IF ya would, take a look at my bailer pics. Do you think I could get by without that apron on the table if I replaced it with a piece of stainless steel? I could run it up to near the knife on the chamber side, and put a curl in it to go over the roller on the outside end side. The auger would still be doing its job. Whaddia think. Im getting tired of fooling with that apron every year.
