Kind of a sarcastic tone, but I get the point. Don't worry about any more contradicting advice from me. You da man .

It was, but i wasn't aiming it at anyone specifically. Thanks for that.

If you have contradicting advice what do I care?..back it up with facts, not opinions. I've said before I'm not here for my ego...if that's how you want to read it, so be it.

An oven is an investment in time and capital. Proceed as such.

G'day Stonecutter
Would not expect you to compromise your position, your a professional oven builder , and an asset to the forum .
I'm a mugg builder who will never forget the encouragement I got from the original plans .... It basically said.
If you have the choice between medium duty firebrick light duty firebrick or red commons .....build the oven anyway.

Funny, the original poster, has no idea that everyone jumped on the thread like this.

Not being a pro and spending 3 hard months on my build, I have dreamt about it many times. I still think one of my bricks in my arch will fall down and know specifically where the weak points are. Or should I say, the places where I wish that I spent more time crafting properly.

I wish I would have created a larger flu entry.... as an example
I am very glad that I used the right materials and feel strongly that if something went wrong I could easily fix it. Perhaps with steel if I had to.

For the OP - I still think it comes down to - How done is done?

If it is done done - too late, cook ya butt off till it falls.
If it is mid build, go do it right...

That my 2 cents - from a novice.

Here is my 5 dollars worth, build the thing the best you can. Use what you are suppose to use, if you expect to get any amount of life from the build. People I work with, always say, you can only build it as good as the materials allow. I agree to a certain point in regards to that statement. My thoughts are simple, why put all the time and effort into something that costs you a lot of time and money if you are going to do it half assed,oppps. Did I say that!!!! This site has pro,s and builders who have never touched a trowel in their lifetime. The smart ones will grab the info provided from the site itself along with the knowledge from the pro,s and run with it. If you are going to cut corners or use sub standard materials so be it. It is a lot of work to build an oven, why not do it right from the start. Wayne
