It was just an idea. I haven't had a first fire anyway yet. Might work well as is. I'm glad my first concern is that I will be too warm! I might see if it will work with that diameter and then go in search of a piece of steel pipe; or just come up with a firebrick configuration. Pic is of firebrick initially just put inside to get an idea of that set-up. If I bevel the firebrick it will fit better, also have to trim the bricks in the front for height. My little Plasplugs tile saw will do the trick. There's a retaining ring on the bottom, the other one is pretty beat. I have to see if I can weld up a repair to it. Local stoneyard really overcharges for refractory cement, all my initial expenditures for this rig represents 50 gallons of home heating oil, lol, but I still steadfastly approach the unique status of an anthracite coal burning man. I have another line on more basement coal from an electrician buddy! I have to pester him about it though, it's at a customer's house that he isn't currently on smooth terms with!
