Love this! I have 2 24” bell ends lying around. May have to try this. Is that the inner ring of the bell end that you used for the grate ring?

That's a piece of end cap that I had left over from the re-model of Big Tex, the monstrosity that's in my avatar pic. I cut the end caps off and replaced with flat plate to lose some weight and size.
I made some progress today, see if I can remember how to post a youtube on here:

Good work, Boomer. Do you have some sort of ratchet and pawl system to stop the grate falling under it's own weight, or just friction?


You can never have too many hammers.

Friction. There's a spring on the outer end of the winding pipe that holds it in place.
