Default Re: Bricks - UK Source????

My packs are still sealed till I use them...I may open them up an it be sawdust
so cant vouch for it yet...but your right it was a great price...

The bricks are from http://www.build-center.co.uk/build/index.html

they are marshalls croft stone and should have been 4 per brick...
was just walking out of the depot and saw a mixed pallet of large and small bricks 100 in total for .40p per brick....and you thought I was lucky with the firebrick...

Again if you look on ebay you can get this stuff very cheap left overs from wall projects etc

Ross,

Be careful with getting rid of them. If you split them, then you will end up with two sizes of the halves, and each level should be done with one size. Also, make allowance for "mis-splits".

Are they tapered in two axes/dimensions (for a dome), or in one (for an arch)?

When you have worked out how many you need (or have finished the dome and arch) I'd be tempted to buy the surplus off you, if there is a sufficient number left, or swap for something else you need. We'll have to go to IKEA sometime within the next few weeks anyway, and the nearest one is in Warrington ... would be a chance for a face-to-face meeting too

Firebricks I found here and here for instance.

There are other places, but they are more geared towards dealing with industry. I've just had a very surprised response from one of them, essentially sending me somewhere else (to Purimachos - the second link above, to be precise).

Check with your local building supplies though - you may find that the delivery may be cheaper.

Best wishes,

W.
