I think you have a duralite 70 firbrick manufactured by Chicago Firebrick - no longer in business. This is a 70 % alumina brick that is around 160 pcf. THese brick will take a long time to heat up, and a long time to cool down

Nothing beats free. These are high-duty expensive bricks, and I wouldn't advise anyone to go out and buy them, but they will work fine. They are just a little harder to cut than the ones from the brickyard.

Good luck with your project - keep us posted.

thanks for the speedy replies. i have completed the hearth slab and hope to start on the brick hearth next month. i bought new low duty firebrick for the hearth and i think i will use the D 70 for the rest of the oven. thanks again for your help.
