    Refractory Cement

    I have watched several youtube videos on making my own mini forge and I bought everything but the refractory cement locally. Nobody sells it local near me so I have to order it. Can anybody tell me how much I need and the cheapest place to order it from. I also noticed that there is different temperature ratings so what is the best one to use? TIA and a link to what to buy will be greatly appreaciated. This is the bucket Im using,,,

    The pint should be enough, I used a quart to firebrick the evaporator which is 2'x3'x3' fire box
    I suggest multiple curing fires for the cement, most brands suggest one, Before getting it up to full heat.

    Amazon sells it and if you're a Prime member, it'll ship free. If you're not a member, sign up for one month trial, and it'll still ship for free. Good Luck...

    I would recommend using K-Wool. If there is a Chimney installer where you live you can buy it from them, but it can be a little expensive but it should last longer.

    Thanks a lot man. Will one of these cans be enough? Do you mix it with sand like cement or mix it all by itself?
