Refractory Mortar - 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.

      Heat Stop

      That refractory mortar is called Heat Stop, and should work fine.

      Or, you can make the fireclay mortar described in the plans, which is fireclay (ground up firebricks), sand and portland cement. It is not a true refractory mortar, because is it based on portland cement, but it will take the heat your oven will put out and you can easily find the components.

      We are going to be getting more Refrax in California, which is Italy's biggest refractory mortar brand, and really nice. I will make a posting when it is back in stock. It's $25 for 22lb (just add water). It's great stuff and made specifically for brick ovens and fireplaces. Our oven producer makes it.

          Thanks for the tips! I set the bricks for the stand today, took some pix. It was slow. I spent most of my time figuring out what to do; very little actually doing. Tomorrow should go faster, as most of the problem solving is done.
