Real nice looking job on the stove, hard to remember from my brick lining days but there are only about three fire brick Co.s left in the U.S. & I think A.P. Green just took over another one. They do make some excellent cements & there is also a softer brick that is real easy to cut.

If you have a fully intact brick, couldn't you take one to a mason and copy the shape using a new brick? Just a thought. Looking good though.

These bricks are curved, with a groove and a notch, I don't think it would be possible to carve a standard firebrick into their shape. There seems to be 8 bricks that took the brunt of the fires, and the top circle of bricks is in better shape. I was wondering if there might be generic 16" curved firebrick but no luck so far. Almost ready to put it together, put a better spray finish on it today. It's wet in the pic, the Rustoleum seems to dry pretty flat despite being called satin.

Did you try any of these places for fire bricks.

If the bricks are all the same you could make a mould and cast your own...

I was given a kenmore stove that looks almost like the stove Dann has in this post.It's a model#102-100330 and needs a complete teardown from sitting out in a pole barn for 25 years. The grates are prefect and all the bricks also,rusty brown porclean skin.The fire box is 17" wide and 14" deep. There are no gaskets just steel on steel and all the seams need sealed.I will add pics. later.

Dann did you ever use your kenmore and how did it preform and how much heat did it put out
