Primvera 70 Cracking? - 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.

  • Primvera 70 Cracking?

    This is my oven's second summer, the oven has bee awesome! I did notice one hairline crack after my oven cured, but thought nothing of it as I read on here hairline cracks are normal.

    But not I am getting worried, as this hairline crack has gotten bigger! What should I do?

    The crack starts at the vent pipe:

    And continues into the dome:

    I have a similar crack in the vent pipe areas and I don't even know if it continues into the dome, lol. I have also cracks in two other places, see pictures.

      I'm pretty sure the Primevera is a single casting. Because the top of the oven gets really hot way before the base of the dome, there is considerable stress on the whole structure because the refractory is expanding at different rates and something is likely to give. Modular ovens in a number of pieces have these cracks "engineered"into the design. The oven won't fall down and the crack is unlikely to get too much bigger now the oven has found where it wants to relieve its stress.

        I agree as I'm not too worried. The oven should be fine "as is". However, I'll be worried if I have to relocate/move the oven around or take it off the stand.

          Cool, I wasn't sure if I should fill it in with mortar or anything. I love my oven and hope it lasts a loooong time.

            My giordino 70 cracked pretty much in the same spot.... Goes
            Pretty much the entire length of the dome down the middle. I'm not really worried about it.... Untill I have to move... Mine is built on a rolling stand so I'm worried when I have to trailer it to another house that the crack might get wider?
