Hey guys.

Need to know what the consensus is on my question above.

Thx Wayne

Yeah I thought that too but was hoping to hear naaahhhhh leave it alone. But will grind it out and re-point.

Thought I would post some photo's with the dome gauge back in place and was surprised how damn close it is to accurate, how easy it was to get it in. Looks like my dome is now at its maximum height with 5 and a bit courses left. Will need to cut a couple of bricks to thinner sizes to accommodate a reasonable sized Keystone.

With this weekend coming then 2 3 day weekends after that, hopefully will get to keystone or close over next 3 weekends. fingers crossed

I have another question. I have noticed that some builds have placed some sort of tie on their domes to tie in the insulation blanket.

Is this necessary? if so how would you go about it in the situation that I am going to put a coat of Shiralite over the dome prior to the Blanket?

Nice work Collin. As far as the crack in the arch, I have one similar, yes I look at it then decide leave well enough alone, adds character plus it is on you inner arch too where it is not as obvious. Oven cook fine with or without the crack. But is up to you. I used rebar wire to hold down my insulation and then the chicken wire. I fasten the rebar wire to TapCons (concrete screw) drilled in at strategic spots. You can see the wire and chicken wire on my picassa link. Good job

Hey Russell rechecked your Picasso album - how much insulation did you use blanket, vermiculite?. Seems substantial. The tapcon screws are drilled into what? Mortar, brick?

2 times 1.5" ceramic fiber blanket and 2-3" of perlcrete and 1/2-3/4" strucco. Drilled into concrete hearth about an inch from the dome or as close as I could because the screws would be covered the the CF and percrete. and on the sides at mortar joints. The screws are not set to hold the world just enough to add tension to the rebar wire to hold the CF and something for the chicken wire to fasten to.

PS that piece of SS for a thermal break looks very familiar...........

Thanks Russell The cf Looks more than that. Must say am glad I got past the arch. Take grinder to inside hopefully this weekend. Think I will follow your lead with the tapcon and wire. Might have to rethink as I'm putting shiralite on first. Any suggestions? Do you see a problem with half inch chicken wire?

SS cost $10 and yes very familiar.

I am not familiar with shiralite I remember you talking about it earlier in your thread. I only rendered my dome because I had some leftover homebrew materials as I was building the oven. My chick wire was 1" so 1/2" should be even better. Make yourself a curved float for your shiralite or perlite or vcrete, it helps alot to keep the shape of the dome consistent.

Russel shiralite is similar to vermiculate perlite. Apparently when applied it looks like insulating brick.
