Soldiers again! Do a search on using soldiers for the first course. Structurally unsound IMO.

This is the first I've heard of that and I've posted my build for about 2 weeks now. That's upsetting.

K79, I understand how soldiers might be less sound, I built my oven several years ago and have soldiers and have no problems. No cracking in this area and when I built it was a question of preference. If you use soldiers you'll have a bit more room at the edge of the floor. IMO as long as you build with care your oven will be fine with soldiers.

I do not see any difference between 2 courses of vertically stacked stretchers and a solider course as as it relates to outward thrust imparted by the dome. Parge the exterior when you are done and it should be GTG.

A sailor course is different though, it has to be reinforced or buttressed.

What did you guys use for your High Heat Mortar? I can get my hands on Quick Bond 3000 by Allied Mineral. Also a local store has Heat Stop 50? Anyone work with these? Also has anyone here used Supervent for their chimney and accessories?

The home brew 3/1/1/1 sand/hydrated lime/Portland cement/fire clay worked great for me and was much cheaper.

I used homebrew like Mr. Chip and ditto on comments. Supervent is a rename of a Selkirt Ultra Temp double wall SS vent. I used it for my chimney. It is comparable to Duravent.

Heatstop is a very good product, I am not familiar with the other. Parging is applying a thin coat of material to the exterior of the oven.

The Heatstop recommends joints of 1/8" or less. The rep. that sold it to my local construction outfit said to keep the joints under 3/8". He also said that anything over the 1/8" will probably crack. Seems like all the same info that I've read here. Just makes me nervous because we all know the joints will be over 1/8".
