Colin,

The droop is minor and you can adjust after you clear the arch, just make the adjustments over a couple courses rather than one. On a old post I missed. I did use chicken wire after I applied the second layer of CF insulation but under the Perlcrete. I just took my time cutting and fitting the CF, it is really nasty stuff, fibers get airborne really easy, so where a dust mask. Where long sleeves too, better yet some Aussie suggested by a pair of disposable paper coveralls then you just chuck in the garbage can when you are done. There is light at the end of the tunnel on your build.

The sheets normally come in 8 x 4 ft size so an 8 ft length is probably your max size, but your sheet metal worker will need to have equip to handle that length.you can get them to manufacture the length with a slight taper so another length can slide inside the first.It's pretty neat.

Hey Colin, it's looking good. You will find it easier once you are above the arch. Anyway, a minor droop will make no difference to the finished oven at all.

Hi Sharkey/David/Russell

Thanks for the compliments couldn't have done this without all the support and great info guys. Yeah the droop as I measured is around 5-10mm. I'm going to finish the course then lay the bricks either side of the arch, one back from the transition. that hopefully will allow me to adjust and work out the right cuts.

But it isn't much and as you point out I it will still work with or without the droop.

Like most cannot wait until I get past this bit, it is really slow going. Didn't help running out of sand.

Hey Colin, I had the same problem with the droop when nearing the top of the arch and found once I cleared the arch the droop seamed to level out with the course's by it self.

Hi found this the other day. What do you think? Not quite what I was after, but guessing free as they are in a sort of a bin

Are they SS or Aluminum? If SS I would at least snag one you can buff it out and it will be pretty. Alot better than $700 for Selkirk from the USA. If aluminum, temperature of the flue gas might be an issue.
