Mind if I ask what may be a dumb question? What are "eyelets"?

Rushhour...I used stainless steel screws which had a closed circle at their end...perhaps there is a more precise technical term for them. I placed them at the base of the oven where it meets the insulation in the refractory mortar. Once set, they are a great way to affix wire in an attempt to stabilize the insulating blankets.

You are really better to make them from thin wire. The heavier they are the more heat they transfer to the outside. In kiln building, blanket is held in place with very thin high temperature wire for this reason. The wire can be placed in the mortar joins between the bricks.

Ohh ok...Thanks
I am doing something similar. Since my Premio is mounted on a steel frame, my plans were to just tack weld very small washers around the base and run thin wire thru

Thanks, Peter! My husband had his surgery today and silly gullible friends have offered to help with the mortar - yay! I got the eyelets and will remember your warning about the fiberglass blanket. Hope to have pizza by mid-October (we call that 'winter').

Elise,
Good to hear you are pulling in the troops. Comment about eyelet size makes sense..but I have not experienced a problem so far. Weather in Vt is changing as well...winter will not be far off !

A trick I learned in the hot sweaty summers in California was that the nastyness of handling spun glass products could be mitigated by liberally applying talc powder to exposed skin.

Certainly it's wise to do your best to cover the skin; however, something about the talc supposedly closes your pores to the glass fibers. I have used the trick extensively for crawling around in attics with amazing success. If it's cool enough, this may not be helpful, but for those in warm weather while applying their insulation I wholeheartedly recommend it.
