Sorry for the delay. I got sidetracked building a project with my teenage son.

Agreed. I'm changing to a single rectangular shape to meet Feldon's calculations.
Picked up my flat bar and met my local steel sales people today!

Done with the piano hinge.

Refining the drawings for the firebox. Current design is a top loading firebox.

Aaaaaaand, my door fell off LOL. Time to rethink my design. Some sort of oil inside kept gumming up my tools so I decided to go ahead and burn it out.

Exploding cut off discs: 1
Unsuccessful plug welds: 6

Great info...now I'm thinking I could do a radial pattern of holes in the top instead of a traditional vent in the center. Magnets or magnetic pieces could cover the vent holes for adjustment. This wi ...

Serious question: Since this was a compressor tank, do I still need to do a burn out???

This hinge is anything but flimsy. 1/8" steel 4" across with a solid 1/2" pin.

I got it for this build so I will be using it.

Thanks Kam!

Do I need to worry about prep and paint under the hinge? I've ground off the paint for welding.

???is this thing on???

Laid out the door using the weld seams as a guide. Stayed 1" away from all factory welds and ended up with a single door 18-1/2" x 46"
