Someone has patented the cast dome oven - 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.

      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.
