Ok guys I'm the dummy didn't mean to offend you all keep posting..... I need the help......... No one responded to the last post of mine.

Haven’t' had any time to work on the oven the last few weeks....... Spent some family time fishing with the family..... then with the forced outage at work..... seven twelve's finally over…………. I had time to cut out that lintel today... Now maybe I’ll make some progress

I assume you mean depth? you want it to project maybe an inch beyond your dome at the bottom. At the top it will probably be 3-4 inches.

Once you set where you want the face of the arch to be, that dictates the depth if you are building it the way Russel, John, Amac, myself and others did.

Yes I did mean depth.... So if I started at 1" beyond dome wall at the bottom....I should be less the 1 full brick 9" at the top with a 4.5" dome wall......I was concerned it would be more than 1 brick at the top.....Looking at your picture it looks like it should be less than 1 brick, although yours looks like your dome has a few courses of level bricks before your began your dome. Looks like I may need to play a little more with my IT to confirm if I start the dome after the first course…… Thanks for your input…… like they say a your picture is worth a thousand words .

Thanks "D" ....Question: 10” brick saw blade how long did your last? I seem to have lost about a ½ “of the saw blade already, and it is flexing when starting at the edge of the brick. I’ve been helping the blade to stay true at the beginning of the cut by holding a scrap wedge against the blade to stop the flexing. It seems to be getting worse.

I think I went through 3 blades for my build. First one lasted maybe 4 or 5 courses? Last one I used for the veneer and all the clinker brick trim and it still has a little life in it.

But, it depends on your brick. I think mine might be light duty which is easier on blades.

You are pushing too hard or not using enough water. The blade should not flex, and it should only have 3/8" to 1/2" of segments to start. A good 10" diamond blade will cost a hundred bucks or more, and one designed to cut firebrick will make thousands of cuts.

I should note I used the HF blades, which only cost about $25 after discounts. I might have used one blade if I hadn't had to recut so many things...

The blade is bent and will wobble for ever.

Good blades cost good money, when you buy a blade make sure that you can see the diamond particles in the matrix otherwise you are wasting your money.

A processional brick cutter I used to use when I was bricklaying used to spend $600 per 16" blade, you can buy the same sized blade for $50 but its a throw away job.
