Those flue tiles look really good:



I think one of the reason those crummy stainless chimney units are so popular here in the US is that our masonry chimney tiles are so bad and hard to use. They just stack up with mortar, there's not nice flanges to fit them together, they are thin and fragile, they are not particularly uniform in size or parallel at the ends. In addition they are supposed to stand free of the masonry enclosure, for no particular reason that I can understand, held only by the collar at the top.

The ones that you illustrate are clearly well fitted, self supporting, and I like that they are glazed on the inside, making them easy to clean.

I think they will be great. Good find.

Good one Dave, I love it!

"Old brick, new brick, dome brick, flue brick...,
yes, some are good and some are bad, and this brick made me very mad"

Thanks Dmun, I'm glad you think my flue bricks will work out well. If you're interested in chimneys, maybe you'd like to have a look at this page: Konstruktiver Aufbau
Its in German, but they have some very sophisticated chimney systems...

Nice, had something similar to those been available locally I would certainly have used them. For all of the reasons listed by dmun I opted for the simpson stainless steel. I would have prefered a more traditional look, but the fragile, ill-fitting U.S. flue tiles steered me to the stainless.

Can't wait to see these in place

Frances, congratulations - it looks great !
I can only sigh in envy at what it must feel like to place that last brick.

I viewed this thread last night for the first time - love your songs-to-build-by. Got some more good tips from your posts to incorporate into my oven too.

How does Swiss weather compare to mine, I wonder? I see you were worried about freezing temps - I am too but our long-range forecast still looks fairly good (unless they've lied, which has happened more than once!) I hope your weather holds long enough for you to get the final mud layer and dry-out done.
What plans do you have for winter protection?

Sarah
