Recommended Construction Equipment - 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.

    This is probably in the wrong area of the list - my apologies

    I've seen some very informative posts on masony tools, masonry saws, concrete mixers, etc.

    I haven't seen much on heavier equipment.

    I have some earth to move in my back yard. Not alot but there is a berm to skim the top off and some general levelling.

    I've had only limited exposure to a Bobcat and found that I was not too effective at scraping dirt (- like cutting the tops off berms) as I thought I should be. I'm in the southeast US - hard red clay. In my inexperienced hands I found it was very good at tearing up the grass!!! It did get the job done, though and was about the most legal fun I've ever had for 250 bucks!!! Had a decent lawn again about 9 mos later. - but I digress.

    I saw the other day at the rental store a ditch witch skid steer. looks like a mini bull dozer with tracks that you stand behind to operate. Has anyone had any experience with those interms of earth moving and in terms of using it to move piles of gravel and sand as I put in the subbase for my pizza oven foundation and patio?

    Anyone have better suggestions on what I should rent?

    Should I even rent? I know it depends greatly on the area, but anyone have a general feel for how much experienced labor could I get for the 250 daily fee for the bobcat? The stand up skid steer is about 150 a day.

    This is a great list - thanks for all the help!

    My oven progress -

    I rented this thing. I thing it cost about $200 for 24 hours. It dug down about 3 feet in hard colorado clay. It saved my back from the most gruntlike of the grunt work and it was fun to drive.

    They called it a mini-excavator.
