gaps in floor brick. - 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.

  • gaps in floor brick.

    For the floor, how vital is any gaping between bricks? I used the fireclay/sand mix over the perlite/cement layer and I'm pretty certain that at times some of the fireclay/sand mix wedged between bricks, making the gap. The gaps are not huge, but there are places where they are not touching. Since I have not begun the soldier course and as the fireclay/sand mix has no mortar, it would be a nuisance but not outrageous to just start over. Any ideas?

    the gaps will fill with ash as will the gap between the soldiers and the floor and will keep the bricks from moving around too much. no big deal.

      Re: gaps in floor brick.

      I was wondering the same thing. My floor bricks started out really tight, but have loosened quite a bit during the dome construction phase. Some of the gaps are approaching 1/8" thick.

      What about pouring a tiny amount of thinly mixed refractory morter in the larger gaps (that I can reach) , or should I just let them be?

        Leave them be: your gaps will fill with ash. The only floor problem you will ever notice is a proud brick that catches the peel, and you can just kiss the edge of that with a angle grinder.

          Like Lauren Hutton, I'm leaving the gap. Thanks all.

            Thanks for the info.
            I already did the belt sander thing to smooth things out. It's amazing how "soft" firebrick is......
