Looks good. Those IFB are interesting. I haven't seen them before.

Maybe you had planned this, but if not, you should chamfer the back of your arch bricks to meet your dome. It makes the transition to tie the two together much easier .

Here is my take on insulators, they weigh about .5 of a kilogram if that and are full of holes.
To find out yours dont perform properly after the build is way to late.

Yes, those look like an extruded wire cut product. They may have some insulating aggregate if they are light weight, but they are not made like normal insulation firebrick which rely on a chemical reaction in a mold and are then sawn into shape.

Hi all

My two bobs worth. I went to Firebrock and refractory in Melbourne. They had some cheap insulators. They were pink in color. Mark explained they were made from diatomaceous earth. So rickaroonie is it possible your IFB are similar product.?

I didn't get them, as calsil was the way I wanted to go, but what you have purchased looks a almost exact match.

I researched it and believe if they are they will do the job. The ones I saw were left over from a major furnace build.

Am Guessing If Alright For That Purpose Should Be Ok For Wfo Assuming This Is The Case.

Hello everyone,

Been too busy to get back to anyone so sorry about that. Even no time for the progress of oven. I've had the last 2.5 days and leaving for Melbourne in the morning so cant get back to oven for at least a couple of weeks.

I've added some photos of the last bit of progress.

Geez your yard looks great, we're just starting to get a bit of rain after a long hot summer here in SW Vic!

Your oven is coming along nicely, very good work!

Nice arch, good to see it worked out prior on the template too.

Your arch looks very good, nicely thought out, it will pay major dividends as you build your dome.

Thanks for that guys. I think the arch will of been the hardest part of the build. I'm not that good with compound angles. I dont think you can tell by the photos but the back of the arch needs a bit of grinding, though i'm pretty pleased with the outcome.
I'm not looking forward to the top bit of oven where the bricks want to fall in. Haven't yet decided how I'm going to tackle that one. And not to worried about the flue arch now as I've had some experience with the first arch. Just wish I had more time for the build. That's life I suppose.
Hopefully back into it after next week.
Thanks again for all the compliments.

Rickaroonie
