So i have a Vermont Casting Vigilant II coal stove. Moving to my new house the fire brick got messed up. The place i bought the stove from is no longer open and can not seem to find anything on the VC website...any idea where I can get replacement fire brick, are they all a standard size?

Mostly standard. A couple different sizes. You can go over size and cut them several different ways. I have a wet saw for tile and easily cut the ones I just put in. I got mine through Ace hardware.

9 x 4.5 x 1 1/4 is a standard size but as Klook points out many mason supplies carry different sizes. Try your local yards or if there is a VC dealer near you. You can also repair the old brick with retort cement or even furnace cement.

Try Cranston Coal or Fuel and Flame in Woonsocket.

If you need to cut a brick, I have a wet saw that I could use to cut one for you.

Tractor supply is $3.xx per brick 9x5 I think. I looked at them this weekend.

Cuttung is simple. 4.5" angle grinder with a cheapo diamond wheel and a light hand. Be sure to wear a face shield! Harbor freight has the shields for about $4.

Use Rutland furnace cement in the tube to stick them to the furnace. They can be removed with minimal effort later.
