    Alsey Refractories, in St. Louis, MO has a 2700F castable refractory.

    They have distributors in North Dakota. Both the Grand Forks and Fargo Hebron Brick Company(http://www.mybrickstore.com/) stock it, I am not sure if their other locations do as well. It is around 33$ per bag for a 55lb bag(not sure on cubic footage). I will try to get an impression on what it is like and put something more about it up here once I get started on my next furnace.

    Found a place in Memphis,TN that sells by the bag or more of castables.
    I got a bag of Mizzou 3000 (AP Green/HWalker) for $48+tax.

    They don't have a website, but real friendly. Said they have Crucibles and more, but I didn't price check.

    I got my castable from http://www.fibrecast.com, good friendly service, reasonable prices about $35.00 Cdn for a bag of Plicast LWI. The downside of this place, $100 minimum order and I picked up at their location so don't know how they are for shipping.

    Plicast Products (and much more) are available in Central NJ at

    I got Plicast Steel Mix (2700F dense castable), as recommended by them for a small bronze foundry, for $25.04 per 50 lb bag, picked up.

    Nice friendly people, easy to work with, and no concerns about small orders.

    I used "request a sample" in the upper right hand corner for some Bentone for making Kbond molding sand, and they forwarded my request to a local distributor who has been looking into getting me a sample of Bentone 34 powder for a week or more now...the weird thing is I got a 50# package of Bentone the other day shipped UPS, but the distributor said he knows nothing about it :shock: so that means that elementis sent it on their own. I accidentally requested Bentone MA rather than Bentone 34, so thats what they shipped me, but I mixed up some refractory and it acted waaaay more claylike than the cement and sand slop I was trying to get away with, so Im not looking a gifthorse in the mouth.

    Anyone local to cincinnati, the distributor is http://www.gmzinc.com and their product lines for Cincinnati are: http://www.gmzinc.com/uploads/File/M...ine%20Card.pdf

    looks like they have many other locations...

    Anyway, I never gave anyone any credit card or anything, so Im guessing it was free??? The bentone 34 is specifically mentioned in the receipe for Kbond

    They might have other stuff like silicates and whatnot, but I havent gone through the rest of their stuff to look.

    Anon, have you ever checked into this place? One of our salesmen said they have skids of brick right now, some IFB. I realize your back at school, I may make a run if I get a chance. He's checking on a contact to see if they will sell retail.

    Yep, there's one in Indy too, quite close to my house. That's where I got the dense castable for my big furnace. They didn't look like they did much retail, but the guy there was perfectly happy to give me some ratty bags of castable.
    The process of turning stumbling blocks into stepping stones can at times require the use of a large sledgehammer.

    Oops, I hit the wrong link, I meant the one in Indy on Michigan Rd. That's about a mile from a printing friend of mine, on Michigan.
