The Deal: Free fire pit! Yes! All you have to do is bring me 4 steel rims (2 matching pairs, rusted & dented OK, with tires removed) and you get to take a firepit home with you!
Don't have 4 rims to trade? $75 takes one home.
Description: This portable fire pit is made from a pair of re-purposed tire rims. They have a 6" X 9" (15cm x 20cm) opening to insert wood or charcoal, and feet to keep it off the ground and allow proper airflow for efficient burning. This item can be used as a take-anywhere fire pit or as a wood-fired barbecue; just throw a grill on top and you can cook!
Options: - A door to make the fire pit more efficient as a cook-top for grilling meat & veggies or boiling a big pot of corn!
- Cutouts of stars, moons, wildlife, or your family name to personalize your fire pit; no one can steal it!
Size: 18" (45cm) H x 17" (42.5cm) W
Q&A Q: Is this item still available? A: If you can see this ad, the item is still available. I take down my ads as soon as the item is sold.
Q: Will you take any less for it? A: If $75 is too steep, bring me 4 steel rims and you can take home a firepit for FREE!
Q: Will you deliver? A: I've had people either not be where/when they said or back out of the deal when I did show up. For those reasons I will not deliver.
Q: Why are you selling? A: Because these are cool!
Q: Is this new? A: I make these out of re-purposed steel tire rims. It's a great way to up-cycle locally.
Q: Is this legal? A: Absolutely. Within the Regional Municipality of Waterloo there are bylaws governing the use of fire-pits. This fits the size restrictions required for a contained fire.
The rules for a barbecue or cooking appliance are a little more relaxed. As long as the fire-pit is attended, used for cooking, not used on a balcony, and extinguished when cooking is completed, you can use this pretty much anywhere. Contact your local bylaw officer to find out more.
Q: Can I put it on my patio, deck, or balcony? A: No. Contact your local fire department or bylaw officer to confirm.
Q: Will ashes fall out of the bottom? A: Yes. You might want to set this on a patio stone to keep hot ash off the ground. When the ashes are cool, they can be swept into your vegetable garden or lawn.
