Default Re: help cracks!!!!!!

During my third curing fire, my dome developed a long, full-thickness crack which extended from the soldiers to near to the top. Smoke was escaping through the crack and so I elected to repair it before the next burn. I used a 2000 degree commercial fireplace mortar in a "caulk" tube, cut the tip to 1/8 inch, and squirted it in the crack and point tucked it it. I let it dry for a day, then fired up to 500 degrees. The joint is solid and no new cracks have developed in the dome.

[QUOTE=chrispanzer;78738]HOLLY COW!!!!!!!! Man that is some amazing mason work. Your oven is awsome. I am almost embarrased to show you my oven.

Mate I know how you feel, I am actually embarrassed to show my progress on this site everyone's builds are amazing and neat and mine just looks sloppy! Lol glad you sorted your problem, I'm at the stage of curing now before I insulate and render (or stucco as you guys call it!)
