Cool Re: My 40" Inch pizza oven in Florida

Finalized 6th course today......……….. I now have more respect to those whom have trodden before……… My hat is off to them…….. It not as easy as it looks ……………….. The upper courses I’m sure will prove even more difficult.
Having to work on both side of the wall is giving me a work out. My laziness has cost me a few mistake by not walking all the way around to have a look.

Looks great to me. I'm getting stuck trying to set jig for first course with a vertical tilt. About to post about this on my thread. Appreciate any help. Bruce

Hey Kbartman it doesn't appear that you have needed any sort of form yet for laying your rings. What are you plans when you approach the top of your dome?

Thanks all for the compliments

K79,
My goal is to not use any form, only the IT......... Although the last course was a bit challenging to do the dry fit. The next course will lie on a 30 degree angle, which may make dry fitting impossible. Dry fitting has attributed to my success thus far. The Premix mortar I’ve been using is pretty sticking so laying the course has been no problem. I try to lay and mortar the whole course at one time, making overall alignment easier. The last course I laid was done over two days which caused so alignment issues.

I’m considering a ply wood ring set on brick stacks that allows the IT to be used. I can remove; clean brick face and trim the ring for next course after completing each course……………..Just thinking about it is making my head spin…………………. That being said I’m open for suggestions.

Gudday
I have seem folk use thin sticks to hold the bricks up, freeing up your IT tool to position the next brick

I tried the sticks and they kept getting knocked out of place as I was working - it gets cramped in there towards the end. Plus you need longer sticks every row.

I ended up making some hooks that hung over the brick with a weight hanging on a bit of wire on the outside of the oven. Basically just two half brick sized bits of plywood screwed together at a right angle. Drill a whole through the bottom edge for your wire and hang something weighty from it. They work on any row and don't get in your way.

Bruce,
I'm using Super Demon by Plibrico. It’s made for tight joint 1/4" max. My first tilted course had some shrinkage issues with the larger joint. Brickie suggested I go back and fill any voids after drying some time, which I will do. I have been able at this point to control shrinkage by using my brick scraps wedges to fill the tilt voids. I thought of adding sand to the mortar mix for the shrinkage issue not sure how that would work........ I need more mortar. I may switch to a different mortar on the upper courses, though I don't like the idea of having different bonding materials . So I’ll probably stay with it. I thought the price was good at $ 38 per bucket, which should put me at about $120 total for high heat mortar.
