      Re: Ceramic Fiber Blanket Dealer ( good deal ?? )

      I have a quick question.
      ..is it better to put multiple layers of 1" blanket on, or just a few of 2" blanket....would it need more compression on the blanket, would these be good or bad for the dome insulation?

      Oh yeh....is there such a thing as too much blanket, or should it be kept to maximum size??

        I have 3 x 1" of blanket over the top of mine, multiple layers of any thickness should be good, plus I also have 1 cubic Metre of loose vermiculite over it too.

          Yeh, i've seen your build log Al, (nice work......love the gargoyle..."think i've already said that somewhere before" ), would you think that 4x1" layers or 2x2" layers of blanket would be better, the price for the stuff is about the same, so price wise it doesnt matter, i just thought what would be best for the oven

              Wow!!! That is great deal!!! So did you buy any? If I read it correctly the ceramic board seems to be a good deal as well since it comes with 3 sheets at 2'x3'x2" for about $165. Can anybody verify the quality of this person's site/business?

                In all my looking online for reviews it does not appear that this business is as great as it sounds. I found many negative reviews and only 2 positive. It is kind of worrisome to me. Anybody else have any input?

                  I don't know about that one, but Harbison Walker is fine and they were even cheaper for the fiberboard. My board came in cartons with five sheets of board that were 12 inches by 36 inches...in other words, 15 square feet per carton...and the board was three inches thick. Price was $95 per carton. That works out to $6.33 per square foot. The FB board (for 2 inch) works out to 11.66 per square foot.

                  The blanket was pretty expensive though at HW. Fifty sqaure foot carton of 1 inch thick blanket is $126. That works out to $2.52 per square. The Forno Bravo blanket works out to $1.50 per square foot. I have no idea about relative efficiencies, but the FB blanket is a lot cheaper.

                  My two cents.

                    I have purchased a few things from them in the past and have found them easy to deal with good prices and fair shipping. They seem to have different things in stock They had a large selection of diamond saw blades last year but seem to have almost none now. I was very happy with the blades I bought from them. I wish I had been able to purchase the blanket and board from them I would have saved a lot of money.

                      Hey Chip,

                      In your reply were you referring to McGills Warehouse or Harbison Walker from the post directly above yours from WJW?

                      Sorry for having to ask but I just want to make sure I understand correctly.

                          That must be a sale price or a goof on the wbsite. I picked up a roll two weeks ago from McGills at over twice that price. The $23 was the price per roll if you bought a pallet. Grab them before it goes back up.

                            Any suggestions on how many rolls to cover a 42" build?
                            FB says a 50 sq ft roll will cover a 43" oven. These are 25 sq ft, so I am thinking 2 rolls will give me 2" of insulation - but wanted to check my math

                            suggestions? It is a smoking deal
