    Default Fire Bricks

    Where can I get Fire Bricks (Refractory Bricks/Silica Bricks) in Gauteng? Rustenburg/Brits would also be fine. I need +-20.

    What can I expect to pay per brick?


    It is for my Forge I want to build.

    Just a suggestion. Won't refcast cement be a better option? I don't know what your forge will look like but with the cement you can fill all nooks and crannies and free form. FWIW

    You can try Vesuvius Refractories

    or

    Insimbi Alloy Supply

    Not sure if they would sell to the Cash and Carry market, but worth a shot.

    Can't stand the heat over time from temps a forge will reach - especially if you use it regularly.

    EDIT - for some reason I read PRECAST cement. Yes refcast should work, there are recipes online for DIY.

    I prefer using the bricks. It will be easy to rearrange them if I want to change the design or go smaller/bigger.

    The cement will be permanent once it is cast.

    Brick & Tile in Centurion near Chamberlain stock the bricks. Can't remember pricing but for 20 it won't break the bank. They also have cement.
