gasket on brick? - 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.

  • gasket on brick?

    I didn't have the skills to build the arch of my oven with that jam (don't know ithe proper term/name) that a door butts up to. My plywood cut out that I use as a door now (was the arch support while building the vent) fits pretty snuggly in that there is only about a 3/16" gap at most between the brick and the wood. I want to just use a piece of fire gasket rope as the "jam" as well as to make it more air tight. Is there anyway to adhere the gasket rope to brick? I've found a product called Rutland hi temp gasket sealer that's rated to 2000F, and while it states that it can be used for brick, it's best used for metal to metal.

    Appreciate your thoughts and advice,

    Its more of a reveal than a jamb, rope stuck in place will last about 2 uses of the oven if you are lucky.

      If your opening doesn't have an arch instead of rope you could use some 19x19x3mm angle steel on the uprights and along the top. make it a snug fit so it holds itself in (snug enough so you need to gently tap it into place) and then you could use some gasket sealer to make it even more secure.

      All you would need would be an angle grinder to cut the steel and a bit of time. Downside is it might not look to your taste and you'll effectively narrow your entry by 38mm.

      If your oven does have an arch you would only be able to put it on the sides (unless your good with bending metal) and then I guess you'd aim to make your door as snug vertically as possible.

      Any photos of your ovens opening?

        It has an arch. I guess I was referring to the reveal. I've also thought about having a piece of steel maybe 1/4" thick bent to shape.
