Hello everyone, no excuses for not replying except busy doing everything but work on my oven.
I did score a dual axle boat trailer with enough extra steel that I will be able to chop it into a small gooseneck unit. All I need now is for ambition guy to camp out in my shed for a while.
ndnman: the steel frame overall dimensions are 56" square by 9" deep. The main rails are 1.5" x 3", and the
'floor" joists are 1.5" x 1.5".
RI.BackyardOven: There is a piece of the puzzle not shown in the photos. The aluminum yardstick is only used to align the side cuts toward the center of the oven. I have a hardboard template that I wedge into the dome curvature centered on the stud. Then I place a brick and angle it to conform as much as possible with the form. From there I measure how much of a wedge to cut off of the lower horizontal surface. From there on it's Murphy and my trusty HF saw.
Progress is slow but I started working on it again last week.
I have some new photos but for some reason I cannot get the 12.8k jpegs to load.
