Oven Repair: repointing arch
 
4 Attachment(s)
What correct refractory cement should I use to repair the failure of the Refractory cement in the joint of my inner arch. The arch is in two solid pieces and is not moving at the base on either side. I only need a little, mabey a qt total to repair a few other novice bricklayer mistakes. The pictures should explain it better.

Thanks

You could pretty much use any refractory mortar. What did you use when you built it? I don't know if they would even sell such a small quantity - you may be best at using the home brew. I would take an angle grinder to clean out all the loose stuff plus it will give you a clean surface for the repair.

I had both homebrew and a bag from FornoBravo. I can't remember what I used where.

Thanks Tom, not looking for gifts, just advice, but is much appreciated. How comes the backyard? Any new projects?

Hope all is well with you and yours.

All is well, the latest use of your wonderful honey is this recipe, it is so freaking good it is unbelievable (I don't usually do recipes, but this one I did):

The Elusive Secret Dipping Sauce aka SDS, secret no more. | Serious Eats : Talk : Cooking and Baking


I am sending you a couple of tubes of repair refractory mortar, they fit in a caulk gun, just clean out the loose mortar in the joints, gun this stuff in and tool the joints flush with your finger.

Thanks again tom, the sauce looks great, unfortunatly all the other people in our house are pretty bland lovers when it comes to sauces. Taco time sauce is too much for them.
