Default Re: 48" brick oven from Melbourne

Dario,

Are you still going to leave the dome brick without insulation? If so this will act as a heat sink. If you are just placing CaSi under the floor only, it is better than the sand but just be aware of the dome wall sitting on the sand will the cause heat loss just like the floor would of on top of sand.

To answer your question about the CaSi, no glue, just stagger seams. Level with a 50% fire clay/sand dry mix or slurry. If slurry, need to coat CaSi to prevent from sucking up all the water too quickly.

If i need to glue them together what material i should use ?
The stand is massive, i didn't know it's going to be that big ...hehe.

Thank you for the input and advice.
G'day
Its critical to insulate under the hearth floor and the dome if its outside your hearth. Its good to insulate under you entrance hearth as well.
If you have a flat top to your stand you might not have to level the ceramic board and because its a uniform product usually you might not find the need to level the hearth on it as well. Your the builder in reality and you must make these decisions yourself. Well answer any questions and heaps of pics will help
Regards dave

G'day,
I went today to a Melbourne Fire Brick Company and picked the CalSil boards my self, I had a chat with Ben and he recommends to start all over again it's just bloody hard to nock my baby down now at this stage.
Very hard decision!!! I know most of you recommend me to start all over again as well. Hmmm.
All my work goes down the window.

Hey Dario - Tough decision. You will probably be a lot happier knowing it is done right and will pass the test of time. It will go up a lot quicker the second time with the experience you have gained and if you do it right you will know that it will still be turning out good food for the children of your grandchildren.

The cost will be about the same but done right it will work a lot better.

Is it not possible just to pull up your fire brick layer and cut the board to fit?

How much of the dome have you built?

Acrigg,

The heat sink problem would still exist since the dome bricks are sitting on the sand too.

Dario,

I second and third that the rebuild will be much faster than the original build and in the long run the better oven performance will far outweigh the setback.

These sources alluded me but I sussed them out and that allowed me to build the oven I did. Meeting my requirements to the letter and I sourced materials at go I'd process. Do it right and you won't regret it do it wrong and you will regret not listening.

I pulled mine down twice as it wasn't right.Don't settler on second best.
