    I've done cylinders this way but used washers either side which allowed me to use slightly smaller screws, and gave adjustment to get everything square.

    It was nice to see your method for the fireboxes, always good to add more to one's tool box so to speak.

    Guys,
    Don't underestimate the effect of soldering the nuts to the spacers, it's not subtle in it's effect and is a significant build on the ease of use.

    You're right about the application in any assembly that uses shaped spacers though.
