We got our firebrick from Mutual Materials in Hillsboro. I think they have stores sprinkled around Portland. We bought RefMix from Forno Bravo, so we can't help you with any local leads on the mortar.

Hi Ken,

How did you insulate your oven?

Did you find a local source for board and batt masonry insulation?

Or did you use vermiculite / perlite?

Thanks

JED

Hi Jed,

Under the floor we have 5 inches of perlcrete. I planned on 4 but made an error (in the better direction for once!). Over the dome we have 3 inches of ceramic wool blanket from Forno Bravo. We also walled-around our dome and we filled the entire resulting void between the dome and the walls with perlcrete. All of our perlcrete was mixed 1 part portland to 6 parts perlite. We capped the top of the structure with 2 inches of acrylic fortified concrete before putting a wooden roof over that.

Ken - thanks.
I did get some bricks from Willamette Graystone. I was convienient for me but more expensive than Mutal materials ( $1.50 compared to $1.40 at Mutual).
Mutual had 'firestop' premixed buckets of refrectory mortar - no dry mix - any comments ?

have you found the mortar supplier yet? I just bought firebrick from Mutual Materials as they are very close to my house in Clark County. haven't found mortar or the insulating materials yet so any info in that regard would be helpful.

i have cut my floor bricks and first three rows of the oven as well. They are all dry fit currently but that is as far as I have gotten.

Hey folks,

Very interested in any outlets for oven or pizza related stuff in the area. i am just starting a 36" Pompeii. Bought the bricks from Mutual Material but that is all I have so far, other than the HF tile saw of course.

We just picked up a small bit of Caputo's flour in Hawthorne, but that was just to try the stuff out.

have not yet found mortar other than premix buckets at MM, but there is no way that will work, it is too expensive.

I figure to buy the insulating tiles from FB and the ceramic blanket material as well, unless someone has found a local source.

Anyone using their oven yet?

Any info would be greatly appreciated,

Jim

Mortar: I used one bucket of 'heatstop' then went to home mix recipe i found on this sire. I obtained fireclay from 'Georgies' a great pottery place on Columbia Blvd. in Portland. (503.283.1353)

Insulation: So far I'm using perlite obtained from Home Depot. I still thinking about the use of blankets

I built an oven in the fall and got all of my materials from a place in Clackamas called "Harbison Walker"
They deal mostly in industrial materials, but they have castables and mortor.
