Pete, I had considered casting the entire removable front as you suggest and obviously have had great success with. My concern, based on no experience with that design, was whether the joint between the vertical portion and the sloped front ( at I'd guess from the pics 25 to 30 degrees off vertical ) would be subject to cracking, despite it resting against the side walls of the chamber : what thickness have you cast this part in the past , of what castable, and do you butress or reinforce it in any way?
