I was wondering too if this was a masonry fireplace or a wood stove.

Are you putting a steel plate vertical in the back or an over head steel plate. Is there a burn through spot you are trying to cover?

Ahhh, we'd call that an insert or inset stove. Over here a fireplace is an open fire.

When that was made it was built from 3 or 4mm mild steel, nothing special I'd imagine. If it was really expensive maybe 5 or 6mm but still only regular mild steel id imagine

Replacing the back and sides, back and one side were shot, finally got them burned out today and new peaces made, had to use a torch and skim the old liner our because of another plate behind them. Replacing them with 1/4" plate

You gotta love taking out a layer with a torch with another behind .
