The good news is that the base is being redesigned. No longer will you have to buy an entire base if one side rusts out. It is supposed to be an angle iron frame with 4 bolt-on sides and have much more replaceable parts. It's unlikely that I'll ever see a replacement part sold because we're talking quite a few years down the line until a replacement part would be needed.
Alot of the bases were just set on bare earth in someone's cellar, years ago, and the boilers literally are hanging from the pipes in the ceiling today. If a base is set on blocks, with even a layer of plastic covering the earth beneath it, it should last a long time.
Well I wonder where EFM got The Idea on how to build the new bases I hope the Guy that gave you The info & Idea is
