Hey fellas, after successfully keeping a good fire my first cold spell of the year the weather has warmed up for about a week or so. So My shaker grate assembly is very worn and I can't see a way to fix it. Has anyone else had success in repairing this. Below u have attached pics of how worn it really is.

Nevermind, I fixed the issue. Repaired all of the wear and made a new L bracket.

Lol I tried to make the best with what I had to work with once I get my machines up and running I might revisit rebuilding it.

One ok method of repairing egged out holes is to slide a short piece of pipe or tube or steel bushing(depending on how wore out it is) over the bolt an reassemble it an position it correctly then weld it in place. If you have a die grinder and carbide burr you can weld up the wear and burr it back to round enough.

Yea that would work too. I got it to where it's like new. Hardly any play in it.
