Adjusting Bowl Clearance - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Adjusting Bowl Clearance

    I have noticed that the wire whisker attachment for my Thunderbird 20 QT (similar to Hobart 20 QT) is making contact with the bowl when it spins around.

    How do I adjust the clearance between whisker and the bowl?

    Anyone know the answer to this??

    Is it possible that the whisker IS designed to scrape the bowl directly? I wouldn't have thought so but I may be wrong ...

      the whisk along with the beater and the dough hook are not supposed to touch any part of the bowl at all! They should run close but not touch.
      I might suggest that the whisk is not the correct one for the machine.
      Some that I have seen have a large washer and screw directly below the shaft that connects via a bayonet fit to the drive shaft of the mixer where you can adjust the wire beaters of the whisk. You might like to check it out, maybe cut the top wires a little to allow 2mm clearaance between all wires and the bowl edge.

      Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

        Thanks for that Neill ...

        Actually I had been wondering about the size - particularly because the whisk that I was given with the mixer looks to be brand new!

        My guess is that they may have given me the one from their new 30 QT mixer. I may just sell that one off then if that is the case as it should have some value particularly as it would also fit the Hobart 30 QT model too which is quite common.

        It was probably a good move then to buy the complete set of original attachments, including the whisk for my T-Bird!

          Update here - yes, Neill you were correct. Since receiving the original TBird attachments I have compared the size of the one that I got with the machine with correct one and the one that came with the machine is quite a bit bigger. It seems to be unused and my guess is that it is for a 30 QT Hobart/TBird so I may sell it off as it isn't much use to me... I wonder what a 30 QT Hobart/TBird whisk is worth?
