looking at 50mm of render based on most recommendations,

well tomorrow I will take out the tapon tdc and lock in the the wires holding the blanket in place. Everything seems to be working out well, Blanket is wet on the surface. Will keep the curing device running for most of tomorrow and then use heat beads Monday and hopefully by Wednesday I will be ready for wood fire.

Cranked up the curing device to 4 rings at 11pm.

Must say I am impressed with the Hebel as a temp door. inside temp now at 190c, outside temp at about 60c.

Most impressive.

1205am plastic over dome, condensation galore, steam coming off and around the flue area.
Guessing everything that needs to happen is happening.

Both gas cylinders are empty, tomorrow I will get swap and go and fire one up until empty full bore. then will fire up using heat beads then wood. hopefully clearing temps by tuesday

Oasis, what's the advantage to a curing device over burning wood?

Look like you have God's Blessing, you must be doing things right.
Keep up the good work.

It is so hot and humid here now that I think the sun must be coming from Satan. I can only work from dawn (5am) until around 9am, then retire into the aircon until 5 pm and get a bit more done until dark. In the afternoon we pray for the sun to go down .I don't know how guys labouring all day can handle it. Really looking forward to skiing in Japan the first two weeks of Jan.

No large flames, allows oven to heat evenly. a slow and steady cure might minimise cracking. When I took off plastic it was drenched and stream then came off the oven.

Will heat with curing device for another day Tuesday will get done heat into the floor with heat beads, then maybe wood on Thursday. Away next weekend so won't be able to fire it up until Sunday.

Well I have got the insulation blanket on and the chook wire. Fired oven with 4 rings of curing device, whilst doing it. What I didn't notice was that temperature increased gradually over the day reaching the temps I put up earlier but the top of the dome cleared and the yin and yang appeared. damn I missed it.

I also put a third layer of Insulation blanket at the top of the dome and one strip around the bottom of the dome. Thought it would help prevent heat loss plus had some spare left over blanket.

Dropped temp back to 3 burners felt I was over doing it.

Made some modifications to the curing device [thanks David] after going to a plumber mates place [see previous post]

So I guess the hard work is completed.

Only the Render and front decorative arch to go but both can wait until after Xmas. Concentrating now on getting the water out of the oven. As I wont have next weekend to crank it up.

Oh I took temperature at the bottom of the Hebel in stand it was around 38c
