    I will certainly give that some consideration. My primary goal is to create a very light oven but at the same time I wouldn't want to build something that isn't going to last. I will do some calculations and work out the weight difference and see what I come up with. Given that I have just reduced the insulation to 50mm all round I have saved a bit of weight, not just from the insulation but being able to make the stand and outer shell smaller, so even with an increase in thickness of the castable the different might not be too dramatic.

    The terrain I will be moving the oven around on will be a combination of concrete and pavers. There are no dramatic height transitions between the different surfaces and the pavers are relatively level however I think I should definitely keep looking for larger diameter castors if I end up adding any more weight.
