Size of sheet metal for DIY build
Posted 17 February 2012 - 11:12 PM
I was wondering if there were any sizings for the sheet metal requirements for the DIY build. Everything seems to be in metric sizing in the uk, usefully, but never mind.
I worked out a 1250 x 2500 mm sheet was fine for the container walls. Being 50"x100".
The rings seem larger, but surely can be cut from within each other. Spaced separately it was about 6mx1m. Or 240"x 40"
It does look like there is an image on the main page near the plasma cutter image, but they don't open to the bigger image.

The latest CAD files we have available is the version 4.0 posted here: http://wiki.gekgasif...eet metal parts
You can download these as .dxf, .pdf, or .dwg files.
The thicknesses that we use for the various parts are 10, 16 and 20awg.
The parts list is linked off of this page also.
Keep us in touch with your progress!

Would it hurt just to use 304ss metal for all items because it says it all fits on a 1 1/4 sheets but if its all different gauge metal and mild and SS then it cant be cut all out on same sheet.You mentioned awg but isn't that sizing for wiring?I just went with 10ga,16ga, and 22ga(not20) instead and Shop person said that's how they go by with their sizing.Just followed sizing in the 4.2 pdf file only changed awg to gauge...
Also the link you provided doesnt have the shaker grate on it , that part with holes in it to bring down ash.The pdf file 4.2 seems to have it on it but the 4.0 link you posted doesn't.
