i am building an alan scott oven and was wondering if i should use the fireclay mortar mix (10 - 3 - 1-1/2) or just type s mortar for building the chimney. any ideas on which would be the better choice?
I'd stick with the fireclay mix as the Portland cannot withstand the higher temperatures.
I know that it's a chimney that you are referring to, but they still get pretty hot.
Go the safe way rather than inviting problems to your build.
If you don't succeed the first time, try again and again until you get it right!
