Sorry I didnt realize before that things usually come pre mixed in the states.

Dave, I bought type N masonry cement (not mortar) which I believe is 1/2 Portland and 1/2 lime. So shouldn't mix be 2 parts mix:3 parts sand:1 part fireclay?

Dave,
We have to look at the "wording" very close here in the states. Type N mortar would have the sand pre-added. (just add water). Type N masonry cement would be 1/2 Portland and 1/2 hydrated lime (or the equivelant). The sand would have to be added to make mortar.

Edit: That is two posts that I replied to that ya'll have already been covered. Sorry .

Rain finally passed through and sun came out today. Tried the home brew and was much easier to work with. Did most of the next course. Won't win any beauty prizes but should hold together.

Back on the job. For a while there I thought you might be taking another holiday to get over the first holiday
Now your into IT territory I picked up on a comment by Greenman on another thread. Basically what he said is because the IT tool doesn't rotate directly on the hearth but on the old axle of the wheel of the caster it has a built in discrepancy. His figures ( from memory) was his build would be 10 mm out (approx 1/2 in) by the time he got to the top of the dome and he had made a 1mm adjustment to every course to compensate. Food for thought.
On the home front I have managed to finish the brickwork over the dome have also "brick tiled" the surrounds . Looks so much better balanced and I happy the go from one of the ugliest builds on the forum to one that I'm pleased with.
The girth of the dome has become a little more "portly" with the additional brick and now covers the stand edge to edge bar an in either side . I measured it at 1750 mm or 70 ins. Hard to believe there's a 42 in oven in there, suppose when you think about it 1/2 of it would be insulation.
Thought I might have to extent the chimney a bit but it worked out fine and with the buttressing is a lot better balanced.

Actually, I'm starting to plan next trip (probably in August). I definitely like the new look of your oven. Regarding the IT, I have it pretty centered on the hearth. I've actually been shortening it slightly as I want to bring the dome height down an inch or so. I finished off the current course today so it's back to the brick cutting for the next level. Regards, Bruce

Cut brick for the next course and laid out using modeling clay. We are hosting a book club tomorrow so I may not be able to work on the oven. The book is "Game Change" which is about the 2008 presidential election. So I plan to bake a few Chicago style pizzas to tie into the book.

Pizzas were a hit, surprisingly most of the group had never tried a Chicago style pizza.
