Default Re: Nick's Build in Sunbury

Hi All,

Read Karagi Dudes build last night, that is one fantastic looking oven.

Is there any ideas on if it is best to lay the bricks for the dome? on the insulation next to brick floor or on top of the brick floor?

I have also read that is laying on the brick floor put some card board in between the first course and the floor so the mortar does not bond the dome to the floor so it will float. Does this hold try for laying next to the floor or is it not necessary as you are laying on the bed of sand/fireclay?

Hope that makes sense to some one.

Thanks,

Nick

There should be no direct bond between the oven floor and the dome. If putting floor inside the dome wrap the outside if the floor with corregated cardboard, it is also a good idea to tape the seam between the floor wrap and the floor cover so mortar does not fall into the space between the two pieces, and cover the floor so as not to drop mortar on the floor bricks while building. If putting dome on the floor cut a piece of cardboard larger than the floor and build your dome on the cardboard.

Clear??

Thanks Chip.

I assume there is no right or wrong way of doing it? Dome on floor or next to?

Thanks,

Nick

The theory is that if you need to replace any bricks in the floor it can be done for all bricks if inside the dome. If dome is on the floor some of the outer bricks could not be replaced.

The middle bricks ar more likely to have wear so it may be a non issue, my floor is inside my dome but I am not sure it makes a difference.

Hi Nick

My floor is also inside the Dome with about 4 mm gap to dome.

My view [whether right or wrong] is that bricks will expand if dome bricks on the hearth it will all expand together hence having the dome float on the hearth. Having them separated they in theory move separately.

As I said not sure whether one is better than the other but just my logical brain thinking keeping the two separate.

Ok. I am going to put the floor inside the dome and use some cardboard vertically between the floor and the first course of the dome.

I assume the mortar for the first course in between the dome bricks that is sitting on the fireclay/sand levelling compound does not matter?

Thanks,

Nick
