I know I can call.... but in an awful lot of cases, the answer is right in the PDF. I make it a point to read forwards and back a bunch before I start on something like this. It makes PMs in the office a bit nuts when I tell them it'll take me 3 days just to make the first pass through the documentation on a new project.Big T wrote: I haven't built one of these yet but I know that when I can't figure something out it sometimes helps to read ahead in the directions. If that doesn't do it you could always call Frank for assistance.
@Rodcrafter, yeah, I know about the slope for the drain. The graphic on pg. 5 isn't all that clear about how sheet B mounts, but between pg. 2 and the dimensions, it's now pretty obvious.
I still have some pretty serious cutting to do. I need to trim the C-channel back, one of the half inch plates is about 3/8" too long, and I need to cut the taper on 2 of the quarter inch plates. I'll probably set my 4x6 power hacksaw up for vertical operation, it's got a pretty good bi-metal blade, so I make the long straight cuts (and keep some piece with the neighbors, it's a pretty quiet compared to a recip saw or a cutoff wheel in a grinder.) After that, back to horizontal operation, but set for 45 degree miter cuts for the door curbs and doors. And weld up the firebox. That's not all getting done in a day.
