Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

      I am in the process of building a mold for the oven and need some bags of castable. It seems real hard around here to find it.-denis-rockville centre

          Be careful what you ask for.
          Heatstop is a refractory mortar containing refractory cement (calcium aluminate)
          Ciment Fondu is a brand name of refractory cement.
          Castable refractory is a proprietary mix of calcium aluminate cement mixed with appropriate aggregates and other goodies which is designed for castings or gunning.all you need do is add the appropriate amount of water.
          If you want to make up your own brew using calcium aluminate cement you may not end up with a brew that is easy to apply and it may not perform to requirements or stand up to thermal shock etc.
          Search for refractory suppliers.

            Makers of Heatstop also make Heatcast. Most masonry suppliers can get it for you. I just bought 14 bags of Firerok and was able to drive to Reading Pa. to pick up.

              There are many manufacturers that make this stuff. What you need to ask for is dense castable refractory because there are some that are called insulating castable and you need the dense stuff. Don't waste your money getting the higher temperature rated stuff they only contain aggregates that that are stable at something like four times greater than you'll ever fire to.

                All,

                I would like to ask a question. Can you use HeatStop 50 on the dome firebrick joints. I have read that it can be used as a refractory mortar but has anyone here actually used it and can say for sure that it works?

                Thanks!
                -Greg

                  heatstop 50 IS a refractory motar. That is what I'll be using in the next week. Just finished doing the layout to make sure floor tiles are where they are supposed to be.
