    firebrick crack

    Does this crack in the firebrick in the lid of my kiln need some kind of attention? I've been told both yes and no. It's a Shimpo DUA-15 kiln. Bob
  2. Howdy 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
  3. I love being a DIY'er and looking for a firebrick recipe that could compare to K-26 IFB, so I can fire to cone 10 in it. None of the local brick companies sell IFB so this seems like a way to go. Im not really interested in feedback whether I should or not. Just a recipe will do, preferably from someone who has made and fired the brick and experience with the results. Thanks,

    Gallup Brick?

    Anyone one have tips/knowledge about Gallup brick? Any insight on temperature rating would be appreciated!
  5. Hi there, I recently bought my very first kiln. It's VERY old, I think from the 60's or 70's. I was assuming it would have cracks in it, but I am a little concerned about the condition of the firebrick on the top. It's so crumbled it's almost falling into the kiln. I've seen a few websites that say the cracks don't matter unless the elements are sagging because of it, but I just find it hard to believe that with it this damaged they can still insulate (especially at the top). I've attached a picture of it. Can anyone tell me if I need to repair these bricks or not? Or does it just not matter if I can still get to temperature alright? Thanks in advance, Sigourney
