A worthy comment to suggest changing the bottom's shape. My younger (now lazy) mind suggested in lieu of a manufacturer's change that interior plywood (flammable
) triangles could be made to replicate an angled shape. On minor concern may be that if the angle's edge was so close to the hole that the coal may autofeed at a faster rate once the level gets to some sort of a lower level..
