The next oven
« on: April 23, 2014, 10:11:33 AM »
I ordered some of these from Superior clay, just the dome, not the sides.  I will build a sailor course and drop the dome on it.  Not sure of the vent yet, but it will be simple.  I want to keep the weight including the base under 800#.  The diameter of the dome is 27" with a 2" thickness and a 7-1/2" rise.  The opening is 16-1/4" with a 4-1/2" rise.  I will cut the sailor course down to 7" for an interior height of 14-1/2" and a door opening of around 16"x11".

A tiny little oven that should heat up fast.

No, I am building one at the office as a demo (i.e. so we can have pizza for lunch) and then one for sale.

No, that is the biggest dome piece they make.  The side pieces are sloped outwards, this is the biggest dome, but is not from their biggest oven.  The larger ovens have smaller dome pieces, but larger sloped side pieces.  FYI, I do not like their ovens, even though I am the local distributor.  I have only sold 3 or 4 in 20+ years.

Cool
Looks good for a nice little home oven !
What's the price for a dome piece ?
Please post the finished product as soon as the office gets your pizza you'll be mass producing
A lot of people looking for that $1000- 27" dome  in home oven. For sure
Best!

We have the domes at around 300 bucks.  They have a 24" one with no scallop which would be good if you built 3 or 4 courses and used it for a closer.  The beauty is that other than drying time for the slab and perlcrete insulation under the floor, the oven can be built in a couple of hours.

And you eliminate those sloppy looking side pieces.  I know they specify a cladding of insulating refractory over the whole thing but, sheesh.  The dome is the only thing I liked about that kit.

Yes, the design of those side pieces is hideous, and the engineering of the large one using firebrick is poor.  This dome section is actually from the smallest oven they offer, the smaller 24 inch ones are from the larger ovens (because of the sloping wall sections).

No, I have a graduation party to get ready for so I am hesitant to start another project.  The wife would not be happy with another oven in the driveway for the party anyway, so I have to wait or build the work oven first.  The location where I wanted to build it at work is too close to a 500 gallon diesel tank, so I have to figure out where to put it that is practical and still close to the kitchen.  I work this Saturday, so I will probably pour the slab and perlcrete layer on a pallet so I can move it around.  40x48 should be plenty big for the slab.

This is cool --- so, I could get one of these & rebuild using my existing pile of firebrick, right?
