Why two? Do they rot out fairly quickly? Or do you stack them?

BTW, I'm going to picking up a few more 3m wheels. I didn't realize the Gator wheels were 3m its just the company 3m sold the wheels to is called Gator. I put the one 3m wheel I had on my die grinder on my air compressor and it took the rust off on the inside of the stove right down to bare metal. I need at least 2 more to finish up the rest of the inside. My Mahogany Red Stove-Bright paint should be here either today or tomorrow too so I'll get the stove painted and post pics of it. I just need to now order the stove polish and finish taking the paint off the doors, top and legs and get them all polished up.

Here are the pics of the 3M wheels. I bought two different sizes. One is 1/2" The other is 1" wide. They work great. I've been using htem on my Die Grinder, the wheels are 4" in diameter and probably not really the correct size for the Die Grinder but they still seem to work.

Thanks for the pics IFO, I've never seen those but they do look like they would do a good job.

Two pans, one is setting on the floor till the coals are cold then dump it in a plastic trash bag and remove from the house, no dust flying around. the other in the stove.

I line a kitchen trash bag (13gal.) with the tough bags the coal comes in, place the ash pan inside tempoaryily close up the bag air tight and dump the ash, let the dust settle awhile in the bag before removing the ash pan. then seal up the trash bag and throw out with the regular trash. No going out in the cold to dump the ash pan, no dust in the house, no dust flying around outside. I keep the weight of the trash bags under 20lbs. so no complaints from the trash pick-up guys.

Makes sense. but I always used a 6 gallon galvanized trash can next to the stove. Put the hot ashes right into that and give it a day or so to cool off then dump it outside in my yard.

But the trash bag and second pan sounds like it'd definitely be a little more efficient.

Yeah, I just didn't like going out in the cold and dumping the ash into a trash can trying to stay up-wind of the flying dust cloud.

Yeah, that's why I usually wait until the weekends to empty the ash bucket out. You'd be surprised how much ash you can stuff into a 6 gallon can next to your fireplace hearth in the dead of winter.

Dropped the new grate and fire pot off at the steel yard on Saturday should get it back maybe in a week with the bar welded in place.

I've not gotten much else done on the stove though, the weather in Jersey has not been very favorable. I did however get my Mahogany Paint a tube of stove polish and a thermometer. So, once the weather breaks I'll get back to working on it.

IOF, if you bought a new fire pot why didn't you just get one with the bar already on it?

Sound good though, your making progress.

I just started today fixing up my coal storage area, mighty hot wheather for this kind of work. I'll take pics. when it's finished.

I talked to Larry about it and sent him some pics of the pot. He told me it looked to be in excellent shape and if it was not out of round to have a bar and pin welded on it.

Yeah, tell me about it. I haven't worked on the stove for two weeks. I still have the legs, base and the inside bottom portion (ash) of the stove to do sand paint and polish. I don't personally mind working in the extreme heat, that's why they make beer and water. But this rain is killing me. It down pours then clears up and its sunny. As soon as I start breaking tools out it clouds over and starts to rain again.

Not only do I need to finish the stove but I'm taking my turbo charged Neon apart to sell the parts off of and I need to get moving on the coal bin too. I can't even do that because of the weather.

Ahh, yup, the rain will stop ya. Lately we have lucked out, most of the hard rain storms have been going south of us. Leaving us with burnt out lawns.

The digging I'm doing is in tough bony gravel, wares me out, because of the heat I've been knocking off about 1: PM so, progress is going to be a little slow.

About the only thing I've done with my bin is laid the pallets down where they are going to go. I still need to dig out to level the ground out and put in some cinder blocks. Haven't done any of it because of the heat and rain.

Wow!!! Just dodged a big bullet, We just had a tornado warning for the past hour, the storm went right over us but, no touch down. I'm feeling very lucky right now.

When I lived in Colorado I saw several tornadoes. One funnel was going up and down right next to my apartment. It was scary.
