Alternatively, a creative guy like you could buy some poster board and create his own...it's only 3 unique pieces (long side, short side, bottom).Did you keep the templates? Say yes. Would you like to upload them to the forum in case others would like to try or have it done?
Heck, I used notebook paper. Take good measurements, transfer to paper and carefully trace.Alternatively, a creative guy like you could buy some poster board and create his own...
EDIT: I've used material from hanging file folders to create templates, too, or manila folders. Any heavy paper will work.
It doesn't have to be exact, it doesn't have to be pretty...it just has to work. Poster board and masking tape would allow you to tape one up and test fit it, but paper works just as well and is easier to cut with scissors. The only thing you really need is the desire to do it.Heck, I used notebook paper. Take good measurements, transfer to paper and carefully trace.
Overall width is 19-5/8I am in the process of creating a pdf that can be tiled and printed at full scale. I see a mismatch in that you show a 9 15/16" measurement and OAL of 9 5/8" on the rear panel view. I assume you mean 9 7/8"?
Templates are out there for others to recreate if they want. It’s easy enough to draw them out, or someone else can (is already) make a printable template.Gerry,
What you are doing could be a HUGE service to us who love the old 1-5, x000 Genesis grills. It has become a serious issue to keep restoring these, in that finding drip trays for them that aren't too rusted to redeem is getting harder and harder. This major part and perhaps eventually the contol panel and some other parts are eventually going to put an end to being able to bring back these classic Webers.
I know I can speak for others that we are appreciative of you taking time to make these templates. What I think is needed is a way for you to reproduce them at 1:1 scale so that you can sell the set of templates to others like me. With the templates in hand, it would seem that it would reduce the cost of getting a sheet metal guy to fabricate a completed tray. Like you said, it doesn't have to be stunning, just workable (and long lasting). Stainless is the obvious choice, but maybe heavy enough gauge aluminum if that would be more cost-effective?
p.s. Gerry be sure to tell Lisa I said "Hi" and that the little Genesis Jr. has a permanent home in my garage with my wife being a little more forgiving after seeing the fun video clip where Lisa told her why I "needed" it!
Yeah, it’s not perfect. Hard to measure with the rounded bends etc. but as long as it doesn’t leak and holds to the bottom of the grill…Ok, thanks! To anyone creating templates, there will need to be some adjustments to the corners of the flanges when bent to bring those edges together. If you print this and fold it you will see what I mean. I will add to this as I complete.

I’ll say hi to Lisa for you.
Did you ever find your slow and sear?
