Forum Members:

We have received feedback regarding recent issues with page loading response time. We believe the slow response issue stems from the analytics we added with the new Forum. We are in the process of reconfiguring those elements and, after an approximate 24-hour time period for the reconfiguration to run, we anticipate a return to normal page load times. Thank you for your patience!

Hello, Forno Bravo Community Forum members.

As many may have noticed already, the Community Forum site was briefly down today. While working on scheduled routine maintenance, we encountered an error when trying to add a software update. As the site is now back up and running, some of you may notice that some recent data has been misplaced from November 10th up to today. We are currently working on resolving the issue. The forum has full operational capabilities and we encourage all forum members to continue actively posting in the threads.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused you. The Forno Bravo family values each and every member of our community. If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to let us know on our issues thread here:

      I'm in Hamilton.
      The cheapest new fire bricks I found are at Huntly Placemakers $6.55NZ/Brick. If we want cheaper new bricks then just wait for one of their '15% off everything' sales.
      You can get second-hand fire bricks from places like Trademe etc
      The cheapest vermiculite I found was at Switched on Gardner for $55NZ/100 litres.

      Regards Andrew

        REfractory materials of many types and this includes insulation are available from Shinigawa (spelling???) in Huntly. Bricks are about $5, and insulation is about $110 per 7.5m roll. Pretty good.
