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.

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

      I received it before I started my slab or stand and held it for 5 months before I started using it. Why don't I see what the response is, if somebody wants it who has their foundation and stand built, then maybe you can get it from them, otherwise you are first in line.

          Eprante,
          My stand and insulation are complete. I have some patio paving to finish up, but will be embarking on my oven very shortly. If your indespensible tool is still available, I'd be honored to 'borrow' it and forward it on when I'm done.

            John,
            since you are just about ready to start on the dome you are the winner of the indispensable tool sweepstakes. I also have some very nice arch forms if you are planning on semicircular arch opening. We added 1x1 slats to the inner arch form to use the same form for the outer arch. You can look at my build thread to see them.

            Metalman in Mississippi asked about the tool too, so when you are done with it check with him first to see if he is ready to use it. PM me with your address and I will ship it up, unless you are going to be in SD area in the next couple of weeks.

                Eric,
                I humbly accept your offer and would love to deploy such an experienced tool on my build! I have a college student who lives with us and is planning to visit her folks in downtown San Diego weekend after next. If she is able to make the trip I will ask her to stop by and pick up the indispensable tool and the semicircular arch form. Funny, I was giving this style of arch (different from my original design) serious consideration after seeing your and Kebwi's results, and now I'm sure I will make the change. If she cannot, maybe I can send you a check to cover the shipping.

                Metal Man, you're next!

                    I am currently in need of one--is it available for borrowing, or is it currently constructing another masterpiece?

                    Thanks!!

                      Claire,
                      The tool has been passed to Gianni Focaccia. This particular tool was made by Jim Gleim for the person who gave it to me. He may be willing to make you one,I think he is about to make a second oven( he moved). Send him a private message (jcg31).While you are at it check out his oven cam on his build thread, it is cool.
                      Good luck,
                      Eric

                        Sorry for the late response. Once I am done with the I-tool I have promised to send it to Metal Man. Perhaps you two can connect?

                          Re: Indispensable Tool available

                          I'd hate to see someone's oven build potentially be put on hold for weeks simply due to not having the I-tool.
                          While the clamping assembly of the I-tool is totally ingenious and makes brick laying very easy, putting together the tool itself gets a bit more involved than constructing a much simpler I-tool without the clamp. I noticed a good majority of the builders who built their own I-tool didn't use the clamp assembly, including myself.
                          My crude looking I-tool gave me a nice round dome. If you wedge your bricks they will stay put after a couple of minutes. You can then remove the I-tool from that brick and move on to the next brick.

                          The simplest looking I-tool I saw belonged to Eric's Minnesota Insanity oven build. If I were to build another oven I would make my I-tool similar to his. I would simply use one long threaded rod with a large tension nut on the brick end. The other end will pivot on a piece of plywood. The pivot end could be as simple as drilling a large hole in the plywood and simply letting the threaded rod pivot within the hole itself. Nice thing about this is that the rod pivots at the oven floor level. This I-tool would consist of just 3 parts.....threaded rod, tension nut, and plywood.

                            I may be a little dense, but can someone enlighten me to what this essential tool is?...

                              At the top of the "Tools, Tips and Techniques" forum you'll see "Hendo's dome gauge -- nice idea " the third item down. This about covers it.
