Fitting arch to dome - 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.

  • Fitting arch to dome

    We've put our Ristorante 130 together and are about to apply the mortar to the joints.

    The arch fits in a way that there is a large gap between the oven floor and the landing.

    Which is better:

    Fill the large gap with mortar?


    Grind down the back of the arch to get a better fit?

    Perhaps the oven was designed this way by the manufacturer. I've done a similar thing with mine to isolate the arch from the inner parts of the oven to reduce heat conduction to the uninsulated arch. I use vermicrete. You should ask the manufacturer of the oven.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      Thanks, David-

      your explanation does make sense. I talked to somebody over at Forno Bravo. I'm going to send him pictures of the oven.
