Hey Chip,

In your reply were you referring to McGills Warehouse or Harbison Walker from the post directly above yours from WJW?

Sorry for having to ask but I just want to make sure I understand correctly.

Nate

That must be a sale price or a goof on the wbsite. I picked up a roll two weeks ago from McGills at over twice that price. The $23 was the price per roll if you bought a pallet. Grab them before it goes back up.

Any suggestions on how many rolls to cover a 42" build?
FB says a 50 sq ft roll will cover a 43" oven. These are 25 sq ft, so I am thinking 2 rolls will give me 2" of insulation - but wanted to check my math

suggestions? It is a smoking deal

You need three 50-square foot rolls.

The McGill's HF10, which is the two-inch-thick stuff you're seeing at the good price, is only 25 square feet (2 feet wide, 12.5 feet long). It's not enough to completely cover a 42" oven once. With 12.5 linear feet, you'd wrap the lower half of the dome, and the top would still be exposed.

The McGill's HF11 is one inch thick and comes on a 50 square foot roll (2 feet wide, 25 feet long). One 50-foot roll will cover at 42" dome once, so to get 3 inches, you need three rolls. It looks like the HF10 and HF11 are the same price right now.

Azatty -
thanks for the response -
Just to make sure I am clear, I think you are saying 3 x 50 sqft of the 1" to give me 3" of insulation.

and since the 50 sqft at 1" is the same as the 25 sqft at 2", I am better off going with 3 of the former vs. 4 of the latter.

Got it

Also noted that you have ordered from them previously. Was this from their website, or did you pick up? I am a little scared off by their reviews

TIA

Dennis

FYI -
Just to close the loop on this, I went ahead and ordered - figured if there was a problem with delivery, my CC company would keep me whole. Three 24" x 25' x 1" rolls @ $23 each.

The shipping they billed with the order was only $33, but they called me pretty quickly after I placed the order to tell me that was a mistake - and the actually shipping was $60

Even with the change, you are looking at $43 a roll delivered, which is super cheap.

I'll post back here once it arrives...

Their fire bricks are dear though.
Actually their firebricks arent bad Al, they are insulators not dense, so that price is quite good.
