Thanks Dave.
I work away from home so I'll do some checking when I'm finished my swing at work.

Vermiculite..... Is it advisable to keep this layer as dry as possible throughout the build process? I'm also looking at buying a kit from NSW that has everything you need to construct a 1200mm oven. The reason being that I can get this all delivered to my door and don't have to go to Brisbane. Has anyone out there bought/built from such a kit?

Ashley.

Pre-cut kits and the like are good. Probably takes the learning/adventure out of it and makes it a bit like Lego I expect. They will all work at some level or another and it depends how deep your pockets are because some of the kits are not cheap by comparison.

I found half of the satisfaction from sourcing the materials and keeping the costs reasonable (which I managed to do). No need to sacrifice the quality of the build either.

If you are time poor a kit would look good I suppose.

Hi Ash

I agree with what others have said that you do not need any special skills and what you have done already looks great. Looks like you have a nice big area you are building there.

Re suppliers, agree Claypave for bricks, you might be able to find a local distributor. Bellis is who I used for cal sil and ceramic blanket. Mr Stoves for the flue.

It is an extremely satisfying experience!

Cheers

Mark

Gudday

I double checked Forno Aus still doesn't run a kit as such. Shame

Have a look on Gumtree. I found unused firebricks for 50c each. Better deal than $4 each from the manufacturer and your local sheet metal shop will make your S/S stuff at the right price if you go and have a chat to them - 8" flue and chimney and cowl for $180.

That is part of the thrill of the chase!!

Hi Dave

This is the list of contents in the kit. So it's not really a precut kit but just one with almost everything in it.

Hi ash

Sounds good. I would personally go a little thicker on the floor if you are looking for retained heat. The norm on this site appears to be at least 50mm. Most seem to opt for 75mm. Any way just my view. Is listen to those that have been around longer than myself. That's what I did...

Thanks Colin. I will post some more pictures soon. I have done a 3 1/2 inch layer of vermiculite already. With that, ceramic board and floor tiles I thought it would be enough. If it's not tell me now before I get any further.

Regards
Ashley
