brick thickness for top of landing arch - 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.

  • brick thickness for top of landing arch

    The start of my landing archwork is shown here in attachment. I have a one and a half inch reveal from the vent uprights and arch to the landing uprights and arch. If I stand my arch bricks on end for the landing arch for the top of arch as I did for the vent arch work because of the one and a half inch offset these bricks at the top of landing arch will be higher than the vent arch. My question is should I cut the bricks to be 3" instead of 4 1/2" wide so the tops of both arches will line up better? This will make my transition to anchor plate etc much easier but I will have only 3" in height instead of 4 1/2" on the top of arch brickwork. Is this OK or does it matter? ......wayne

    I may be confused, but I understood your question to be "is a three inch brick thick enough for the landing arch? Simple logic (not REAL knowlege) tells me that yes, that is plenty thick enough. Should be plenty stong as the force of the anchor plate's weight will be transfered to the upright bricks - which will still be 4 1/2 wide. And you don't need to worry about heat retention in the entry since there is a bit hole in the top anyway. Hope this makes sense.
    Your vent arch looks great. Too bad you will only see 1 1/2 inches of it.

      Thanks Dusty. This confirms what I was thinking but wasn't sure. I will go with the 3" bricks for the vent transition area so things line up flat for me at the anchor plate. Out at the front of the oven I can allways go with the full 4 1/2" brick for that rectangle look that might be nicer in apperance.....wayne
