Thanks lancer, I agree the crack is a minimal issue. At least I get to cook a turkey and ham in the oven for Christmas. I will post some photos for sure.

Cheers,

Steve

Thumbs up Re: New 36inch castable build in Brisbane

Gudday Steve
Hairline cracks in the render don't count for anything. Chase them out with a screwdriver, fill with paintable silastic and paint over it. I had a couple radiating from the chimney I treated them like that and they never came back

No, heck no! Its a crack in a certain light...

In the days of old when brave men set out on wooden sailing ships they always brought along an optimist for just this purpose...because he is usually right. :b:

Gudday not at all. An Expansion joint is the two that live at both edges of the oven entrance. You can't find them cold. But they are there when the doors on and ovens hot. The entrance is angle iron and they start there and climb up the mortar joints into the chimney. Haven't cracked a brick or gone into the oven so we get along real fine.
Regards dave

Thanks everyone for the support.

It looks like in the new year I will add a new feature - Expansion joint(s). I will let the oven settle in a few months first.

Cheers,

Steve
