Get those caps off and get the wheels to Jeff.  Just grab them with a vice grips or ease them off with a flathead screw driver.  I got caps if you need new one...  It will give me an excuse to go talk shop with Jeff at his museum, which I always love....

I've never had any problem getting them off all the other grills..these do not want to come off! When I have more time I'll try again. It's like their holding on for dear life, lol.

Things have been hectic at work lately so i havn't had much time to have any "fun", but on Sunday it was my only day off and I was having family over for dinner that night so I decided it was time to finish up one of my projects.... all the 'Warrior' needed was a brand new finished handle. Thanks to Brian, again! Also an added bonus!! About a month or so ago, Stu (G) was nice enough to set me up with a mint wooden Weber work table, so I had to hook it up with the appropriate kettle.  The wooden tables of course were meant to attach to the metal bowl handles, If I want to use it on my '95 redhead, I just remove a wood handle and it lines up perfectly in the 18.5" slot on the wood table. So I'd say that this Warrior is all finished and is ready for another 3 decades of service! A BIG THANK YOU goes out to Stu and Brian! I really appreciate it!!  ;)

That is SWEET! is that an original table? I only ask, because I have one on my 26 Brownie. Ionosphere's have 18 and want to make proportional model.

Yes, this is an original from the '70s. Right down to the towl ring on the one side. I read somewhere (here, I think) that Weber only made these until 1977. These should fit a 26" easily. All Weber did was use the old style thumbscrew leg sockets to adjust the height. The only thing missing is a chrome leg cap, but I'm sure I can find one at SLowe's or the 'Depot. This was definatly a good investment! All I need now from "accessory land" is a '70s kabob ring and a Corn 'N Tator ring.

I have that same table still in the orginal box, pretty much unused, but I don't have the towel ring on mine.  I bet its the same towel ring like the Sequoia has.

That's what I thought too when I saw the towel ring. I wonder if Weber did them with and without the rings now? Do you have a pic of it/ original box?
