Securing Lathe to Insulation/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.

  • Securing Lathe to Insulation/Dome

    Planning to do the scratch coat this weekend, any tricks to securing the lathe in place?

    I used 1/2" square hardware cloth and found it pretty easy to get it to stay on the dome. I cut the cloth in to smaller pieces to work with and the cut edges tended to stick to each other well, I would bend them over each other in a few places as well.

    Good luck with the scratch coat!

      I used 1/2" hardware cloth, also. I did not secure the mesh directly to the insulation. I added a vcrete layer over it. But cutting and fitting the wire is probably about the same.

      This link may help explain.

      Also, the wire they use to secure the mesh in the roll makes great tie wire .

        I use thin wire ties embedded in the refractory, but another way to secure it is to hold it in place by tieing string around it. Where the string goes across the entry arch can be cut off later when you've worked over it and things have set.

          Those small plastic zip ties work well. Quick and easy. No tools required, except a small pair of needle nose pliers in some places.

            We used stucco wire mesh but the softer/thinner grade wire. Drilled holes into the counter a d heart. Ran screws and wires all around to secure. Came out perfectly round and secure
