Question. Are there different types of perlite? (i.e. agricultural, masonry, silicon covered)

hey Tony,
Stick with the agricultural grade perlite. The silicone covered does not mix well with portland (the portland won't bond with it). Masonry perlite insulation may or may not be covered with silicone, (depends on the manufacturer). Be sure to read the bag before buying.

I used the masonry perlite and had no problems with bonding. Tony hows the build going? I just completed the second course and the front dome arch.

Hey larry!

Glad to hear from you.

I've been away for the past month so I'm really behind. I was at my uncles house in Italy. He has a forno and we made so many delicious pizzas. It got me sooooo motivated to get this oven completed.

I just poured the hearth on Tuesday and looking to do the insulation layer this weekend (Hurr. BIll permitting). You're coming along very well. I wish I was at your stage. You can almost see the end of the tunnel (Dome).

I'm going to look for your pic's.

By the way what angle did you end up cutting your soldiers?

I finally ended up cutting them at 24 Deg. Italy wow! We have been hoping to get back there for the past 25 years. I hope that you will be posting some pictures of your zio's forno.

Here are some pictures of my Zio's forno in Italy. A photo of my wife prepping the pizza. I always blink when having photos taken so my aunt is holding my eyes open.

Wow, How long is that peel Tony ? It certainly looks long enough to keep the arm hairs intact.
