Default Redco propane forge

I have a Redco Sr. forge that needs the mantles replaced. This was made in Wichita, but the original maker doesn't stock the repair parts. The mantles are 4 1/2" x 22 1/2". I haven't gotten them out because it is still somewhat useable, but it just isn't very efficient now. This is 50 year old tech but hopefully I can find them. They are held place with high temp epoxy and I might need to replace the floor bricks, but the grooved mantels are the big holdup right now.
Thnx

If it was mine I would buy firebrick and cut to size, but if that is not available, have you considered using castable refractory cement to create something the right size to fit in there?
