i have a pit thats 1/4" thick. 20x48 and i love it. if you go with the 3/8" then def think about putting a counter weight on the door. mine is heavy enough. i like the weight so i dont have a counter weight on mine, but at 3/8" it might be advised.


you dont need rails to sit your tuning plates on. they will just sit on the sides of the chamber. since the chamber is round and tapers off as it goes lower, teh tuning plates just sit right in the chamber. i might throw these in mine as well soon. im also thinking about getting a heat deflector plate from horizon to put in mine.

good luck! excited to see some pics of the build!
