I will get some photos up soon. Got heat stroke from being out in the heat all day.

Nice idea with the conduit. Might adapt that when I get to it.

I agree with Dave re blanket

What size burner did you use, gas bottle or natural gas

Know what you mean about heat stroke, one day we had 37C next day 20C.

With conduit just cut down length as you do layers up dome, then cut into small pieces for top of dome.

I used a gas bottle, started one Wednesday after work from 4pm to 10pm with a raw dome and small flame got too about 100C. Continued each night to weekend and then started all day burns with larger flame whilst doing ceramic blanket install. Placed door in oven raised on blocks to allow fire to breathe. Got too 250C continued during week and then a couple of days with fire in the hole. Thursday & Friday temps up to about 350C. Did full fire on Saturday evening to clearing dome after having gas flat out all day Saturday.

Liteceeper 3 more question.

Do you have a close up of how you fastened the blanket in place?.
Also did you lay the render in one day?
and how many bags and what brand render did you use?

Love the symmetry of those render application shots. Your application technique is simple and effective with the flexible pipe.

Got a start on the decorative arch. I wont progress much before Xmas on this unless I get it insulated quickly.

You can also notice the thermocouples I made poking out. My idea is that I will cap them and use as I see fit. Might make them permanent or not. Will decide later but will only use 5 in total should I go that route.

Then the brick cap around the flue. Hey Russell does it look familiar. I used arch bricks so water can run away from the flue. Will seal later.

And what everyone likes to see FIRE. and it felt good...and even draws ok.

Last photo is the nice and tidy and clean dome no longer tidy and clean.

Was quite surprised how hot it got up top. Will get a layer of insulation [shiralite] on, on the weekend and then begin the cure while I get the blanket on.

And thank you to all those who assisted as I couldn't have achieved what I have without all the help you guys have provided to me via posts, PM's, emails and by phone.

Anyway pizza not far away.
