Expanded Metal Grate Photo's
<p />Kemper, (and anyone else curious) [p]These are (I hope) the pictures of my Expanded Metal Grate Building Experiment. The top photo shows the grate with 5 1/4-20 bolts for legs. These stick into the throat of the firebox to prevent movement when stiring the coals and ashes.[p]The middle photo shows the firebox on it's side on the table with the grate in place. The bolts hold it in good although I can't imagine why it would be important to hold in at this angle.[p]The bottom is another view of the legs of the grate.[p]I hope this helps those curious about the grate setup I posted earlier. [p]I haven't tried it with a trivet yet, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. I hardly have to stir ashes out at all with this setup. Plenty of air gets through. Ashes seem to fall right through. [p]I would love to find some stainless expanded metal sometime. I believe it would last almost forever.
