  • 2nd hand oven - opinions?

    Hello all,

    My first post here! I live in Australia and am yet to own a WFO oven but it's top of my to do list for Feb.
    I've been looking at what WFO pizza oven to get. Obviously they are all somewhat expensive but I stumbled across this find which is close enough for me to pickup:

    Wood Fire Pizza Oven in Moreton, QLD | eBay

    Since I have never built one before I am after some opinions on whether this would be suitable. Given the price that I could possibly get it for, it could be quite a steal.
    It appears to come with the cast dome and base bricks. I realise I need to build a brick structure to mount it on and then would also need to insulate the dome.
    He says there are some cracks but I am guessing that is easily fixed with some high temperature mortar that is used for WFO ovens.
    Do WFO ovens have a life spawn as such?

    Thanks for looking and appreciate any comments and opinions on what people would pay for it.
