You can build an oven out of a pile of elephant manure and clay, I guess. Up to the builder. But the conversation deserves an accurate assessment of the appropriateness of the material. Personally, if I was going to go to all the trouble of building forms to build a cast oven, I would spend the couple hundred extra to get the right material for the job. But that is just me.
Where have you been? There was more than one thread about using this mix for casting...I thought you had joined in too.

As I said, I'm no expert on such matters, so I usually don't chime in on this sort of thing. Just was surprised that those with actual expertise had not chimed in.

Funny about the elephant crap comment.
