Default R/E 8" lower firebox casting

I have found a R/E lower firebox half (the portion with the feed door) which I plan to have a short run cast. It is from an 8" example, and in good shape. This will be set up for the gas style burner retaining only the brick support flange over the feed/inspection door. All lower flanges for brick and grate support are not present indicating to me possibly gas from factory? If an individual wanted to set up the new casting for solid fuel, it would not be difficult to fab and affix the grate/brick support members from angle stock. Is there any interest out there in having one of these made up for yourselves as well as the one I am having cast for myself? It seems that the lower portion of these fireboxes is the first to break up and disappear. There will be basic finishing required like tapping the holes for mounting, and fitting a groove in the latch for the door upon completion. Cost is relative to how many need to be made. The last large and complex casting like this seemed to fall in the $250-$300 range. Do let me know if you have any interest, as I plan to ship out next week.
