Casting a Door

For the Tel Hai salt kiln. Cobi and Oded doing the work while I stand around making helpful comments. With the basic mould ready [as you can see,it's nothing fancy,put together from scrap wood] it took about an hour and a half to mix,pour and finish,sticking in appropriate bricks and plugs for the various openings required [burner,salt,cones/rings] and strips of tin to divide the door into manageable blocks. It needs a few days to set and dry,then a slow bisc and it's ready to go into service. We used two 25kg sacks of refractory castable mix,which cost around 350 shekels/$100.
