INFARED TEMP GUN - The big "A" company has these on sale for $13.88 free ship with "A" Prime after using this code 85006OFF. Range is from 50 - 932F or 50-500C. I picked up a back up. Expiring soon maybe today.

Don't try to fool us! Chilling and relaxing? Bet you'll be tinkering before long with something! Got all your tools made? How about a place to neatly display and store them? And that detail for covering the stainless chimney....but that is a ball of worms (once you start covering, where does it end? storm flashing...and how do you keep it all in proportion to the beauty you have now?) If you are at all like the rest of us tinkers...mind never rests even while sleeping!

Have a great party and best wishes to your wife on her birthday!

Russell,

Would you be so kind as to publish the specific specs/product of foamglas you used under your oven? It seems like they have several different types and it may help to narrow it down quickly. Also, did you work through a distributor that has on-line presence? I haven't found a local one...yet. Thanks for your assistance! Carl

Felix,

Here's a PDF. I ordered my FoamGlas from EJ Bartells local but I think they have offices throughout the western US and ship as well. ANH probably carries it as well.

Thanks Russell,

Did you get your Cal Sil board through EJ Bartells also?

Russell,

I appreciate your willingness to revisit the past -- concerning your build... I know your thread spurred on quite a discussion about the stability of the outer arches and if that section (entry/smoke chamber) should be built on CalSil board or Insulated Fire Brick or directly on the concrete. I can't tell for sure from the pictures, but it appears you ended up building directly up from the concrete hearth. Is that correct? Would you be willing to elaborate on why you did what you did? Would you do it another way now that you have been through it? Thanks for your thoughts. Carl

Sorry for the delay. I am out of the US right now. But quick answer everything sits on the foamglas/ca si board except a small 1" firebrick veneer on the front and side of the vent area.
