My Brick Selection ok?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Ok managed to get time start the build again.

just have pour the slab for oven and then build.

I have the following bircks already and want see if they will suit?

i got the red bricks for 50 euor and tapered furnace bricks for free.

i have 120 red brick and 55 fire bricks.

the fire bricks are left overes from a furnace re lining job in my last job and are very heavy bricks. just want see if they are ok to use

the red bricks came from old fire place and are the old handmade tyre brick. the only issue i have is the have a hollow section.

I plan use arched bricks for my tunnel donw, the red bricks for 3 block high side wall before the arch and on their face for the floor.

Those "free" bricks will work fine in many part of your build with the exception of the hearth floor (due to the taper direction), they may be super duty, similar to what I used in my build. If they are super duty (high alumina content) they are a little tough on saw blades. Can't comment of the others though.

Maybe contact AMAC on the WFO forum, he is from Ireland and just finished his build last year. Maybe he can give you better info on what is available in your neck of the woods.

All of the ovens on the site you linked have serious design issues. I would rethink them as a viable option.

They don't have insulation under the hearth and little if any on the dome. The firebrick will take a long time to heat up, conversely they will hold that heat for a long time. The frogged brick should work OK, but the frog is going to be an issue. How do you plan on cutting them to use?
