Fire brick for sale! 500 bricks
I live southeast of the Denver area in Colorado. I have 500 standard sized fire bricks and maybe 20+ larger sized fire bricks (various sizes 14"x14"x2, 9"x9"x3"). I built a 42" pompeii last year and it has been wonderful, but I am not going to build another one short of an act of God catastrophe! I had pallets and pallets of these things for years from a the demolition of a foundry. Have sold them for every purpose under the sun before I built my oven. The bricks were dry stacked on inner walls of the foundry with no mortar. Have had them stored outside. I thought I would put them up here to see if there was any interest in this area for enough bricks to build a mongo oven! I really live out in the sticks, so selling smaller quantities has little appeal from a logistics standpoint. I was getting $2.00 for small quantities and less ($1.50) for larger quantities. Can send pictures.

How much are new firebricks in Colorado? In California new Pacific Clay firebricks are $1.08 and new Muddox firebricks are $1.18.

Are prices so much higher in other parts of the country that people are buying used foundry bricks for almost twice what new bricks cost in California? :confused:

Over $2.00 per brick for 26% alumina. Are you in need of brick? Or is this just a friendly note to suggest I am way of on my price? Checked Rio Grande, Shale and Threewitt Cooper. New Fire Brick Independent seller on Craig'slist this morning.

Let me know if this satisfies your question.

Re: Fire brick for sale! 500 bricks
I'm am in need of firebrick (that's why I looked at your ad to begin with).. That being said, I don't need many more and I'm sure it wouldn't make sense to ship it from Colorado.

But to answer your real question, I have no idea if your price is way off. If I knew your price was way high I would have simply said so.

The reason for the post was that I was blown away that used firebrick was going for two dollars or a buck fifty. But if that's a fair price, so be it. I had no idea that there was such disparity of price from one part of the country to another. But if that's the deal, and it's a reasonable price, then it is what it is.
