Spent the day making the inserts. First off was making the jig to bend them on. I figured out what I needed from my drawing. Went to Ace Hardware for the supplies.
I fired up the woodburner to help heat the metal to bend.
Started bending things. Had to use the Mapp gas torch to supplement the heat.
Here's the hand hold pieces.
Here's one of the other parts.
I'll trim the second parts to fit the pan then weld in heavy wire from a cattle panel to keep things in place while pouring.
More to come!
