The rear grate frame split finally last night, everything dropped into the ashpan. It was cracked at one end for years. I have been looking for replacement frames and grates for a couple of years to no avail. It seems like the stove parts joints don't have a source. Apparently, Steel King's old customer service person retired and no one knows which foundry was doing the castings. In other words, they are available, we just don't know where.
Anyway, the frame measures 7" wide and 13" long on the outsides and they are 1" thick all the way around. The grates are 5" X 11". If you know of anything that may fit, I would like to here about it.
If I can't get grates that fit maybe I should modify the firebox to an other type of shaker or change it to a stoker. I can't see keeping 800# of steel around if I can't burn coal in it.
Anyone with a spare stoker they want to get rid of? Any crazy ideas?
