Adam Ting posted a topic in Equipment Use and RepairHowdy Y'all I have the opportunity to potentially build a wood fired kiln here in Colorado. The space is figured out and there are kiln shelves to be used. Now all I need to do is figure out to where to get firebrick for free or very cheap and design a kiln! easy peasy..... I was wondering if anyone could point me towards good places to search for used firebrick. I know firebrick is used in many industrial applications to line furnaces etc but I am unsure exactly what type of businesses would use these. Does anyone have experience sourcing free firebrick? My second question is if anyone is familiar with any good computer software that can be used to design kilns? Mainly I would like it to just play around with simple designs so it doesn't need to be terribly complex. If anyone knows of a program like this I would love to hear about it! Thanks! -Adam
I have been reading a bit about making my own IFB to start building my own little kilns. I know it is probably not cost effective but I just want to do it anyway for my own enjoyment. I was working last night in some 3D software with a 9/4.5/3 brick shape trying to work out how to layout bricks and how many I will need. I then realised that I know nothing about brick laying There must be a good way to stack bricks and build up a wall. Anybody got some links to kiln building / brick laying? Going to go to the library tomorrow to see if I can't find a good book on kiln building but thought I would ask here. Any information is good even if it is only slightly related. " I want it all "
