Wanted to try my hand at some welding, first time, so not the prettiest job..lol. A buddy of mine offered a free chunk of 1/4"x8"x8" tube and I figured why not make a gravity feed out of it . Just hope the damn thing works ok . I actually had a lot of fun with the torches and welder (old AC Miller). Funny thing...I was scouring the scrap yards for some 1/4 steel plate and could find nothing. My buddy says lets try the fabrication place around the corner, I'm thinking yeah right, they are just going to hand me a hunk of plate steel for next to nothing. So he and I wander through the shop and ask the supervisor. The guy pulls out a nice new chunk of 1/4 plate 28X38 from the cutoffs rack and says $10, plus gives me some 1/2 bar to boot! Never hurts to ask . Here's some pics of the progress. I'll be pulling the SFB off my vertical and adding the chute in it's place. The gravity feed firebox is 8x8, 48" tall. The area that holds the charcoal above the grate is 36" long. Still need to add the doors, 2" ball valve, latches, mounting flange and wrap it with insulation. My adjustable work table . Will add more as it goes .
