Even if you do run into the tear drop its okay. The oven will still function just fine. If you run into the drop all you have to do is add a key stone to avoid it, then start a new chain of bricks it will solve the problem. Ask me how i know.

Here is what the back of my arch looks like. I need to (obviously) bring my ring around here in the back. Confusing....??..??

Any suggestions?

I feel like I'm just crossing my fingers here at this point ... very unsettling... I don't like it

K79,

It does look like you are at a point where you can do a taper arch using a full brick. Just a consideration, the time spent doing this will pay off dividends in the arch to dome tie-in. Take a look at the link I sent you.

Are you talking about the link in your tag? I don't see one anywhere else. Thanks UtahBeehiver !! I can't wait to see this option. If your referring to your oven I'm having a hard time picturing how mine would come together like that. I love it, and I'd love to be able to do something like that.

I just went back to post 248 on your thread and the links works on this end. Go to GianniFocaccia's OctoForno thread post #73 if you can't get the link to work. It show a tapered arch off of vertical inner arch walls, just like yours.

Ok I got it. So if I understand this correctly in post #215 of my thread it shows my IT. Its the Hendo Guage. Am I correct in saying that the angle of my hendo would be the correct upper and lower angle of my arch brick?

I'm trying to figure this out on my PC. Below is a picture of my work. If I cut the purple brick as shown (that would be my keystone) you can see the yellowish/white brick (the ring brick that would intersect it) would fit nicely over the top (I'ld have to shave off about 1/4"). If I follow that angle around the arch with my Hendo that should work right? I'm worried that I'll have my ring bricks up in the air over the top of my march and have nothing to rest on? The top of my arch brick would only be 1" across... is that ok?

K,

Here are couple pics. The first is the general shape of the tapered brick, they will vary slightly as the bricks move off the center of the arch. The second shows the pencil on the IT at the outer side of the dome and the inner side would be what ever thickness your dome wall is, assuming 1/2 brick or 4.5". The angle of between these two points is the same angle as the rod on the IT, I know mine show more but I move the pencil up to show clarity when I took the pic. The bottom angle of the brick on pic one is the internal arc of the dome set by the IT. Hope this makes sense.

Are you basing these calcs of 1/2 bricks for your inner tapered arch? Your will need more depth then a 1/2 brick gives you, probably full bricks as a base line. I think mine ended up being about 7.5 inches deep but it also varies again based on where the brick sits in the arch. The worst case scenario will the the top dead center.
