So took my platesetter out and set it on the edge.  Right when I did it I thought "I really shouldn't do that."  Next thing you know I knock it over and break two of the legs off!  What an idiot.  Well, that was a $70 mistake - live and learn.  :-(

    Bright side...knock off the third leg and you just made yourself a nice pizza stone ;)

    I have a PSWoo3 and have been meaning to knock all the legs off of my Platesetter to better work with that and as a secondary stone. Going to do the same thing with my Small Platesetter. No worries.

    Sorry to hear about your loss, but now is as good a time as any for an AR with stone.

    JB Weld. Will hold fine for low and slows. Not so much for pizza.
  • Dang that sucks, but you can use it for a stone.

    right, but discover that fact after you convince SWMBO's about the Adjustable rig.   ;)

    Too bad, but sounds like you had a better alternative already.

    I did the same thing and broke off one leg. Cut the other two off and it makes a perfect indirect piece for the AR

    Can you at least blame the adult beverages?
    We've all done some stupid things in life, don't sweat it
    Take a dremel to that third leg and enjoy your pizza stone

    As stated jb weld will hold. I kicked a leg off mine several years ago and it has even survived many pizza cooks.

    Unfortunately, I have no excuse... I was completely sober.  I was just in a hurry, set it down, and when a reached around to pick up the cast iron grate behind it, boom. 

    Cutting the other leg off is a good idea - I'll give that a try!
