New fire brick available near Kalispell. Is this a good price?

I just tripped over this ad: https://kalispell.craigslist.org/mat/d/bigfork-insulating-fire-brick/6941073454.html
TLDR is he has lots of new fire brick available for $1/brick or a pallet of 684 for $200.

That's perhaps 90 minutes from me, but I think it's a very good price. Is it?

How much do you pay for fire brick?

If there's others in the area that want to go in together on a pallet I'd be open to it.

(Should I have posted this in the Missoula forum instead? Moderators please feel free to move it if appropriate.)

Sounds like a great find - maybe someone will comment on the brand quality, but if you need anywhere near 200 the pallet sounds like the way to go (assuming you have a transport option).  Never can have enough fire brick around :)

Just bear in mind those are insulating bricks, they sound great and would be great, for certain applications.

Hi Ashley;
Yes, that is a very good price for brand new insulating bricks.  Even at 1.00 each.  They won't work well  for a feed tube, but for a burn tunnel and riser they are fine.
Mutual materials in Missoula  is the place to buy heavy fire brick/  full and splits. Also best place to buy bags of fireclay.
 
Did you just should on me? You should read this tiny ad:
