My drum...(How I built it if anyone is interested)
The grate is heavy duty, made from 3/16" thick steel. The handles on this sucker are heavy duty too. It should last me a lifetime! I know it will outlast the drum, and when this drum wears out I'll just use the grate in a new one. :)
Not sure if you will see this but if you do, Thanks Matt!! Can't say enough about how much I love this grate. You do excellent work!!
