Looks like it is one of those heatset mortars. You shouldnt have any problems with that unless water
seeps into the dome. Frances and dvonk have used the same type of mortar. It has expansion qualities that cement doesn't have and it doesn't set like cement.

Todays update! Im not even sure if anyone is even reading this but what the hey I will post it anyway maybe someone will get something out of it down the track!
I managed to get a bit done today. I tapered bricks leading into chimmney like I saw on this forum, Im not sure if it makes the flow any better? has anyone done the same thing?

A question regarding chimmney!
Reading through the forno plans it says that the flue should be 3 or 4 times the area of the opening height? does that just mean that if my opening is 30 odd cm that the flue ht should be 90 to 120 cm high? would appreciate any help with this.
cheers

Cant believe I went out last night and pulled the form out from the arch to see if it would support itself! then gave it a shove to see how strong it was! needless to say here is the new arch!

I admit it can be challenging but I guess that's where the fun is... trying to cut the brick to the right shape to make it fit was a fun obsession of mine. You're doing great. Just remember measure twice, do once

well I managed to work out the inward moving circle with reference to joining up with arch , be it a little unconventional it seems to be holding and strong so , I will move forward!
