I was too impatient and found them on ebay, 14"x14" tile for $15 bucks.
I got two so I can use them for the top, back and sides. They will even cut them for $1 per cut.

Does anyone know what type of business sells galvanized sheet metal?
I'm striking out looking online.

Try an HVAC supply house - they make air ducts out of galvanized sheets.

I don't know what your application here is, but it's a seriously bad idea to apply heat to zinc.

I am going to use it as the skin for my project (see first picture on OP) there will be 1" of kaewool insulating blanket between the oven walls and the skin, I don't really know how how it will get yet. I'll have to check and see how much heat makes the galvanizing off gas.

:UPDATE - galvanized sheet metal is good to temperatures of 392F

(thank you for making me look it up, saved me alot of trouble and money$$$)

SO now I need to find non-galvanized sheet metal!

Someone said that they were unable to watch that video, so i put it in another form:

http://http://img155.imageshack.us/my.php?image=vid00011.mp4

Test results #1 : I was able to heat the bottom stone to 900* (as a test), I don't cook that high but I could get it there. Back down at 650* on the bottom stone, the top stone (a free fireplace surround in my case) was 450* at best. It didn't brown the tops very well.

Test results#2: I added a flat burner from a gas oven about 1" below the top stone. I was able to dial in 750* on the top and 650* on the bottom, it works perfectly. Thanks for the idea.

I've idly considered adding a burner to the top part of my apparatus; I'm encouraged to hear it worked for you, and wondering how you accomplished it.

Did you just scavenge a burner from an old gas oven? Do you feed both from the same propane tank? How'd you mount it?

Congrats on having a workable pizza machine.

Thanks, Mako. I've got some detailed pics, I will try to put them up this weekend.

I feel like I started reading from the middle of a book. Is there a beginning to Jet Deck's thread? I would like to see how he set up his burner system. I can't stream videos on this ship offshore.
