Hello, Forno Bravo Community Forum members.

As many may have noticed already, the Community Forum site was briefly down today. While working on scheduled routine maintenance, we encountered an error when trying to add a software update. As the site is now back up and running, some of you may notice that some recent data has been misplaced from November 10th up to today. We are currently working on resolving the issue. The forum has full operational capabilities and we encourage all forum members to continue actively posting in the threads.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this issue may have caused you. The Forno Bravo family values each and every member of our community. If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to let us know on our issues thread here:

      Re: Someone has patented the cast dome oven

      After reading the abstract and sections of the patent itself, I would amend the title of this thread to read; "Some has patented a type and method of creating a cast dome oven". Interesting find, sonomacast :-)

      In particular the author is patenting his attachment of the interior refractory to an outer shell thru the insulting layer using "pegs" welded to the steel shell passing thru the insulation and embedded in the refractory, creating what the author contends is a structurallly sound oven. Unless one is contemplating forming a business building WFOs using his method or idea, I think one has little to fear from litigation.

      And as for those who are wishing to build a one off for their own use even using his idea there is no fear for that is permitted with patents. Besides IMHO his idea has failings, the biggest being the steel supporting dome should be on the inside, not the outside.
