The arched roof and the door of our front loading electric needs replacing. I can get some good quality unused K26 bricks cheap but am wondering what the downside of using those would be since the rest of the kiln is made from K23’s.
I was thinking that cutting the element channels for the door bricks would be less crumbly? Also, we would have to cut the bevels in the arch bricks, can set the table saw up outside to do this plus the router table for the channels. So do we save a few hundred on the K26 or keep the bricks all the same? I get that the weight and mass of the K26 is more but anything else to consider?
