New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena


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.

  • Need help with HF saw

    Hope everyone is enjoying the end of summer and the beautiful evenings that go with it.

    I went out today to try my hand at tapering a brick for my hemispherical inner arch and found what I had suspected all along: after hundreds of cuts in putting my patio pavers in, my HF saw is out of alignment. Not only is the bottom of the blade tilting in toward the post, the path of the blade gets wider to the right as I push a brick in towards the saw.

    I pulled out the allen adjusting screw on the horizontal shaft and tapped the motor assembly in with a rubber mallet, but after tightening there is still a ton of play in the shaft. I can manually push and hold the motor (and blade) back into vertical, but it won't stay there when I let go.

    Humbly asking for any advice in getting my saw back in alignment.

    Hey John!
    Here is a link to JCG31's info on the HF10. Let us know how it turns out.

      Thanks a bunch! I'm on it. I had attempted a FB site search (and Google) using words like Harbor Freight, HF, alignment, etc, to no avail. After seeing jcg31's post I searched using the words blade + alignment, and voila!
