Nigel, You may find interest in contacting Louisville Firebrick. They are the same company which once produced "American Security Archbrick". They can be reached here: All but one size of the original middle and side archbrick sizes are still available. It is not but 5-10% more expensive to purchase brick rather make ones own. ALSO, without the brick being properly "cured" in an oven it will be rapidly degraded by the sulfur in coal. Cheers, Jason
