Default Never Say No To Free Brick

Picked up about 200 of these tapered regular red bricks...I think I will use them for some arches when I build the permanent oven.Any way they were free and free is good on my book.I had not seen tapered red bricks before,so I will try and be creative with them...I wish they had been fire bricks but beggars can't be choosy.

Thumbs up Re: Never Say No To Free Brick

castiron,
they look fine for cutting and building your dome.
And you have enough to build a 40" Pompeii to boot, especially as they look look they are fired clay bricks.
I personally would build one with them.
Check out Russell Jeavon's book as his ovens are built with them without problems!

I have a refactory close to where I live and aquired about 400 of those firebrick. Mine are a spotted yellowish and new. I got to know the forman of the yard and he has set me up with tons of brick in various shapes. (All the brick are not sold or used anymore) I built my pompei with the arched brick, cut into 3 equal pieces. It worked great. I didn't have to use any mortar for the first few rows because they were a good tapered fit.

Unhappy Re: Never Say No To Free Brick

Joe I had to use my wifes log in , having trouble with mine again. I got the brick at a local refactory about 25 miles from where I live. I have found out that it seems to work fine for the walls and dome but not for the floor, It can't take the thermal shock or I am not firing my oven right. I also got some large flat pieces about 20x22 and used this for the floor and everywhere I moved the fire itcracked the floor big time. I am now trying some fire place brick to go over these pieces.
