photos from yesterday
today i closed the dome, finally. At one time i thought i will brake all with hummer, so much stress.



Today also bought ceramic chimney part. First one (installed) is 33cm long, about 5cm is inside the entrance part. Will add additional 50cm to it. Inside diameter is 20cm. Would it be enough for 42 oven? 83 overall length.

also, tomorrow will clean inside of the oven, add some sand to fill small gaps on the floor, will mix it with firebrick powder left from firebrick cutting.

Will start to fill the gaps from the outside and cover it with ceramic blanket. Question is, do i need to cover whole entrance of the oven with 7.5cm (3in) thick insulation (will be using 3 layer by 1in each)?

Thank you

Just goes to show that a nice build can be done with brick bolster and a BFH.

For the rest of gap-filling i bought 12pcs of clay bricks. (special clay for oven and stove makers)
One brick ~2.5kg and price is 1EUR

drying


and first crack appeared, in a strange place




got a tube of heat resistant putty, will fill it later

Guys, how do you prevent entrance firebricks from moisture and rain? Do you have covers or something? i think firebrick don't like moisture for a long time

G'day
Firebrick loves water and will soak it up water unlike a house brick which is designed to caste off water.
I live in the sub tropics, lots of rain in short bursts my own personal preference to the problem of a wet oven was to house brick over the whole thing. Not full thickness brick but 1/2 thickness. I worked for me.
If you don't like the look some serious rendering including a cover door to protect the entrance hearth bricks.
Regards dave

Cracks are pretty standard. A bit of mortar will fill them and different mortars behave differently. Just fill the cracks as it settles.

I know that firebricks will soak, but what about subzero night temps and wet bricks from a day?

And yes every oven will crack, but i was expecting dome crack :-) will fill it with hightemp putty

Wet bricks and green mortar will expand, spall and crack in freezing weather. I don't live in a subzero climate, but I did tarp and place heat lamps inside the oven to protect it on freezing nights. That should be done for any concrete or masonry until it is dry.

Your outer arch crack may be a result of there being no expansion joint between the clay liner and the outer arch. I can't really be sure by looking at the pictures, and that may not be true in this case. But, unlike materials expand differrently when exposed to heat. Even, like materials expand at different rates, if they are not heated at the same rate.
