I don't think I have enough liability insurance to be involved in sending him anything that would involve fire or burning.

I thought about doing complete fire baskets too but because of the size I don't know what shipping would run since I would need to buy boxes to be able to fit it and then the cost of shipping too. With all the pieces and parts and the steel pre-cut it would only involve screwing together the two pieces of expanded steel and the using the bailing wire to attach it to the grate.
I would include detailed instructions too and I did think about a step bit too. I might just sell the step bits separately if there was interest in them. I can get drums very easily but I looked into it and shipping them in about $100 and I doubt anyone would want to do that.
I am not really looking to make much money off of this. I just know that most people have trouble finding the expanded steel and the stainless hardware. I could buy everything in bulk and get it fairly cheap on a per unit basis and hopefully make it easier and cheaper on most people.
I do appreciate all the advice though.
