Flipped the lid today and filled in the gaps on the other side. Managed to add an extra cm to the width from being unable to push the bricks together enough. Hopefully all the joins will be ok.

Flipped it back over after a few hours and a bit of heat gun to start cutting. Got 3/4 of the way round with a jigsaw until the blade was very blunt. Have to go and buy another 2 at least to get the cut finished. Hardest part is going to be getting the circles to line up on each side.

 

Dust masks all round.

Starting to feel better and better about this lid. I was very sceptical at first but now I am only a little worried.

Looks good, there was a spray-on product in the video above that was suppose to increase durability, are you going to prep it with some of that too?

Thank you John.

 

Yes I would like to get some sort of protective coating but I don't know what to use and have little money left. Not sure what they used in the video and I don't have their custom built curing box :(

 

Probably have to wait till next month when I get some more money.

Hey, Paragon, and the other kiln/equipment companies too, have all the info you'll need, in most cases. It looks like they sell the kiln brick wash for lids on the paragon site. They also have a "pointers" section for the application.

I'm sure the curing kiln is to handle their volume of production in a timely fashion.
