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.

    When cutting bricks on a wet saw the pencil mark will be very quickly washed away by the spay from the saw.

    Instead use an old aluminium (or how ever you lot spell it ) knitting needle to mark your cut, it wont get washed off.

    Or a red crayon carpenters pencil, which I give away by the thousands every year. PM me an address and I will send you some, Brickie, as well as some line blocks.

    Edit: and our calendar. We still have scantily clad ladies with power tools on ours.

      Owwh cool, I love trying new and different tools.. Thank you very much. PM sent.

      We are very limited for tool variety here at the end of the earth, and it costs about 4 times what you guys pay for it.

        Much truth to what you say about the aussie tool issue. A couple of months ago I sold several new/old model power tools on ebay. I never ship internationally because of the hassle. A guy on vacation in Orlando contacts me and offers full US retail price for 2 of them and asks if he sends prepaid shipping labels to Australia, would I sell them to him.
        I did, he eliminated the high cost and hassle of shipping for me. his total cost was exactly double the cost we pay at any tool house or home center in the US, and he was thrilled.

          I recently bought a Makita chain mortiser off the internet, retail in Oz $3000.
          The internet price delivered was $1400.

          The machine was made in Japan, shipped to the UK, sold on the internet (to me) then sent to Oz and was still less than half price, last time I looked on a map Japan was way closer to Oz than the UK.

          I dont get it?

            Is it import tariffs, personal property tax, sales tax, or a combination of the above?
            Really sounds shamefull. I couldn't survive without all of my tools and I don't think I would own many if I lived in OZ, based on my income history. How does the average tradesman do it? Everyone make DR. or lawyer salaries?

              There is import duty plus GST of 10%, that alone would make the chain mortiser 20% dearer.
              Still way under half price.

                And don't forget the huge mark up made by the distributors.
                They treat the buying public as morons with no sense of value.
                I bought a Husquarna commercial chainsaw from a web page of a large seller in California for less than half of the cheapest I could find in Aus. My nephew bought it back for me for free in his luggage (a separate case for the motor), the cutter bar, spare chains etc in his luggage.
                I also but Snap-on tools and carving chisels from the States for much less than they are available here.
                You must also however, be very aware of the sometimes exorbitant postage fees from the states.

                            Im good for most things, Ive seen the round spoon jointers they use over there and they dont appeal to me one bit sorry, they sell the Marshalltown ones here.

                            Tuck pointers? Small trowels, or like this? Either way Im good.

                            Ill send you (Pm me your address) a round jointer that Ive fallen in love with made from perspex, it is the best Ive used for 30 odd years of laying.

                              I get new "improved" tools to try, I will send you a couple of those so you can throw them away. I sell persplex jointers, we have a lot of white masonry here.
