Hello from Illinois
« on: July 04, 2018, 08:30:38 AM »
I was looking for repair suggestions for my old kettle this morning and came across this forum. It looks like the community has lots of great information! I was able to date the kettle I have from the Age Guide rather quickly. I have 3 Weberís; an old gas for quick hot dog grilling and 2 kettles. From the Age Guide, it looks like my oldest one is from 64-68. I also have a OneTouch from Ď05. I use all three grills throughout the year; rain and snow donít keep me away from the grills!  Sadly, the handle on my old kettle gave out this morning and came off in my hand so that one will be on the Sideline until I can fix it.

Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

Thanks. I checked that out earlier. Unfortunately I need to reattach the the old handle too. I donít have any welding equipment so I would need some other alternatives.

Hello and welcome to the WKC from Eugene, Oregon.   Reattach your existing handle with a couple of stainless steel bolts/nuts and washers (on the inside of the lid).
