I really like those big refractory arches. It would save folks a lot of trouble if we had access to those. As for rectangular, high mass ovens, they have their place for commercial bread baking, but most of us here are round oven fans.

Thanks for your reply.

My son and I saw the arches as we were collecting our firebrik from pallets and pallets of new usused brick at a torn down steel mill. We say 4 and I said to him we had better grab them. The bricks were listed for $1.00 each and .75 for the small ones, arches $4.00. But I traded honey so all my brick cost us gas money to pick them up.

I will eventually let you know how it turns out.

The theme of a round on a trailer is interesting, mabey a future project.

Derk,

Any more of those arches available? That would speed up production of my oven considerably, though I've already purchased the kit.

Greg,

Are'nt you in Utah county?

If you are look in the KSL classified ads online for firebrick. It will be an old ad. There is a number there for the people developing the Geneva steel site. I did not see any other arches, they were bulldozed into a pile when I discovered them, but they did have MANY other sizes and shaped that you might be able to use. I am in Bountiful or I would go and take a look. the firebrick is on many pallets on the old geneva site, if you go be sure to take your tape measure, some look rectangle but are tapered.
