Thanks your the compliments!
That's the mark of a craftsman vice a rod burner. Anyone can puddle metal and grind and buff. A man who can modify to make the design better is hard to come by. I am no welder never burned a rod but I have ground a few stringers and bevels and fought a few lineup clamps in my time and I even know a nickel lace job when I see one. There is a big difference.
The biggest problem I ever saw was knowing when to back away, roll 'em up and put the mind into neutral....LOL
yeah I really enjoy it. I could honestly leave my welds alone and they would be nice clean "stack of dimes" as they call them but I really like the smooth corners. my edges on the firebox and cook chamber are only ones I buff smooth tho. the rest stay as they are.
