with Pipe Burners.


    Started with sketching on some scrap so I could get a visual and also

    put together a stock list...... Doing a 24" burner in each CC and

    a 16" for log lighter. Using 1 " pipe


    Cut some 4x4 1/8" for base plates, come up with using 3/8

    bolts to use for mounting clamps.


    Tacked bolts on plates. I started drilling 1/16" holes in the pipes but didn't

    take pictures of......... yet.

    Hope the pictures are aligned better for peoples viewing! I'm not the best at this computer

    stuff ! LOL

  9. Pipe burners!!!!  one of my favorite parts of the build!!!!![​IMG]
     
  10. Got a little bit done today. All the ports are drilled on the two for the

    cooking chambers, and I sliced  the ones for the log lighter.


    It really was touchy drilling with a 1/16th bit but I got the hang

    of it. About halfway through I remembered someone suggesting

    to give each location a prick punch...... Excellent advise for starting

    the hole!


    I welded the two CC pipes to the stands.


    The log lighter is going to be tight on room between bottom

    of box and where to place logs. I'll have to wait till I see

    the box up close(at different location.

  12. On the drilling of the 1/16" holes, I use a piece of PVC pipe that the iron pipe will fit snuggly in and clamp it in the vise. Drilling through the PVC keeps the bit from trying to walk. It does not allow me to space the holes with the indexer, but I can judge good enough just slidding the pipe through the PVC, and once you get enough holes drilled you can start using the old holes as a guide. And my index does not go 48" anyways, so Id have to reset the pipe no matter what.

    Just an ideal for anyone that needs it. It saves me a lot of time drilling these.
     
  13. Nice lil tip Ribwizzard, thank you. All my holes are drilled but will toss it in memory bank. Any input on a method

    for lighting the burners? I'm thinking a few possibilities..... 1 - installing a track that the base plates can fit in, have

    a rod that I can pull burner to the side, cutting a small access door ( 3x3) so I can light and push burnner back to

    center........ 2- maybe installing a sparker...... any suggestions are welcomed![​IMG]
     
  14. Id install a sparker, less work and way more convenient.  I've burned way too many eyebrows off lighting with a lighter.  The battery powered ones are real nice. I think it looks cool too.
     
  15. Thanks, I will go with a spark starter. I've checked out kits at Lowes. The past week I've been doing a few things, but I can't download pics off phone

    for some reason. First I made a couple chimney stacks so I can vent off from the bottom cooking grates, made rectangular so I can run them interior

    and not looses a whole lot of cooking space. I refered to a ductulator for proper sizing of 5 inch round, come up with 3 by 8..........

    I'll run stacks up to top of cook chambers and tap off those with the 5inch round I already fabricated.

    Also I've also gathered and fabbed stock for a damper system for the air intakes on the Fire Box. I had a friend cut and groove 3 1/2 inch round solid rod

    into 1/4 inch pucks, these will fit over the pipes on bottom to adjust intake. Then I cut some lengths of 1/4 inch rod and some pieces of pipe to receive

    rod and allow rod to spin. I'll tack pucks to rod, weld pipe pieces in location to allow rod to spin and act for dampening......... I'll dill and tap pipe and use a wing

    top bolt to lock in place. Sorry for blind description, can't download pics and just wanted to keep going.

  17. Most of the time they use thread rod and either the " puck" is drilled and taped or a nut is welded on .

    If you zoom in, you can see how these were done.

  18. I think your talking about the smoke stack damper? I was describing air intake pipes on the Fire Box. I have 8  2" pipe stubs for air intake.

    I'll have 4 caps (pucks) tacked to the rod on each side to control air intake, and I'll use wing bolt to lock them in place...... Though now ya have

    my mind working since you mentioned threaded rod and nut. I'm also having my buddy make 3 Ventori's (propane/air mixing chamber) for my pipe

    burners. This one is gunna be impressive in my eye! He's making it out of 3inch octagon solid brass. I'm looking forward to taking plenty of pictures

    of this lil project! Hopefully
     
  19. no fire box, there are three on the bottom, zoom in

    I'll have to get a better pic of one, the more you unscrew them the more air you get.
     
  20. I understand what your saying. On mine, I'll see if I can come up with a way accomplish  the ability to tweak the closed position of the dampers. But seeing

    that I have 4 intake pipes on left and 4 on right that will be controlled by one rod pivoting on each side. Also there is an intake in the rear 7" by 3" with a slide

    gate damper. With all that,do you see a need for the ability to adjust it by means of the threaded rod and nut?
