Been wondering this all day: Can't I use the 5 degree cuts that are left over from my solider course and use those as permanent shims? I see everyone using wood. Given that the next course needs to be at the same angle (5 degrees), seems like I could use it.

Thoughts?

Well. I finished the dome- so busy I didn't update the thread. My wife did the honors in placing the keystone. I learned the mortar is really hard to get off the bricks! Thinking about coming back with a 1/4 sander and taking that layer off.

Now to work on the vent...

I wouldn't worry about that now unles I could rig up some some type of Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) or a forced air sand blasters hood .
Be careful in that confined space with power tools, or chemicals for that matter .

I reckon that comment needs to go in the threads about "what size oven should I build" ..... One big enough to crawl in and clean !,,,...

Sorry I couldn't resist but on a serious note it does become a "confined space" in some instances.....
