red Wood Dale
« on: June 15, 2016, 01:18:10 PM »
I called and left a message... as long as it stays in the club, I'll be happy.  Wouldn't be the worst father's day present either but my wife gave me flack about it as soon as I asked ("another grill...sigh")

How do those large chips happen?
So, I can understand the weld points over many years with heat, and the "crazing" which I have learned is from intense heat up against the bowl, but what about the lid?
Was it dropped?
Did someone take a friggin ball pien  hammer to that one spot? How does that happen?

In that grill's era(s), kids still played outside. And their toys weren't chinese plastic back then.
They played rough, threw rocks.
Pellet guns (the powerful kind), 22 long rifles, slingshots.

Grills make fun sounds when they get hit with things.

just a thought.

We did that in the 80s too. Only with plastic guns but we still bounced crap off of our parents stuff outside because the sounds made is giggle to no end.
