Hmmm, true Neil, but one advantage of an e-book is that it can reasonably refer readers to websites outside its scope. If someone can track down a good glossary or similar the link can be included even if the text cannot.

I hope that cements the issue - although it's certainly not set in concrete!

Just a note to say that it is impossible to download the e-book with a UK address as there is no option for shipping to the UK.

Hi, I'm new to forum so maybe someone can clarify - page 13 shows oven foundation size (73 x 86 " ) and block stand dimension ( 65 x 78" ) for 42 " oven. Now go to page 66 and it says 80 x 94" for foundation and 72 x 84" for block stand - which is it? Directions mention putting in thermocouple but do you place them under floor tiles or between cracks in floor tile? Also do you use grinder to make arc in floor tiles for circle shape. thanks , Larry

Put Thermocouples where ever you want to measure your temps. I drilled into hearth bricks and put thermocouples in a center brick and then one to each side. I drilled into the brick about and inch and a half, so the thermocouple would be measuring the hearth surface temp. Then I added one under the hearth bricks and compare that to the embedded thermocouple to get the heat stauration of the hearth bricks. Did the same for dome bricks and added one above dome insulation (checks how good I have insulated) and one under the hearth insulation. (same reasoning, I used 4"foamglas under hearth) I have used the oven quite a bit and I will no doubt not need or use all the measurements. So I didn't add spares in case of malfunctions, which plaugue thermocouples in general.
Hope this helps
John

On the page where you describe chimney height you say " for a good rule of thumb the flue area should be 3 to 4 times the entry height' ( I may have the quote wrong but it is close.) I don't get it is I have an entry arch height of 12 inches the area of the flue should be 36 to 48 square inches? so 6x6 to 7x7? Is this at the top? [B]ut how high up is the top? or did you mean height instead of area? So the height is 36 to 48"? but then how much area? I think this should be explained better.

I also found it difficult to keep tight brick to brick edges on the inner dome surface as the course s got heigher. Especially if you try to stager each brick over the seam of the next lowre course.. The bottom of each brick needs to be a V while the sides need to be angelled inward to make a "trapazoid". so it come sout to be a pentagon with three different lengths for the 5 sides. Is there a description or discussion of this problem other than the geodesic dome description which is way to much for me. I don't mind the large mortar fills on the outside but I would like no morter showing on the inside.

the height of the chimney should be 3-4 times the entry which means in your case 3-4 feet height. Ciao Carlo

...here in Australia....(the best country in the world)... we went metric in the seventies, blokes like me took awhile to adjust, having learned all imperial then having to change to metric took some adjusting. I was working with a bloke considerably my senior, when we had reason to measure something to do with the job, I said "You call out the figures and I'll write them down!"
"One metre...(thats's how we spell it here)...and two and a half inches! he replied.......I give up! ....
