    Just goes to show that while it's easy.. there are some basic precautions to learn before screwing around with blowing/eating fire.

    I've singed a few eyebrows myself, using 151 and paraffin oil.

    Oh yeah!

      This has been an interesting forum to read. However starting on page 2 and ending on page 6 the pictures don't appear. Any suggestions on how to see them?

        Paulages was an influential early builder, I learned a lot from his postings. His images were externally hosted, and the links are dead. I looked at his photobucket page, and there are only a few images there.

          can be made available but it would take James to break into the original postings and re-link them

            Paulages is a badass. He is my friend on Myspace.. That is a good way to get in contact with him.. He's helped me out a couple of times through there. Let me know if you want a link to his myspace page, of a google search will pop it up too..

              Hey all,

              I'm back in the saddle -- and I am pretty sure Paul is still available and using his oven often. I will contact him and see what we can do to host all of his photos here. As David says, Paul was early and did a wonderful job -- both the oven and pizza dough. :-)

              How are you doing Nick? Have you fired the beast yet?

                Been a while, guys... I lost the house in the split with the ex, and may need to build a new oven. If so, it'll be better than ever! I'm hoping to take the old one though, as the slip plane between the hearth and the base means I could possibly forklift the entire thing heart-up...

                  Haven't been here for a while, and haven't used my oven either, but today I finally get to go get it back! In one way or another...

                        Well Jim, that day came.

                        When I built this oven, I always had in mind that I could forklift the hearth right off of the stand. I arranged with the ex to come pick the oven up, and reserved a flatbed and boom lift to move my baby to it's new house. Kim and I were not on good terms, so she was not there when I arrived. Her camper was however, and was completely blocking access. This was a one-shot to get it kind of deal, so I had to break out the sledges.

                        I have photos of the carnage, but I'm in Europe at the moment. Loose perlite everywhere, smashed housing walls...it was ugly. I had to be quick though, and take the valuable components.

                        I now have a numbered pile of fire brick and chimney pipe sitting in my new garage. I think I'll be rebuilding it on a trailer this time.

                        Sooooo! What have you all learned in the last 9 years that can help me make this one better?
