    Why don't we all just pitch in $20 bucks and buy a ton of hard drive space for the forum to use. Then we'll have virtually unlimited storage space. Seems like the easiest option?

    It needs to be oil tight because there will be most flying around inside the wet saw cabinet. So continuous welds are needed.

    This might just be easier to get remade than use what I currently have...

    The video was helpful. I watched it a few times as well.

    I was wondering, it would be nice to also have a mig/plasma cutter to cut and join...

    I did let my refractory dry out for several weeks before firing. It was also fairly covered and in a cool dark place so it probably dried very slowly and helped prevent cracks. No light bulb used...

    It's looking great so far.

    Why do people say cracks are unavoidable? You just need a thicker wall to stop the cracks. I used a 4" thick wall and then a 2 inch thick wall in each of my two furnaces...

    Also another thing I notice is that I am...

    Haha yeah, guess I'll learn over time.

    Hopefully that solves the HF start issue too.

    Funny you should say that, I had a fan pointed upwards to cool me off.
