Heat proof Glass - 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.

  • Heat proof Glass

    I have some old glass panels from an old 1970s gas heater
    They are roughly 200mm x 70mm wide and about 7mm thick. (brand new still in paper, have been bought as a replacement and never got used)
    something like this but older

    As you could imagine having natural gas heating up the ceramic only centimetres behind it for years its a pretty heat resistant glass.
    Do you think this could be successfully incorporated into a dome to either create a window or protect a light?

    jcg31 used glass for his blast door. That is the only place I'd consider glass in a wood fired oven, (because of the high heat loss via the glass).

    If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.
    Our One Meter Pompeii Oven album is here.
    An album showing our Thermal Breaks is Here.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.

      Maybe it might be a good insert in a door, double or triple glazed???

        I have seen a build that incorporated a light-protecting window made of glass from a home oven. I know that this type of glass doesn't last forever, but is a viable short-term solution.

          Do you have any photos?

          I think I've got 6 or 8 pieces buried away in the shed

            Apart from the heat loss thru the glass, it seems like a lot of trouble. I would imagine the glass sooting up fairly quickly as well.

              I think I saw the link to the actual build site was somewhere here on the FB site. If I can find it I'll post it. Sorry to not be of better help.
