thin set for slate or masons mortar - 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.

  • thin set for slate or masons mortar

    Working now on my slate bit to fill in the front of the landing. Will cantalever out only less than one inch. I will face it with 1/8 th inch steel to hide the end grain of the slate.
    I find myself with quite the arsenal now of vermic concrete, high heat mortar(2 types) reg masons mortar and not sure to use some of the above or to shop for some thin set. I have used thin set before on a DIY floor at my home. On this application now I have a small space between the slate and exposed agragate stand and a large space between the slate and the vermic concreet underneath (maybee 2" deep). I am thinking of using reg masons mortar. Should I mix with sand. Oh yea I also now have some type N mortar. Man I do have a lot of materials out there. Also the steel border shown in attachment will also be part of the equation. I hope to fasten it to the slate with the same mortar. The steel band will be shaped to match the perimeter of slate and comming back around and tucking underneath the fire brick at the landing entrance....thanks wayne

    You could use Thinset Granite and Marble, but you don't have to. Personally, I'd use Type S and brick sand: 3 sand to one mortar.
