Finding firebricks and insulation in Switzerland - 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.

  • Finding firebricks and insulation in Switzerland

    You can get firebricks with the right amount of alumina content from these three places that I've found:

    Kandern Feuerfest GmbH
    (open Mo to Fr, EXEPT Friday afternoons)

    TONWERK Lausen AG
    (open Mo to Fr, but only sell to private persons on Mo and Wed afternoons)

    Tonwerk Lohn AG in CH-8235 Lohn SH Pizzaofen, Zubehör, Brotbackofen, Schamottsteine, Platten, Feuerfeste Mörtel, Betone, Isoliersteine
    (they have a really broad palet of products, no idea about the opening times, but they're about three hours drive away from where I live)

    Notice something? I wanted to start my oven floor this weekend, the weather's going to be perfect, no other plans, and I CAN'T GET HOLD OF THE FIREBRICKS!!

    Nothing for it but to hang around in the forum all weekend instead. This is soooooo AGRIVATING!!!

    Anyway, I'll get insulation from this company

    They sell all kind of rockwool products, at quite reasonable prices. And in addition, instead of throwing up their hands in horror when I asked for information (a reaction I get quite a lot on this project ) they were really helpful and pointed me in the direction of the precise product which they consider best for insulating a pizza oven.

    Well, just on the off-chance that anybody else near here starts building a pizza oven...
