That's looking wonderful William.
But how big is that stove ?
".............. all I did was shake the fire and it settled down about 6 inches in the fire pot. ............"
Dropped 6 inches ? That's the total depth of the firebox on my range !
If I may ask, what are the dimensions and capacity of the Crawford's fire pot ?
Reason I ask is, those pictures you posted of the #6 fire ring have got me intrigued and kicking around some ideas for when I get to making the firepot liner of my 118.
I'm trying to figure ahead, if I want to make a thicker cast firepot for my 118, that incorporates small secondary air channels up from the ash drawer area, or make an air distribution ring like your #6 has. If I make a ring that sits on top of the liner, I can go with a thinner liner, therefore, a little more coal capacity.
It's looking like a one inch thick liner will give me just over 10 cubit feet of firepot capacity.
Just for grins I measured the kitchen range. With the original, thicker firebox liners, it has 3.5 cubit feet.
Edit to correct my math. Just redid the numbers and skipped one, the range is .31 cubic feet and the 118 is somewhere around . 9 cubic feet.
Note to self. No more doing math during happy hour !!
