  1. Would you do this?

    The new dome and bottom would be covered by the KJ warranty. A whole new Classic under warranty for $500 would be an awesome deal. And the new model to boot. The person who gave you the parts should have applied for a warranty claim --unless the tipped it over.
  2. Those are tack welds. As long as they are melted into the leg and the shell they will be fine. Obviously they were fitted loose when welded. Those welds are very strong. If you can see where the weld is not bonded to either side of the weld then you have no attachment there and that is already a failure at that point. Lack of support from that weld can cause failure on the rest of the welds points. From what i see the welds all look good. Over time the lack of leg contact could cause weld failure if the legs are subject to a lot of force in use but that most likely will not be something to worry about.
  3. Lower Draft Door With Screen

    I have an older KJ and it has a spark screen. It is before D C. I do not use mine but am cooking on the ground. IMO for some reason they made a choice that it was not something that most people needed or would use.
  4. BGE Lump

    BGE lump is made for BGE by Royal Oak. The way that I look at it is better to just buy RO at Home Depot. http://www.nakedwhiz.com/lumpdatabase/lumpbag5.htm I use RO because it is substantially lees for what seems the same to me. i have had very good results with RO.
  5. Cast iron flat grate

    In this case I would attribute it to heat held around that front frying area. I have cooked with a crack in the bottom shell for going on three years. In my case it may have been from doing a burn off. I have a replacement bottom but have not bothered to fit it. Where i cook the coals would fall on the ground on to cement pavers if the bottom fell out.
  6. Cast iron flat grate

    This company will make custom sizes and their prices are pretty good. https://soapstoneproducts.com/product/soapstone-pizza-stone-3-4-thick
  7. Cast iron flat grate

    The first thing that i noticed was that the grate has a lot of solid area and seems to go right up to the shell. With that much space covered and closed ---probably should be an inch gap around the whole grate or cut outs depending on how the grate is held. BGE probably will not honor this one with a new bottom shell.
  8. DeWalt Batteries

    I do like to hear this. I have no idea where there is a Home Depot Rental Center. It seems that getting things registered with in 90 days is the big thing. They are probably hoping people forget.
  9. memory foam mattress?

    I can see how that could be a problem. I sleep in an unheated room in the winter and it the summer i have a whole house fan pulling a wind storm across the bed and use only a sheet for half the nigh but the middle of the nigh makes me go for something more. In a heated room or with no moving air I probably would hate it also. Next we will probably go Sleep # from the factory outlet refurbished and possibly a memory foam topper.
  10. DeWalt Batteries

    I was just in HD today and the sales rep for Rigid was there to talk to and had a sale. There are many people who are better informed than me. The rep said that the life time service agreement was for the tool only not the battery. The battery has a 3 year warranty listed on its package. The HD site says "Your power tool is covered if it breaks due to normal wear and tear, as long as it's been properly maintained and used correctly. Rigid will replace your damaged tool or parts including brushes, chucks, motors, switches, gears and even cordless batteries. " You have 90 days to register on line after the purchase date. "Properly maintained" according to another Rigid site means all work has been done by an " authorized Rigid service center" Service is through a " Home Depot Tool Rental Center". For batteries there is a number to call. http://www.homedepot.com/c/SF_TH_PR_RIDGID_Power_Tools_Warranty https://register.ridgidpower.com/about_lsa#
  11. memory foam mattress?

    We added a 2 inch memory foam layer to our mattress about 5 years ago. No indent but the foam surface is degrading. We flipped it and figure it will be time for a new one in a few years. I forget what mattress we got but it was over a thousand dollars and had a "pillow top"--can't check the brand-- the wife is sleeping on it right now. LOL The foam topping added a real noticeable comfort level. It seems to me that it is wise to ad this as a layer that you replace from time to time on top of your regular mattress.
  12. Soon to be Blaze owner....

    It will be interesting in the long run. From what I have read Shoppers Choice sells both mainstream products and their own products engineered to be better than what is available at a good price. They use what tehy sell to study and design their offerings. Supposedly they are very serious about making a product that solves the problems of what is currently available. They are a sort of development and marketing lab connected to their own mail order site. Once enough of these are sold--it would seem to be natural to make a line of accessories out of the same development lab. But who knows?
  13. Veggies???

    I really like corn in the husk in the microwave at 8 minutes for two. No need to remove the silk. Often it is so good that we eat it plain. It is fast and easy and delicious. It just tastes like corn! Hey it is an east try.
  14. The original used flour paste to seal. Some have tried foil but it will also burn. Some units have a lid that is tight enough to bring the smoke out the bottom. It is a matter of doing the best one can with what they have.
  15. Experimental upload

    Do you know what the size range is to post? --?X?
