To cast or not to cast?
Right, a brief report is in order.
I have been acquiring increasing amounts of bricks and collating a list of UK refractories suppliers (more than I thought).
Still thinking about casting the top part of the dome. Thoughts (lose!):
Any advice, experience or suggestions, pretty please?
Re: To cast or not to cast?
Probably best to read this
and then ask ENZ since he is the only one I have seen do it. Now, I did cast my vent transition and a dome plug (approx 15" in dia and 3" thick). The material I used (KS-4) has held up great and am not worried about cracking at all, but it required a specific heat cure schedule. So you could not use it unless you cast pieces small enough to fit in an oven or had a friend with a very large oven/kiln.
