No way to tell now. It has a wide, flanged top edge and with the firebricks tight in place, I can't get a mic over that edge.

And, I don't want to take the risk of removing and possibly damaging any of the bricks, without being ready to replace them.

i wouldn't have expected you to do that, how about the wall of the 118 pot ?

doesn't really matter which, just looking for a rough idea.

Steve,
As soon as the frost heave subsides and I can get my sand blasting booth doors open, I'll measure the 118 pot wall thickness and let you know.

The iron firepot on my Art Garland and on my Keystone II are both about 1/2" thick. The iron does taper a bit in thickness, thinner near the bottom where the fingers are, just above the grates, and much thicker near the top then there is the top flange that is roughly 1" to 1-1/2" wide, but it's not circular, there are corners near the back.

wow, that is an impressive stove for sure.

thanks for the input on the cast pot wall thickness.

any ideas what it would take to equal 1/2 of iron in steel if a guy was looking at building a pot ?

thanks,
steve

Line the pot with 1 inch or more of refractory and it could be 3/16 or less. Will work better lined in any case.

:mad: No, too many other things have come up. The poor Keystone II is still all apart. It is a nice, small baseheater, so I'd like to get it done, but the plating is expensive, and I have so MANY other projects right now.

Maybe later this year.. but I doubt it.

Steve,
Thawed enough today that I was able to get the sandbox doors open.

For the 118 firepot - front side, one inch up from the edge, it's 0.373 inch wall thickness.

Can't measure higher up the pot wall because the skirt ring is still bolted on to the pot's top flange and the bolts are rusted in place. However, sighting up the wall, it doesn't look noticeable thicker, or thinner.
