Strong ?  Maybe, but brittle for sure.  If you look at them wrong they will crack.  Tapcons maybe, but an overtightened thru bolt will crush and crack the firebrick.

Just my $.02 :)

I was going to use masonry/concrete screws (tapcons). I expect anchors are overkill. Another alternative is fibrous rawlplugs.

buceriasdon, ah, but none of them have any pizzas in them!

Here's a pic of a kiln with a pizza in it:

Just for clarity my post was from experience drilling and anchoring with firebrick.  I'm posting from my phone do I tend to be short and light on details.

superspost, I have all the parts. Unfortunately, I don't yet have the time to put them together. My other half tells me I have to build her a barn first.  :'(

Hi Everybody!

Last Month I rebuilt an electric pizza oven to: 41.5 cm x 44cm x 9cm, 2 x 300C thermostats and 2 x 1000w elements. It is working fine, baking each pre-heated pizza 35cm in 3 minutes. I want to go ahead!
I want to reinstall the thermostats and resistances, thus: 2 x 500C thermostats and 2 x 1500w Elements or 2 x 450C Thermostats and 1 x 1000w + 1 1600w Elements. I can also reduce the area of the cooking chamber for up to 38cm x 38cm x 9cm. What are the opinions of my friends?

Here's a pic of the barn.

Another job (of putting up solar panels) has yet again postponed the pizza oven project. I could take a photo of the kiln bricks, but it wouldn't be very exciting.

If the photo of barn doesn't appear as an attachment, here's a URL
