Doors: Insulating & Weather - 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.

    I have and idea for an insulating door. Would this sandwich idea work?

    Inside to Out:

    Sheet metal, 2 1/2 inch insulating firebrick, some type of wood to be able to finish.

    Any suggestions for a weatherproof outer door?, is it necessary?

    From other posts I learned that a bolt right through will be a heat drain, so perhaps sink the heads of the bolts to tie one side into the insulation brick & again in the opposite direction, so there will not be a right-through bolt.
    Weatherproofing need will depend on how deep your entrance is I guess

      The thicker the bolts the more heat conducted through. Don't use galvanized- poison. I used 3/16" stainless steel bolts. They've worked well. Screws get too hot and char around the threads, then you lose adhesion.

        Sorry I should have also said that my door only weighs 2.5 Kgs and has one single handle for one handed operation, very useful when you have a peel and pizza in the other hand.Yes I sometimes put the door 1/2 way in when the sting has gone out of the oven and we're still cooking pizzas.

          Thanks for the tip on the stainless & especially the galvanised Dave!

          Perhaps I did not explain myself clearly, so I will try with a picture :-)
          As per attached, I am suggeting bots that dont go right through & should thus not drain

            A clever idea. It will make it harder to put together and double the number of holes, reducing strength, but it might also work quite well. Give it a shot.

              Tnx. Your comment re number of bolts & strenght is a valid one which I have not given enough thought. Especially since there will be multiple insulation bricks & thus so many more holes :-(

              I will think some more :-)
