    DSCN0481.jpgDSCN0482.jpgDSCN0480.jpg Thanks Nate , paid 75$ for the tank shell instead of paying high dollar for sheets . Got rear part clamped on this mourning and made sure the leg castings fit good , and they do . the picture of the tool is a digital angle finder , which I found on a site for 26 $ , made it nice to get the angles right . 10 degree fire box - 17 degrees flue . And what made things nice is , in my location there happens to be nice little barn tucked away that just happens to have a rather large industrial brake in it . Take two people to work it and my old shop teacher from school is still alive , he was more than willing to give me a hand . next pictures will be a week or so , counted up all the holes I get to drill and put little bolts in before I take the other side apart . ordering the bolts and nuts today from ( Macmaster & Carr ) .

    DSCN0483.jpg hardware , came today , was expecting them yesterday . I am using what is called a ( slotted truss head screw ) 1/4 -20 bolt - stainless . It is the same as they used years ago . There are 5/8 inch 1 inch and a few 1 1/2 inch . I have been able to date this arch to at least 60 years old anyway . When I got it , it came with old English tin pans , and the rear drop flue had red wooden handles on it , on them was ( Cooks - Deruyter ) today known as Deruyter country hardware .
