Comparative warping of steel and cast iron under heat
I need to replace the 1/4" thick cast iron smoke shelf on my old cast iron stove.
It is exposed directly to the flames.
It is difficult to get a replacement casting.
I want to replace it with a piece of 3/8" thick piece of steel.
Will the thicker steel resist to warping under the heat as well as the thinner cast iron?
Thank you for your attention.
