Dome insulation mix - 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.

  • Dome insulation mix

    Hi All,
    I'm about to start insulating my dome and was wondering what mix of cement/vermiculite experienced builders would recommend. I seem to remember 1:11 or 1: 12 ratios at some stage but would just like to confirm.

    Do a search on the forum and you'll get all the info you want. Basically the more cement you use the stronger the mix will be, but the less insulating it will become. It is all a matter of the density of the resultant mixture.
    Kindled with zeal and fired with passion.

      Thanks david,
      I did a small trial mix of about 1:12 last night (Australian time!)and by this morning to was pretty firm. I think the 1:11-1:12 ratios should be fine as there is no requirement for strength in this layer. I also take your point about more cement = less insulation.
