Exclamation Re: sophias new restaurant

any tips about cutting the angles on my bricks ?? it seems that as i go up a simple wedge is not sitting right and causing a gap at the front seem guess i might have to put up with it as i have to cut them by hand as the cutter i have built is not a real table saw but a 9 inch grinder with a 12 inch blade mounted to a box photos on face book

If you're cutting your bricks flat on the plywood deck then you'll only get part of the cut you need. If you add a wedge that is the same angle as the face of the last ring, under the brick you're cutting, then you'll get your cheek cuts.

Watch your fingers!!

Place two bricks at about the angle they would be on that ring, observe the gap and cut accordingly. You can draw a template from cardboard for each ring to make it easier to keep them consistent.

Difference between inner and outer face width depends on your dome radius.

Breathe easy, as long as it's not structural it can be patched and if it's structural it likley can be fixed... These ovens are forgiving.

Others here will have first hand knowledge of what and how to fix the crack. Post a picture and it'll help to find the right help.

No worries mate...happens all the time. I would not even bother with it for now, there will be more as time goes on. My oven didn't settle down for months.
Good luck on your adventure. when do you open?

c went in despit the heat and was a few hair linn cracks no temps loss on to only by the chimminy and pointed and warmed the repair and will refire tommorow only lost heat in the front near the chimminy but the crack from the dome does not follow the crack in the insulating dome may recover the insulating dome with a further 2 inches later have thought I didn't cure enough with not having a door over night a 44 incher requires all night to help dry oops its all a learning curve
