However, it may be cheaper (read easier) to buy a new firebox. I'm told that the one from http://www.kamadoking.s5.com/whats_new.html
will fit these eggs. I know it defeats the point of trying to do a refurb, but these are replaceable parts. At some point you have to cut bait.
Then again I've been too cheap to order a daisy wheel top, so feel free to sprinkle a few grains of salt on this post.
Thanks Jim. Those ceramic putties look pretty high-tech.
As for spending more money, I'm kind of running out of steam on Humpty. So if the stove/furnace/gasket cements don't work out, I'll just cook on a cracked claypot. C'est la vie....
