Is there a post on how to make these things? Seems like a fun project.

Nice work @Mr.CPHo
Do you have a photo of the inside of the bowl? Specifically interested in where you have mounted the lid holder near the vent hole

This is a pic of the inside where I mounted the lid bale assembly, paying special attention to ensure it doesn't inhibit the path of the ash sweeper.  I used a stainless steel wing nut, which incidentally supports the bottom grate as well.

Fantastic.  I'm always a little mad at myself for not building one yet when I see these. How many is this for you?

I really like the "Blue 22" chop done by Mr.CPHo  Any clues as to how much to take off each leg and off the axle to still accommodate the dual wheels?  Also did you buy the wheels on a website? or did you already have them lying around as spare parts? I really want to do this!

They seem to be multiplying in the garage.  3 more are in the gestation phase[emoji41]

Welcome, smokindave, thanks for your 1st post.  I'll get you dimensions of the legs and axle soon.

Thanks! I figured since now I have a total of 5 kettles, I should join the club.  I also have a Q1000 and a Go Anywhere so I guess you could say I have the sickness...lol  My latest is the '11 Black OTG that I couldn't pass up on craigslist for $25.00.  That is the one I plan to chop.  In the meantime, I just need to come up with 2 more wheels.

Sounds like you've come to the right place.

The blue 22" midget above uses 8" wheels, not the 6" wheels that came with your OTG.  Be mindful of the difference.

I cut 6-1/2" off the front leg and 7-1/2" off the back legs, and about 3/4" off each side of the axle to fit double 8" wheels.  I also had to drill an additional hole on the front leg, one inch above the existing hole into which the triangle is inserted.

Good luck and have fun.
