Hi All;  Building a new rmh this summer. Been out rounding up supplies.  I had been getting my Lincoln fireclay and split bricks over in Spokane at White Block.  I have located a better source in Missoula ! Maybe twenty minutes closer and better price with no sales tax!  (Of course Washington doesn't charge Mt people sales tax but I just like spending my money at home)
Mutual Materials just off of Broadway,  has Lincoln Fireclay at $6.27 a bag and split firebricks at $1.77 each !  Great price ! I paid less than $33 bucks for 15 bricks and a bag of clay!  They do not carry the insulated bricks. They do have a few #50 bags of very expensive refractory ($105.00 ! )   I can buy a lot of fireclay for $105 !

Well done Thomas! I wish we could get hold of fireclay and splits at that price over on this side of the pond... (Wales, UK)

Cheapest I can get in Australia are $4.60 per brick. I'm picking up a heap of seconds today for $2ea to finish my project. Hopefully the condition is OK!
