    Re: Zeke's 40" in Modesto

    Zeke,

    Another tip: once you are done cutting your firebricks for the day, do not throw away the wet firebrick powder clay at the bottom of the wet saw basket. Just dump most of the water out and let the firebrick powder clay dry overnight. You can then use this firebrick powder clay in your homebrew mix for the next firebrick course.

    Might as well use this clay as it will have the same refractory properties as the firebrick you are installing. I personally used 3 sand, 1 portland, 1 lime, 0.5 bag fireclay and 0.5 leftover firebrick clay, by volume. It worked great, and I didn't waste firebrick clay after a day's cuttings.

      Good tip Aceves - I'll give it a try. I already have quite a bit of sediment in the bucket after draining the pan a couple of times.
