Firepot? What is this thing?


Recommended Posts

I forget where I found this but it sure looked like some kind of firepot.  I did gift it to my mechanic who is younger and wants to create his own pile of interesting and perhaps never used stuff like I have done.  Does anybody recognize this beauty?

Looks like  a European (German I think) style fire pot, they do not have a clinker breaker, the have a drop out plate or plunger the sits in the round hole. The trapezoidal hole is the ash dump. The rod for the drop down plunger would go in the round hole up into the hole in the bottom of the fire pot. The brackets are for the two levers, 1 for the ash dump, the other connects to the plunger.


Thats my guess,


Like this one.
