    Thanks for that. One of these days when I am going to or from Toronto I may have to make a detour.

    There's also a pottery place in Richmond Hill that carries the thermal blanket and fire bricks and shelves.
    Tucker's pottery supplies is the name I think.

    Ryan's right, Tucker's pottery supply is in Richmond Hill, Pottery supply house is in Oakville, probably the biggest is Vesuvius is a massive refractory maker in Welland, they make fire bricks, fibre frax(kaowool) etc. Smelko foundry industrial sells anything having to do with foundry work.

    That's good to know I'll check put their prices. I'm in Nova Scotia and the old Google machine has shown squat out here. The one place that does carry it never answers their phones or emails.

    I got some ceramic wool from Total Energy (http://totalenergyinc.ca/), they are just outside Kentville. They don’t sell Kaowoolbut they get ceramic wool from a supplier in Truro.

    I have been trying to contact Vesuvius for some time but can't seem to get anyone to reply.
    I use a product they made called SUPPER 3000 to line my forge and protect it from the borax,and they seem to have discontinued making it and most of their refractories.
    Are these guys still in business ?

    @Newfiebackflip how much are you looking for, I have about 17' of 1" thick 2' wide ceramic wool. Its more then I need. I bought it from Maritime stress in the woodside industrial park. I think it was 160 for a roll of 25'

    Super 3000 is a castable refractory that I use to coat the ceramic wool so borax does not eat the wool.
    Thanks for the offer.

    Hey Forge,
    I use to deal with them frequently for a job I use to do about a year ago. I'll try and get the sales reps number that I use to deal with. i use to use super 3000 as well as a mortar for fire bricks when building glass melting equipment. Give me a few days and I'll see what I can do.

    @SoberEdge Ill have to get back to you on that. I have changed my mind on different types of forges I wanted to build. But I might have to go with a coffee can style one for now to get me going a bit.
