Thanks for the compliment . This is my pride and joy . The tank is 30" diameter x 84" long . My fire box is 25"x18"x18" . The fire box and the reverse flow plate inside is all 1/4" steel . Which I had purchased at our local scrape metal place. I had bought a wire feed ( flux core ) wire welder . I bought the welder at harbor frieght for under $100 . But when I got to welding the reverse flow plate inside the welder broke . I then went and spent the money for a Hobart welder . It was well worth the money . I should have bought the Hobart in the begining . The wire welders are easy to use and you get better as you weld more . I have 2 levels of shelves which pull out . I will be mounting on a trailer next week .
