"Stop Drilling" Cracks on Fire Box (no warranty)
So I am developing a crack in my Small BGE fire box. The link Below is an early post of mine describing the damage....http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1140409/crack-forming-in-small-firebox-do-i-fix-it-or-just-leave-it-alone#latest
My dad and I have an Idea to fix it or at least minimize the damage. Im thinking of "stop drilling" the crack at the base of the crack Just like they do with aircraft aluminum parts.... except on my egg.... with a masonry bit.... without a professional.... Im already nervous and second guessing myself.
I realize this could make the situation worse. however, I would think the crack will likely continue down the firebox wall and eventually split regardless of my repair attempts. Am I right in my assumption? Do you all think this could work? Am I crazy to even entertain the thought?
