I picked up some fire brick a few years ago. It was a brick MFG plant and I went in to purchase some new fire brick. Instead he took some bricks out of the side of his brick kiln and gave them to me. He said they were going to reline it. I don’t know what they are made out of but they are very light and you can put a torch on them and they turn glowing red but the brick beside it is still cool. I use them when I need to clamp something when I need to weld. But I could probably make a small pocket of 3-4 of them and make a mini – forge to try what you are stating.
