Details on leg hardware for WSM 22"?
« on: April 03, 2018, 12:01:12 PM »
Does anyone know the specific details of the screws, washers, and nuts that attache the legs to the bottom of the WSM 22" purchased circa 2014? I am fixing up 10 of them. I have the legs but many are missing the screws. I want to see if I can replace them myself from HD or Lowes. Weber wants $6 for a hardware kit for each one.
TIA,
Dan
Looking for 22" or 26" kettles and 22" WSMs, NIB or like new in the Chicago area.
Also, looking for old Summit gas grill parts.

Screws should be 1/4, and 1/2" length, and 1/4 nuts/washers.

If you have any of the existing hardware you can take the screws to HD and they should have various threaded things in which you screw your screw to make sure you find the right thread size

Thanks Bob.  Based on the manual the inner washer and outer washer look different.  Any idea what the difference is?

I believe it is a nylon washer on the outside.

I'd recommend getting stainless steel for the metal hardware.

Its not Nylon, Its a fiber washer.
Look for bulk hardware on Ebay 1/4x20
Get SS.. I did find fiber washers at HD.
Easy enough.. but 10 WSM's? Please explain..

Just go to HD or Lowe’s and buy the hardware. You don’t need the plastic washers

Its not a plastic washer, its fiber. They have them at HD. I think the intent is to keep form cracking the porcelain..
I really don'y know why its there. Its cheap enough..
