Amount of fireclay? - 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.

  • Amount of fireclay?

    Hi Folks,

    Im beginning to put together the materials for building the dome. I was wondering if anyone could give me an idea of the amount of fireclay i might need? Im looking to build a 38" dome, so will need enough to make the mortar for between the bricks and also for underneath the floor. The supplier i have sells them in 25kg bags. Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers Ross

    Hi Ross,
    my 40" Pompeii consumed less than a 25 kg bag of fireclay when used in the poor mans mortar of 1:1:1:3, ie fireclay, portland cement, quicklime and brickie sand.

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

    The more I learn, the more I realise how little I know
