chimney eating fumes? - 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.

  • chimney eating fumes?

    Have those of you with an igloo shape who've left your pipe bare also left it so you can replace the pipe? I can't tell from any of the pictures I've looked at- in some, it looks as though the stucco comes up over the transition from plate to pipe, and I can't tell whether that makes replacement impossible.

    I'm a bit unclear as well on the effect the fumes/acids have on the stainless double wall pipe and plate. Will they eat that too eventually, or is that just a problem with the regular single wall stove pipe? And really, how fast would it happen, anyway?

    No matter where I get my parts, it's a substantial amount of money, so I'm trying to figure out whether a chimney pot would be better at this point or not! Of course, I'm also not sure my arch can hold one up... (I always have those doubts, you know, no matter how good it looks at the moment!)

    I used a single walled 8 inch piece and a metal transition.
    I covered it with chicken wire and coated that with high heat mortar, vermcrete, and stucco.

    So far so good, but it hasn't been to long... I guess if the pipe corrodes I will still have a hole .... Not sure how strong it will be...

    It does have a few hairline cracks in the stucco.

      Depending on your chimney void, it it easy to fold up a bit of stainless steel into a inverted funnel with a rim of steel on top to take a section of flue. Mine is the picture attached and I am building one for hendo's oven which will then complete the oven itself, only the enclosure and roof to go. Very quick, easy, cheap and a breeze to replace the flue(s).
      Mine, I have 3 flues rising 10 feet, just been sitting there for 12 months without screwing together, ot stabilised. I can just go up to it and dismantle or replace it in a minute or so but don't expect that for at least 10 years. My flue pipes are only galvanised steel as stainless once it gets hot from welding or a good fire will rust just as quickly as a steel flue. Stainless steel must be 'passivated' with very strong acids (hydroflouric, hydrochloric and nitric acids) to eat off all the oxide scale caused through the heating process.
