Perlite/Vermiculite in South Florida - 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.

  • Perlite/Vermiculite in South Florida

    Hi all,
    I have been building a 42" Pompeii and having a bear of a time finding Vermiculite or Perlite at a reasonable cost. I bought 2 x 4cu ft bags of perlite at a local hydroponics store for the rip off price of $50 a bag, because I had to pour my insulating hearth and couldn't find it cheaper. I am now finishing the dome (I swear I will post pics !!!), and am looking again. I found a great source:
    Winfield Supplies Edit- it is now called pro-source one. I t is a mile south of hypoluxo road on SR7 (441).
    8245 State Road 7 in Boynton Beach
    Perlite: $9.50
    Vermiculite: $17.49
    Woo Hoo!!!

        Try swimming pool supply/installation firms.

        Vremicrete is commonly used underneath the bottom and sides of pools.

            Swimming pool construction in FL does not involve perlite/vermiculite. No vinyl liners here. It is all concrete over rebar and mesh, specifially, one of several "shotcrete" techniques where the concrete is blown under pressure over the rebar and mesh, then finish coated. Also a small % of fiberglass pools.
            Food for thought, if there are any other potential FL oven builders looking for materials.

              Important point. The pool store workers are clueless about it. Thanks!
