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 I was inside the wife came out and started laughing at me. I felt like I was caving when I was a few kilos less than I am now.

      The good news is that (touch wood) you will only have to do it once.

        Re: How to fit in your oven

        When I did my oven I did the outer arch and vent after I finished the dome so it was much easier to fit inside the oven to clean up the bricks without the outer arch stopping access.

        That said, it was still difficult & uncomfortable!

        It's a good looking build Doug.

          I sent my daughter in, child labor laws be damned
          Seriously, she was an adult at the time (22) and considerably smaller (OK, skinnier) than dear old dad.

            there was no way in hell my shoulders were fitting through my door

            Lucky I cleaned most of it up while there was still a hole.

              I cant work out as to why you would want to have the inside of the oven "clean"..... ?

                Doug, Your pictures freak me out just looking at them - I am claustrophobic. That's why I went the route I did, no mortar. There was no way I was going to crawl into the hole.

                  I fit although there wasn't much room for a table and chairs,

                  If one doesn't have a WFO large enough to get into, how does one make repairs? Or is such a WFO a tear down and rebuild should repairs become necessary?

                    As a spelunker who has over the years squeezed through a few cave "mouse holes" that were too tight to get through without exhaling, I know the feeling well, and it is something not easily accepted by one's brain. Because of this, I consider the act of climbing into one's oven to clean it the same as being inserted into a chamber (which I've done also) to have an MRI: piece of cake. At least if I ever got stuck cleaning my oven and there's still a hole on top my wife could hand me a cold one!

                      Brickie, that's because we don't have your brick laying skills and had to get inside our ovens to clean off the dags of mortar.

                        according to your first post...you are only 175 mm tall....thats 6.8 inches...so you should fit easily....LOL I know its a typo.....I am also clostro and had to be pulled out 5 times..and I am 230lbs and 5'-11".....to make it easier take a shop vac and bring the suction hose into the ovenwith you ..it will create a nice fresh air flow into the oven and give you some relieve. if you want to have fun...try turning off the vacuum and see how long it takes you to freak out....thats what happen to me.

                              karagie....i think you confusing milimeters with centimeters....2.54 cm per inch and 25.4 mm per inch so 175 mm / 25.4 mm/in is 6.9 inches
