Not being able to find the 2 "coal panels" for my Weso 020, I built a wooden mold and filled it with refractory cement. After curing for 24 hrs. I tempered them in my oven at 300 degs for 2 hrs. then at 450 for 2 more hrs.

Paul, I used Rutland Castable Refractory Cement which can be ordered on line as no hardware store or HD around here had it.
It was about $45 for a 12.5# bucket and you mix it with water. Very simple.

I thought that castable refractory looked familiar. No wonder they look so good ! :D

I'm using the same for my Glenwood # 6 firebricks.

Hand Fed Coal Stove: WESO HSK125C
Other Heating: Oil-fired hot water boiler

I saw that "sav" had cast these parts. I wonder how they worked out over time? I have a WESO 125C and these parts (which appear to be a slightly different shape) are still in great shape but one of the two removable cast-iron plates on the rear interior wall has warped some. They protect the outer stove castings. I'm planning on using the same material to cast a set of the rear plates, seeing as WESO parts are no longer available. Although the cast original parts have a lot of shape, it appears replacements can be cast thicker and flat, except for the overlap in the center, while still fitting like the originals. For what it's worth, I saw a video on YouTube of guys casting refractory cement and they said adding reinforcing fibers makes it more crack resistant. They used steel wool cut up with scissors. You can also buy stainless steel wool. I plan to try using cut up mineral wool fibers first and then maybe try the steel wool route. Does anybody have any experience with castable refractory panels/parts as opposed to formed in place linings?
