Looking for a Forno bravo dealer somewhere on the way from Oshkosh WI to Toronto that has high heat morter IN STOCK.!! Special thanks to Forno bravo on cheapifying their 36" kit. Not enough fire bricks or morter to actually complete the oven... And customer service reps that can't tell me who has stock. After calling 4 of them I'm just pissed that I didn't source all the materials elsewhere. $&@$& you Forno Bravo!!! Venting complete!

Hello
I'm Mark from MN. I'm planning on using Hi Cast from Alsey for mortar application. The inner, tighter joints, I will use flue set. Does this make sense? I talked to a manager today at FB. He seemed to think it would work well. Hi Cast is a castable fire clay. Sending photos of my progress. I used landscape blocks to build up the support and am ready to start the dome and arch.

Looking for firebrick in central New Jersey. I have contacted many locations and the only place I found it was a fireplace dealer 2 minutes from me but they want 5.95 a brick! The other place was Clayton block, but they had low duty firebrick for 1.08 a block, but fire temps only went to 2,000, and they were 8 1/4 x 4. Anyone know a location it would be very helpful. Have my base poured and looking to combo order my brick and cinder block.

I will send you firebrick. $1 / brick. You pay freight. How much do you need? It is used and without mortar.

Maybe ask this question under the Aussie Region Forum thread. You may get better info there.

Gudday Moley
Good advice that, start in the Aust section.
Sounds like you onto you secound oven? Moved house or you helping someone?
I don't know how available ceramic blanket is in tassie, I suspect you might have to have it sent from the mainland. Worthwhile though.
With the fireclay its importance in the mortar is to make it sticky and workable more than its refractory properties which aren't required for the temps possible in a WFO. You can substitute powder clay without a problem. Even delete it , a squit of dish washing liquid will make the mortar more plastic.
I hope you do post your new build we have not to my knowledge had a tassie build your knowledge will be invaluable to other tassie builders in the future.
Regards dave
