Ah yes... The steel would get soft at those temps I did consider two pieces... A top and bottom may not be practical. Not sure how I would stabilize two sides either, unless maybe they would bind up sitting in the "V" shape from gravity.. Not sure I understand the divider idea ..... Maybe you could elaborate
