I like these grates, but I'm probably biased. :lol:

I had already bought a piece of strap metal like you show, thinking along the same line as you.

Great video

Wish i had started playing around with this earlier in the fall, it is a little hard now that it is cold. I would have changed my design on how i have it set up. It does heat well, and i think it is very efficent with all the cast iron mass. Now i must confess to something, when i bought this house in 79, the old coal bin was still in the basement along with some coal. If i remember right, i believe the old grates and lower door were in there and i threw them out. If only i would have kept them.

Nice video. He does what I do in accumulating so many things there is no room to work.

Notice on the stove the ash door is so narrow there is no hope of installing an ash pan that would catch all the ash. It would have to be shoveled out which is messy. but for the amount he paid he got a great bargain.

Thanks for posting.
