New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    1 - go to craiglook.com and search for used 10 inch compound miter saw (there are plenty!) in your area. You should pay $25 for it.
    2 - buy this Amazon.com: MK Diamond 159407 MK-99 10-Inch Dry or Wet Cutting… diamond blade
    3 - soak bricks at least 5 minutes
    4 - cut, build, bake, eat

    ...lol.... That's exactly the blade I got from Amazon, including a couple of 4.5" diamond blades for my grinder.
    My 20 year old 10" Makita compound miter saw performed very well during my dome build, thank you. ...

      I just went to Home Depot and paid about $80--wish I would have seen this.

        When dry cutting masonry PROTECT YOUR LUNGS! Professionals use wet saws for a reason

          yeah, I use a nice 3M mask, i dont think those very cheap, 5 for a $1 masks are good enough for this dust. Also, hearing protection makes the process much more fun.

            From personal experience, I highly recommend not breathing silicate dust. Wet saw, wet saw, wet saw, and even then wear a N95 mask or better.
