You'd need a LOT of holes which defeats the purpose of the ash catcher.
I just found at a garage sale an old 18" round camping grill that will set in the bottom of the drum as my new ash pan!!
Pictures at Eleven!!
I'll try it with no holes first. I can always add some .
Lot easier to add holes than take them away.
Many years ago, the guy teachin me aircraft assembly said "take that hole out and drill it again".
Soon as I get my hands on some expanded metal, I'll stop a lot of this foolishness and make a proper basket.
