I finally took a close look at some of my extras. The mortar is not heat -stop. It is a brand name called Sairset. The spec sheet says its good to 1900 degress (C) and is 43 % alumina. Has anyone used this particular product ?

BestestCoolest,
You've offered a metric measerement on a good ole US of A site.
Is the Pacific NW immune, or do you plan to emigrate? And if so, what becomes of your oven?
Be careful eh my friend. Even I live in fear.
Stop.

Not to forget the old French reaumur which is 1520 degrees. Only of interest because just about the only people to use it are the Italians.

I run the laboratory in an oil refinery. Everything measured in the lab is generally in metric. We then have to translate all the data into english units for the operators. We then have to translate into the really archaric units for the oil industry. ( lbs of salt per 1000 bbls or API gravity) So I guess I am bi-unit or maybe bi-scale, or just horibly confused. ( not to be confused with bi anything else )

As far as emigrating. Nope.. I would love to visit other places, but I moved to the pacific NW because I love rain and clouds. In the middle of the US you get lots of bugs, no mountains and tornados. In the south, lots of bugs and hurricanes. In the NE, horible humity, hurricanes and tons of snow. If I emigrated to your neck of the woods I would have to spend 3 years learning the local dialect so I could avoid asking for your daughter's hand in marriage when I really just wanted a tall cool one.

In the beautiful Pacific NW, 2 or 3 bugs ( slugs, wasps and a few spiders). A varied and beautiful forest. Snow arrives for about a week. Just long enough to enjoy, not long enough to become a pain. The only large hazards are earthquakes and volcanos. I grew up in San Diego / LA so earthquakes are no big deal.
Just a little extra engineering so that when the earthquakes and volcanos take out my power, My pizza oven will still be standing I'm thinking that (when I get it done) my oven will stand until the day I die and maybe I can be cremated in it !!!

Now there's a cool idea! I wonder if my family would go for it?

Just wait until your inside the dome cleaning mortar joints. You get a few visions of the bricks just crumbling in on you while your in there. Can you imagine (you probably will while your inside) a big earthquake just at that moment? I sure did!

Hope your oven doesn't stand only till the moment you die
