Blade Holders for Paragon

I have a Paragon and put my blades in a home made steel device but got curious about what others use to hold the blades. Maybe there is a better way...

I have never used firebrick but maybe. I have a old time maker pal who insists I need to build one out of steel, stainless he says. Ideas?

I like the fire brick approach. Using a masonry blade in a skill saw, cut slots for the blades. I have found the brick, or bricks, also soak up heat and seem to help the oven in temp recovery after opening the door. But to each his own.

Yup...firebrick. Easy to cut a little groove in them.. They work great.
