had to go in to the office today but I got to work on it for about an hour when I got home. I got a little further on the new hinges... Shaped the 3/8 bars and attached the rod supports. Looking to finish this up and get through a little more.
Warmed up the bar a "little" to shape it to the cylinder after bending it 90˚.
The attached hinge:
Layed out on the smoker. Have to attach them to the door tomorrow.
Well that's it for tonight. Should have something more to report back with tomorrow night if all goes well.
