They are called "loose angles" and that is what they need to be: loose. You have to leave room for the differential expansion of the angle iron and the brick. Not much, 1/4" on either side is fine, and the angle iron itself is not mortared to anything, it provides vertical support only.

Ok cool, so i did some research on loose angles and that makes perfect sense.

Only question i have is, do i build the bricks up in a stretcher style format, i.e. using all of the lintel, or do I just build it up staggering it in and having a gap..

I drew a crude picture and scanned it (attached). this is the view from the back of the arch...i hope it makes sense. Option 1 is the stretcher style, and 2 is the gap...

sorry for being such a newbie...

when you say across, do you mean not like either of the diagrams i drew?

or across as in each brick lengthways along the angle, and then a length across the throat of the oven, and then join up the throat and angle bricks...?

The chimney will be either a square or rectangle, with one side sitting on the angle. Nothing special, the brick lay on top of the angle like they would another course of brick.

When you get to that point of your build it'll all come together.
