To Grind or not to grind - 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.

  • To Grind or not to grind

    Hi All
    Well im 1 course away from closing the dome and whilst inside cleaning off mortar im looking at a few bricks over the transition that stick out here and there by 10 -15mm . Can i grind them back level or should i just leave them ?
    anyone got an opinion?

    Just like a flue, I believe an oven will operate optimally if it has smooth surfaces and protruding 'obstacles' are reduced as much as possible. Since you've put so much time and care into building your oven, why not tune it up while you still have the chance?

      I wouldn't bother. If it is in the transition area it isn't going to be seen or create any type of problem.

        Thanks for that, I suppose Im more concerned that the ground surface of the brick would be less heat resistant than the un cut fired outer surface??

          Look at Les' build. Every brick facing the inside of the oven has been meticulously cut.
