Mounting anchor plate? - 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.

  • Mounting anchor plate?

    I've got a stainless anchor plate which is going to accept an eight inch diameter, double walled, insulated, forty-eight inch tall chimney. The cheminey and ran cap weigh approx. forty pounds total. Anyone have any thoughts about the best weight to mount those plates?

    Brick it in?, use masonry-type anchor/screws?

    Any help appreciated . Here's what I have to work with:

    Chimney and plate just resting in place..

    Plate just resting there...(looking down from above oven)

    This is the surface the plate will mount to (also looking down from above the oven...you can see the ash chute in the top of the photo)

    I used blue screws (Tapcons). It's been exactly 5 yrs, never an issue. I'm not sure how you are finishing, I did an igloo. When you factor in insulation, mortar, tile, then a complete refinish over top of that; Mine is encased in at least 8" of mortar, tile and stone...its not going anywhere.
