Francis, maybe some more expert steelworkers could advise.

To me it depends on how stiff the steel is. Does it bend at all? It looks pretty substantial. Yes, to me you can torch it hot and it will bend easier, with hammer and anvil.

To people in the business, I'm sure it would be easy!

Great door Frances!!

Did I read correctly, you filled it with vermiculite?

I was going to do that to mine, but it is a tad too big. So I didn't have much luck with metal measurements either. (Especially after bending)
But I'm going to rebuild it soon.

Let me know how well it insulates!

Thanks a bunch.

Dave

Good point. We will send you the Tshirt, AND I will change the titles.

Any recommendations?
James

Frances............I never really thought this through. It was just a random thought that popped into my head.

Clearly not enough in there to occupy the space........

That's the way these ovens get to you.

They are lightweight and can be cut with a handsaw. I can post some photos if you are interested. I think Carl from England used them for insulation under his hearth. I also seem to remember that he did some heat tests on them. I'll see if I can find the thread.

Hello again,

couple of years ago I built a large shed (56 sq m) from AAC blocks. In our region they come 200 mm wide. Laid up fairly quickly on special mortar but VERY fragile given the right WRONG conditions - see my album the shed at Picasa Web Albums - carioca...

I would NOT use them for insulation near a WFO - there exist special lightweight heat-proof insulation blocks for that purpose.

Cheers,

LMH
