I have used margarine for other things. Remember making a water slid for the kids, you know the type. Sloping ground, a lenght of builders plastic,running garden hose at the top end add a squirt of mums dishwashing liquid and a bunch of hot bored kids. Its great fun that till the first one gets an eye full of detergent water. The kids and me figured out to use margarine smeared on the top 1/3...the cold water stops it from melting and its extra super slippery. It wreaks the kids clothing ...but what the heck, your going to get in trouble with the childbride sometime anyway you may as well be having fun getting into trouble. ( the kids retaught me that one, also the one about the biggest older kid taking the Rap for the rest)

That reminds me of the 70's when a sheet of plastic, alcohol and a bottle of baby oil was good adult fun.

Well thought I would give you all a bit of an update. Finally got the floor down. I used a mix of fireclay and water. This I found quite difficult to work with as it was very hot when I did it and the insulation and brick really sucked the water out of the mix. I couldnt use the notched trowel as it would just scrape the whole mix along with it. Ended up soaking the bricks in water and pouring water over the insulation first. Didn't notch the mortor and just trowelled it as level as I could and tapped the bricks down level. Did one, max two bricks at a time but I think it has worked out well in the end ( apart from the heat stroke)
Didn't see the post from cobblerdave until I had finished as I think this would have helped heaps

You aint supposed to stick the hearth bricks down, they need to move with the expansion of the oven.

This weekend had a bit of time and cut all the bricks for the soldier course. At first I was going to use half bricks cut square for this and build the courses up from there but in the end decided to use the full brick and cut the angle. Figured it would give me a good guide on the first course and I can use the small wedge offcuts later in the build to use as fillers. Just used a string line from the centre of the oven to the top of the brick.
So next step is to mortor then all together .
