Clay Flue Question ? - 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.

    In our town, the masonry supply store is the best options. They have selection on size, and best price.

    Look under 'masonry supply' in your phone book...

    Good luck with your repair!

      Flue tile is cheap, but it's heavy. If you're in a hot climate, there may not be much call for flue tile, since it's used to line chimneys. As Jed said, check with the brick yards: the 8" square is the most common size, and the one you want. It may not be practical to ship.

      There's been some talk of substituting 8" cast iron waste pipe for the clay liner. It may be more readily available.

          The stainless one i used didn't hold up
          What type of stainless did you use, 304 or 316?
          Also how old was it and what conditions was it used in?
          Stainless should last you 10 to 20 years in a flue. I'm hoping to get 5-8 years from the galvanised steel that I am using and then replace it with the more expensive and harder to find stuff. The ceramic or enameled (porcelain and not the enamel paint though) coated steel flue is also an option.

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

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

            No, not even close. Single wall stove pipe will rot out in a season or two.

                  Chimneys get very hot, particularly down at the bottom. Concrete may crack and spall, and refractory cement is expensive.

                  I can't believe that you can't get flue tile in a big city.

                  is a place in NO that brags about a full line of masonry fireplace accesories on their homepage. And that's just the first listing i clicked on. There are dozens of others.
