How did you blanket your dome?? - 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.

    How did you attach you blanket to your dome? I am looking into how I should do this and what good and bad might be?

    Hi Cypress,
    I used a thin layer of heat morter to adhere the first layer of blanket to the dome. It worked really well. If you're doing a second layer - that's a different story. I used chicken wire to hold the blanket in place but be careful.....the fricken wire kept cutting me. Be patient and don't swear too loud as the neighbours will start complaining!! In my opinion, this was the most frusterating thing out of the whole build. Good luck. ~Joe

        I was given a very long length of kevlar measuring tape, like the kind surveyors use. It had become damaged at the "dumb" end and so I was given it for free. Kevlar is used for many things: it is extremely strong and as such is used in bullet proof and slash/stab proof clothing; it is also resistant to temps up to about 1000F and is used in fancy hi heat gloves used by glass blowers. You can perhaps talk your local power crew or telephone guy into donating a length as it is used as pull line for pulling wire thru conduit (often really really long lengths!). It is gold in color and shiny so that should help in recognizing it. As pulling line it is often a flat woven tape. I didn't find I needed that much here are three photos of the steps of my blanket insulation:

        Hope they help,
