Which store? I've asked at Inglewood, Morley and Balcatta for ref. cement, fire clay and rock wool. Got blank stares or confused information at all three stores, and couldn't get any of these.

Hi, I found the refactory cement I used of the shelf, would crack here in W.A.
I tried mixing it wet and dry and soaking the bricks, the so called air dryed mix I wouil stay away from and suggest using Forno Bravos recipe,fire clay,white sand and lime.

Thanks for the info

It sounds like if white washed sand works so would plasterers sand

Brickies sand must have too much loam
