Default Re: New member & mobile oven question

I've been knocking around some ideas for forms/molds if the pre-made unit is too costly. I did a fair amount of scenery & prop fabrication years back so I've got a few ideas based on my experience with that.

The Superior Clay unit is 27" dia. & around 2" thick so it seems a managable size for a first project.

I'm pretty rusty with my geometry but I come up with a 28" dia.,2" thick dome have a material volume of about 2,100 cu in which is about 2 bags of refractable mix. So $150 (?, incl. forms) for the dome wouldn't be too bad.

The superior clay stuff, when I looked at it, was silly expensive. Their largest oven is smaller than James's smallest one. Fire in the oven cooking is going to be really tight at 27"

Remember that there are lots of different kinds of refractory mix. Many are insulating, and not suitable for our work. Others need specific heat curing, which is hard to do with oven-sized units. Get the material data sheet and read it carefully. Refractory dealers are there to sell you stuff. They can help with technical stuff, but you have to read the stuff yourself.

Here's a link for a mobile pizza cart. Maybe there are ideas you can use?
