Gudday cobblerdave, I can also make a good heavy duty step for them to stand on whereas I can't really dig a hole for myself. Excellent point mate!

So the 2' 2" distance from wall to oven doesn't cause anyone concern? (I hope)

After a couple of days off for fiesta Sho is once again chipping holes for the posts. It was also fiesta in the city so the folks from the Sony repair shop closed up and went, so no camera yet.

Once the holes are chipped the post foundations and post metal bar set and the posts poured it will be time for the table on which the oven sits. The whole table is going to be refractory cement and 7" perlite under the brick.

The refractory cement mix, see what you guys think...

1 Portland cement
1 red clay
1 stucco mix (can't find lime)
3 sand

Thoughts?

Make your own lime, you told us they are shipping lime out just metres from your home.

Its dead simple to make, just dont splash it in your eyes......
Burn the line in a fire then follow this vid. AKA slaking.

The fire drives out the carbon in the lime, when you reuse the slaked lime the lime adsorbes the carbon from the atmosphere and reconstitutes back into limestone, neat huh?

Gudday brickie
That was triple scarey ... But a few goggles later I found a 40 sec u tube with two New Zealanders cooking thier lime in a 44 gal drum in the back blocks of "Whokilledamoocowe". The processs sounds scarey still but approached with a bit of knowledge and pre-planing should be do-able.

The "table" or slab only needs to be normal everyday concrete with insulation on top of it.

That is going to be a very rich mix, and you will need more sand so it doesn't get shrink cracking as it dries.

Usually modern stucco mix is portland based, with fine sand and polymers.

Hey guys

If its for the base of the oven eg. Hearth/table. Where are the stones? Lancer should you not be putting the oven on a reinforced concrete base.

I assumed lime was in the stucco but it didn't actually say on the bag.

Yes this was my original plan and I think I'll go back to it. Also because of your vids and others I found after viewing it I now know more about the process. :b:
