I think we need a new listing since the others were getting a bit long. Feel free to post old ideas since others may not have seen them. This may be for other OWB as well. I cant believe no one is #####ing about the tar and junk literally flowing out the door when one opens it. Answer ? Well I hope its as simple as taking a piece of 1 inch ( your preference ) angle and either welding or drilling a couple of holes and fastening it to the bottom of the door opening ( not the door itself ) the junk should then drip/flow back in the boiler where it came from. You'll still have a bit from the door itself but the vast majority should be taken care of. Now all I need is a warm day to let the boiler die off so I can work on it. Also, if others have trouble finding a shovel to fit the 4 inch opening to empty their ashes, try a kids snow shovel. They are almost flat and should do a decent job. Since most are made with plastic and wood, try it when there aren't too many red ashes on the bottom.
