Hi Damon

The waterproof cardboard were just separators between pavers on a pallet, i had delivered and kept just in case i needed to use them. Had it prior to, having, even a thought of a WFO. Have used it to cut the templates, dome sizing, and many other uses. Quite handy. I have the ply template as you have seen but am using the cardboard one for quick checks and around the arch tranistion.

Russell if you see this (from your build) what are red heads for the mount?

Hi Colin,

It is brand name for a concrete anchor bolt. I know some builds have been using TapCons which are concrete screws too. How's the build coming along?

Question Re: new build in werribee

Gudday Colin
How are you dealing with excess mortar on the face of the brick resting on the arch guide?
Regards dave

Russell we call them dynabolts over here, but stainless steel ones I think I will try and find some, I have been on r and r and gone to Bright for the autumn festival, so only completed part of the next course before leaving, my daughter is heading to England for two years. Had to stop oven work to prepare for going away party, will have a day when I return before back to work (paid) to hopefully get that course finished and next at least started this coming weekend.

Dave haven't thought about it but guessing I will try to make little mess as possible. If there is mortar i will use a flap disk fine grit on angle grinder to get residue off.

Hey Russell



Did you take photos or can you remember the angles of tilt over the last 6 courses on your jig. Using deejayoh, spreadsheet calculator they make reference to up to 80 degrees, in around 7 deg increments as you go up. That seems massive to me making the tilt on the jig almost vertical. Does not make sense. I'm not saying his measurement are wrong but can't see it. Guessing I will though. Any comments are appreciated.

Tend to see these things visually. I think Karagi dudes method is a good one.
Basically it's take the measurement of the bottom of the inverted V between 2 bricks and cut it all off one brick. Thus it should fit into the first uncut brick
Or if you want to cut both bricks to form a more vertical joint ...1/2 the measurement off both. As the rows of brick get higher if course 1/4 bricks need to be used stop the gape at the bottom becoming to large.
I'm of course not an expert by any means on brick cutting having built mine with angle grinder and bulster, but I do know a lot about gapes my oven has plenty of all types( thank god for three things , the mortar at the back, gravity & domes being self supporting!
Regards dave

Colin,

My Picassa album has all the pics I took there a some of each course. My build was prior to DJ's spreadsheet. I used a different table which was done by JCG31, the tables or spreadsheet get you in the ball park and since every build has it own variables you have to make adjustments that fit your build. Just take your time and again, don't pre-cut a whole course, do 4-5 see how they fit and adjust as needed. The width of the bricks become smaller, as small as a 1/4 brick. Patience is the key, grasshopper!!!

Colin I found the "cut one side only" method does work. It becomes tricky when making adjustments, I found myself cutting too much angle which means the front face "turns" in. Still though my saw blade has done half the work.
