In an old Bearcat potbelly stove . It's broke , and I'm pretty sure brazing isn't the answer at the temps down there . This is the grate at the bottom of the firebox , and if the stove gets red hot , damn sure that grate is just as hot . The "shaker" (separate piece in the center of the grate , you shake it to drop the ashes into the bottom) is also broken . My wife sez this thing has been in her family for quite some time , and she would like it repaired and installed in our living room . I'm not so sure I want that ash and soot spewing thing in the house , I'd rather use it out in the shop . Any suggestions ?
