Used Firebrick? - 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.

      Re: Used Firebrick?

      Just something to consider....

      I had originally gone to my local salvage yard looking for firebrick as new ones in West Texas are very expensive for some reason. Found some pretty nice ones for 79 cents each, but as I was talking to the guy he mentioned that the bricks had come from the local smelter plant were they refine copper. He did not know where or what part of the refinery. Anyway, it got me thinking that I did not want any brick that had been anywhere near a metal refining plant. Just seems like it could be permeated with lead or other heavy metals. I may just be paranoid, but for my food oven, I thought it would not be worth the risk. Good luck!

        Where did you find inexpensive firebrick? I live east of you a bit.

            ebay, I found a guy in indiana who bought a building which purchased new firebrick for a smelting furnace but never got around to building it. They really are cool, some are 6" thick, and completely arched for the inside of a 36" cylender, others are tapers for around the cylender, others are bright white tapers and for the inside of the furnace, I was told they are 90% alumina, and rated at over 3000 degrees, anyone for an acetalene fired oven, .5 sec pizza?

              I talked with a friend in the demolition business....he says they get firebrick all the time from tearing out old boilers......anyone in the planning stage might want to call their local demoliton contractors.

              Are there any negatives in using old boiler firebrick?
