The IT needs to be specific to the dimensions of your oven, so you may want to make.

But they are super easy to make. Cheesesteak has one of the simplest, cheapest approaches to this on his thread

Get a strap-type door hinge, a piece of 2" x ~ 3/8" x ~ 24" hardwood, and a simpson strongtie bracket. Put that together with some hardware and you've got yourself an indispensible tool

Unless you want to take 3 or 4 times as long to build your oven or to have it 'perfectly semi-spherical', give them a miss and just use a quadrant (half a semicircular) plywood pattern as the bricks will stick with the home brew right up to the last 3 courses.
You can easily build the dome in 2 easy days that way.
I completed Hendo's oven (the originator of the Indespensible tool) after he died. My oven was built in a couple of week-ends whereas Hendo's took 18 months and he had a bricklaying instructor do his brickwork. You might like to check out both our builds to get some ideas/suggestions to make the job easier.
Cheers.

Not all of us will complete the oven in the same amount of time per method used. Do compare the builds as nissanneil suggests but compare several other builds also, then make your game plan.

Just sayin'
