    Took 2 weeks to try out the rails but it worked great slid out so easy on the metal instead of wood and had plenty of room to work on the stove here are some pictures so It DID happen :)

    Just one question are you able to slide the 1 1/2" strut under the stove without lifting the stove to get it in? I am looking to get a used Accentra and am trying to figure everything out before I get one.

    Yes slides right in between the bottom of the insert and the metal frame of the housing no lifting involved Mine is 1/4 inch higher so when I push it back I lean it a tiny bit to go back on the rails on the frame

    Looking at the picture you will need 1-10 ft stick of 1 1/2" and 1-10 ft stick of 3/4" also the 55" will vary with the height of the hearth since you are using the 1 1/2" to support it. You can also double up the excess 3/4" unistrutt (kindorf) if you do not want to lose the length of how far your stove comes out. Just trying to save some money without buying more unistrutt than you need. Some people actually have to pay for their materials ;)

    Very good idea, like it a lot.

    Even if I had to purchase the material I think its well worth the money to use metal instead of wood. But free is better

    I think it's awesome Glen... So much that I built one over the weekend using the info in this thread and it worked like a charm! All said and done the material cost $158 dollars from my local hardware store.

    Here it is in action yesterday... :)

    I would slide the rail kit into the fire place a little more so it is a little more stable but Mine works great I should patent this lol

    Used the home made rail kit again to pull the stove out for a quick cleaning and dusting. Works great
