    Anyone could make this mod with some tin-snips, sheet stainless, drill, rivet gun and some rivets.  Just remember to put the rivets in from the back.

    @nolaegghead Why not eliminate your micro adjustment sliding door and use the one already installed on your BGE? Simply shear your plate, punch your holes, bend a tab, and insert this in place of your screen when needed.

    That's a clever idea, Brownie.  I have the DigiQ so don't have any plans to mod myself, but that would work.  The only issue I'd have over a smaller damper, and this might just be an idiosyncrasy of my dampers, is they're tight.  A small damper could be adjusted with very little effort.

    Since Thirdeye isn't taking orders now, I can help out with wiggle rods.  I made a whole bunch when I made mine and if I people are interested I'll try to find a cheap way to ship them.  Just shoot me a pm if you're interested.

  • Wow, been busy today but realized there are 20+ emails requesting this product.

     

    Sorry...We do not ship merchandise

    I didn't intend on starting a problem here on the board. If anyone is local come in and ask me for this item and I can show them to you.  Since they small they really can't be displayed very well as they get hidden easily.  -Smitty

  • I think I'm going to make one of these.  I'm throwing this out for opinion: Will sheet aluminum be ok or do you think it might not be able to handle the heat?  Should I forget about aluminum and go with stainless?  Also, because I haven't made up my mind on design, I might rivet.  Do you think aluminum pop rivets might react (electrolysis) with stainless?

    I don't work with metal and I think the last time I did was in shop class oh so many years ago.

  • Let me know how it turns out for you. Absolutely ZERO metal experience here!

    Aluminum should work,as the air is being pulled in through the plate, which should keep it well under the melting point.  I actually doubt it would get that hot even without air flow.  It would take quite a bit of coals in the base to get that hot, but I would watch it for the first cook or two.

    no chance in heck that it could ever melt, if that's the concern

  • Thanks bettysnephew and stike!  I really appreciate your input.  I'm going to use aluminum.  I'm sure the design/trial & error building process for this desk jockey will take a few days.
