Hight temp-Mortar - 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.

    It looks like Sairset is composed of about 43% alumina and 50% silica, which is very similar to the tried-and-true HeatStop 50 (@ 40% alumina and 50% silica). I'm no expert, but it looks like the Sairset should work. The data sheet says to "apply in thickness less than 3 mm." Not sure if that would be an issue.

    In theory, it would be best to match your mortar composition to your bricks. According to the FB plans, low-duty firebrick is roughly 30% alumina and 50% silica, the same as the RefMix mortar available from FB.

      Members have had bad experiences with wet pre-mix mortar. The stuff tends to go bad, and get lumpy, and not dry properly. I don't know if they were using this specific product but H-W is a big manufacturer.

      My feeling? Why pay refractory mortar prices (and shipping) for water? We've got lots of that right on site.
