Thanks fellas !!!!!

"On the fly" is probably the best description haha.... What I mean is I'm a bit of an over researcher/planner. I've bout worn out the "search" feature on here and had it all planned out....... BUT ....... Yesterday was my first day in the fab shop (starting with my coal basket) and sure enough my design changed. I had planned on stainless fasteners to hold it together and for legs but I ended up welding everything to save on weight and strength . I ended up with my 17" Weber grate , a 16 1/2" ring of expanded with the grate suspended and welded 3 1/2 " off the "floor" of the drum. So my fire box is 13 tall by 17 round.... All welded and SOLID. After I return the stainless hardware ill have $8 in it lol.
