I have a quick question for someone with more experience than I before I get too far into things. I'm laying up a block chimney for my shop and I'm trying to wade through all the information about how to do the butt joints on the clay tiles. I'm laying 8x8 square lines up through the block and know I need to put something between the tiles but I'm not sure what. I know the regular mortar probably won't hold up to the heat and when it starts to fall out it will leave too much of a gap and let the gases escape.
Could I use something like this for ease and connivencehttp://www.amazon.com/MEECOS-120-Furnac ... ace+cement
or will it not hold up as well in the long term. Good for patches but not for installation.
I also saw thishttp://www.lowes.com/pd_15879-138-35515 ... facetInfo=
which I think is something similar to what I used for some furnace repair at some time.
Any help or advice would be appreciated. I can't keep setting block until I know how to proceed with the flue. Thanks!!
