BlueStar cast iron grate mod...
When we got our new range, the cast iron grates rocked back and forth no matter which way or location they were installed. I originally thought I'll just even them out on a bench grinder. But when I looked underneath, I noticed that there was a hole in one of the arms of the casting. I have no idea if was intended for this purpose or not, but I tapped some 1/4"-20tpi threads in it. And inserted stainless steel recessed hex head set screws... and finely adjusted the grates with a small allen wrench so that there is not one hint of tipping. Even with removing and reinstalling the grates, they still hold their setting even with no Loctite thread locker.
The holes seemed intentional, as if that was what they were designed for. But since I have no other stove with which to compare mine, there's no way of knowing unless someone here would be so kind as to let me know whether or not their BlueStar grates came with leveling screws in them, or even if they needed leveling to keep from tipping back and forth.
