so if i have this options.

1. pavers sand (is that just sand or like UtahBeehiver said sand + fire clay?)
2. duragrout
3. refractory mortar

what would be the best pick.

sorry to torture you guys so much with my silly questions but the more I try to search net about it myself the more options come in view and I get even more puzzled


EDIT: btw does duragrout still expands once it is cured? i was under the impression that it only expands initially while in wet/plastic stage to give even contact between two objects but then it because stable?

If the cal sil is getting wet then so is your oven and you need to rethink how to keep the oven dry.

There is nothing wrong with a thin layer of everyday normal sand.

From reading the data sheet its for grouting into place rigid structures, like the base of towers, bridges etc.

took my side frames down today without any issues but now i wish i believed in to effectiveness of the reciprocating saw trick bit more, i done couple left to right on each end but i can see that if i done couple more i would have near perfect edges.
saying that I can live with what i got, turned out not too bad.

Here is a thread link on Lburou's forno bravo treasures archives. It is one I started where I had links to quite a number of polished concrete WFOs.
