Default Firebricks/storage heater bricks - UK Hampshire

Hi

I am towards the end of building my oven mk2. I was planning to use entirely old storage heater bricks, but ran out with 3 courses of the dome to go...

My Brother has been sourcing the storage heater bricks...

So I had to bite the bullet and bought some fire bricks from local merchants for about £2.50 each...

Soon the storage heater bricks I was going to use should turn up. Not sure exactly when or how many yet - or quite what size... But last time I had about 30, 22x19x5 cm - about 4kg each.

Anyone interested?

Obviously won't be posting them. I would only be looking to recoup my costs on the firebricks I had to buy...

James

Storage heaters usually have two controls - a charge control (often called "input"), which controls the amount of heat stored, and the draught control (often called "output"), which controls the rate at which heat is released. These controls may be set by the user, or in some models are automatic and allow you to set the target room temperature using a thermostat.

Heya,

I am also using storage heater bricks for the oven floor. I'm a bit concerned though as to the content of the bricks and if they are safe for cooking with !
I'm hoping so as I got my whole oven floor for about £10!

Anyone know anything about them? I think they are made of ferrio-oxide

I don't have any spare bricks left (other than a few off cuts that anyone is welcome to). My brother is a plumber and sometimes comes across old storage heaters when they renovate old places. I'll post again if he gets any more.
