Old Kiln tile/brick - 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.

  • Old Kiln tile/brick

    The Tile plant in town closed down this year & a local surplus / hardware store bought all the tiles from the kilns. I'm wondering if they'd be a good firebrick to make a barrel style oven. They're approximately 20x20. I'll try to get some pics of them in the next couple of days.

    You will need to check what nasties were fired in the oven in the glazes, heavy metals etc.

      Based on what I can find they used Water based glazes since the mid 1990's...... I'd think the blocks have been replaced in a commercial application since then. I think I might get one of those instant lead tests & try swabbing the blocks first....... (I know lead isn;t the only concern.

      I pic of them can be seen on the bottom of page 5: (Listed as refractory trays)
