Floor sanding? - 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.

  • Floor sanding?


    My oven is moving forward nicely I am on the fourth course need to post pictures but I am building a 36" oven and tapering all of the bricks. Had a problem right off the bat with the HF saw as it wouldn't spin up fast enough to disengage the motor brake. Fixed that by removing a spring from the motor brake.

    Anyway, my question is on the floor. I have been trying to smooth it out using the brick and belt sander technique. So far I have gone through a lot of belts as they seem to tear easily and have a relatively rough surface. Does it matter if the brick is rough as long as it is even? Any suggestions for making it smooth?

    I used 40 grit from lowes - they have 2 flavors and either one of them sanded pretty well. They do wear out fairly quick. I think if you get the edges removed you will be good to go.

    Check out my pictures here:

      Hi Julian,
      I experienced the same problem and used a special grinding disk on my angle grinder (or 7" 2 speed buff).
      See the details on: http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f21/...-4-a-2045.html

      Sand your floor BEFORE you close the dome for accessability and if you don't you won't be able to see what you are doing. Also the abrasive dust going through your grinder motor will stuff it up in no time.

      Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

        Um, from the peanut gallery. If the floor is rough any dough will stick to it.
