TAKE APART FIRE GRATE
A KNOCKED-DOWN FIRE GRATE
By L. MCALEAVEY
The grate proper consists of four bars, two long ones for side pieces and two short ones for end pieces. These bars may be made any length desired, but if the short bars are made half the length of the long ones they will pack especially well, as shown in the diagram. The bars are made from 4 inch by inch iron, and near each end are bored holes that will readily accommodate a 14-inch iron rod.
The legs are simply ¼-inch iron rods, 14 inches long, pointed at one end and threaded at the other, so as to allow an ordinary nut to be screwed down on them for about half an inch.
The diagrams will show how the grate is set up and also how compactly it may be strapped for carrying. This grate is light, strong and inexpensive to build.
