Strike Posted September 23, 2018 Share Posted September 23, 2018 So I built a JABOD today with northern virginia red clay, moisture within tolerances according to the squish test by frosty or someone big. Nobody ever tells you how heavy these things are. I am poor and unemployed so THE BROOMSTICK IS JUST A PLACEHOLDER FOR NOW for a piece of steel pipe and blower. I intend to use a firebrick to hold up the final pipe. I was going to light a little fire in it to dry but it started to rain. So in the box were a couple of stones and of which I cannot tell you they are made. No idea if they are gonna blow up in my face literally so I was considering a blast shield or facemask, but that was just a thought...love a response. Question: As the clay dries in my garage, when I replace my blower pipe, do I have to prep any dry clay again in the blower tube or anywhere else. I want to add a stabilizing brick to hold the pipe and another question: do I need firebricks to bring this to a proper temperature and/or do I need to worry about igniting the wood, ( i'm sure it's autoignition temperature is high) Anyways, thanks for the help, and I know you guys love pictures but it's the best I can do and NEED yall's pro's and con's. I can't afford anything so I am gonna do pitfires and harvest the coals...I really am that broke. Frosty thanks for your tips Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
