Glass for Hitzer 50-93

Hey guys. Many people on here have been very nice and helpful to me. So here's a tip that maybe somebody could use... If you're tired of spending $80 every time your glass breaks on your stove, do this. Drill and tap four 1/4-20 holes in your load door and affix 1/8 plate steel as such. It cost $40, and its fixed for good!! As well, the stove will retain a little more heat to boot.

A glass door is one of the nicer features of modern stoves. You can see the condition of the fire at a glance plus I enjoy looking at it. If the glass is breaking repeatedly I would suspect it is not mounted properly.

Ditto on that Richard. Going on my 4th year with my 50-93 glass--yes, it takes some effort to clean & change gasket (not yet) but, it sure is nice seeing the ladies strut their stuff. :) The glass radiates as much heat as a piece of tin I would suspect.

Thanks for the constructive criticism, fellas. Look, all I was trying to do was save a fella a few bucks if he doesn't care what his stove looks like. In these economic times, function and price will trump pretty every time. LOL :)

Not in MY house, with my live-in interior designer. :lol: Find an artistic high school student, have him/her paint some red coals and blue flames on the steel plate. Or have him paint a wood fire to remind you of all the work you save with coal. Functional AND pretty. Sort of like the fish-tank screen savers for your computer. :)

Lol!!!!! Gotta love the spousal unit. My stove is in my man-cave (what used to be called a basement). I told my wife that in this area, you'll not decorate or begin sentences with the following phrases: wanna, needa, or canya. Consequently, she stays upstairs. Hahahaha

Supposedly, Alex Lifeson is like a 3rd cousin of mine. I have relatives that live in Toronto. I haven't met him. I guess he had a really long, hard-to-pronounce Serbian last name (like mine) and changed it to Lifeson many years ago...

One of those names where we just want to say, "Come on, guy, buy a vowel" :?:

Years ago Bob and Ray did a satire of a popular radio show that interviewed people in Grand Central Station. So they approach a person and ask him his name. He answers, "I can't really tell you because nobody in my family has been able to pronounce it so we just say Smith".
