Ceramic FB supply in Canada? - 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.

  • Ceramic FB supply in Canada?


    I am looking for a supply of ceramic fibre boards and blanket in Canada. Any ideas? I am in BC. The local building supply outfits do not have a clue, and even the fireplace supply people are struggling.

    You need a refractory supply, and usually google is your friend in this regard. However, I can't seem to locate one in your nearest city, Victoria.

    Curiously, on the first page of the google search is an FB thread of five years ago, pointing to IXL brick in Alberta. A phone call there might help you.

      since this stuff does not weigh much you can get it shipped from Ontario from Welcome to Alphatherm Inc. - About Us..
      Also try a Ceramic/pottery supply company in Vancouver..
      or Tucker's pottery supply in Toronto [ where I bought my blanket]

        Hey, thanks for the tips.

        I finally found a supply; Clayburn Industries in Abbotsford, near Vancouver.

        However, the ceramic fibre board actually comes as a 9" "brick". It is the same calcium-magnesium-silicate material as the FB Board, just comes cut up smaller.

          Good information Andrew. I've seen lots of used Clayburn bricks around over the years. Good to know they're still in business. Slegg Lumber carries some kind of FB, perhaps Clayburn.
