Rebar question for enclosure - 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.

  • Rebar question for enclosure

    I am finally ready to enclose my oven. Is the use of rebar just to establish a consistent shape or is there a structural advantage? Also, the smallest rebar I can find in my area is #3 (3/8"). Has anyone used this size and is it hard to bend into shape?
    Thanks- Mark

    #3 grade 40 is bendable. You may try and find some #9 wire or pencil rod too. Both are used to make armatures for concrete structures.

      "#3 grade 40 is bendable."

      Yes, but it is not the easiest to work with without using bending tools. The 1/4 inch rebar was great but is getting harder to find.

      In answer to the Mark's question, the dome rebar that is used in a few ovens is primarily for shape not strength. Most (almost all) ovens do not use rebar in the dome.
