I'd like information on where to get materials at a good price. I live between Madison and Fond du lac. Just the regular materials I'll need like sodium silicate, lincoln 60 fireclay, premade firebricks, perlite.

I understand I need play sand instead of river sand.

And what type of perlite do I ask for? I understand that the agricultural type is not what is wanted.

I'll probably end up using just regular clay for everything.

Any information would be appreciated.
 
Do the next thing next. That’s a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that’s a pretty good rule, too.
