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.

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.

  • Paul's plywood pizza placement peels

    So I could make a few pizza at once and have them ready to load into the oven I made up 4 plywood peels. I made them out of ply because it was much cheaper and the only solid wood wide enough was 20mm thick.

    They are made from 6mm ply and as a 6mm handle is not stiff enough I used 19x38mm Tassie Oak trim which is glued to the ply on either side. The peels base is 350 x 350mm and the total length is approx 900mm. All of the edges have been rounded and the whole thing sanded smooth before being lightly oiled.

    I have been using them a couple of months now and they make handling pizza much easier as I can make the up in the kitchen and carry then out to the oven to place them. I still use my metal peel to rotate and remove them.

        That is awesome - thanks for posting. I was looking at a similar design and struggled on the handle. Looks like the bugs are worked out. Question - is that a hardwood or cabinet grade plywood or just a clear grade? Enquiring minds want to know!

          Sorry ThermoJax, I don't have any other pics but it was a very simple construction. I marked out the ply (2 peels on a 900 x 600mm sheet), cut them out with my jigsaw, rounded the edges with my router, glued the handles, drilled a 20mm hole at the top of the handle and sanded smooth.

          Chris, I don't know what grade the ply was but 2 of them were built from basic stuff at $8 per sheet and the other 2 were made from better quality at $16 per sheet. The cheaper ply has warped and is a rougher surface than the better quality stuff.

            I've got a couple of homemade peels with long handles... don't get rid of the short ones!! I find the long handles make it difficult to maneuver when people are around. I need to make some short ones.

              I agree, the long handles tend to clock some poor kid in the head. A handle longer than necessary is a pain. It is no trouble to reach into the oven for a second with a wooden placing peel. For the turning peel, I think you only need a handle about as long as the oven diam. the extra length of the tool head enables you to reach the back of the oven without getting too hot, providing the entry is not too deep.

                Doug, My peels were 900mm total length so the handles are approx 550mm. This length is fine to place the pizza in the back of the oven without singeing the hair on my hands!

                The marine ply sounds a bit stronger than the ply that I used and I have been conscious not to dunk them in water to wash them but to just wipe them off after use.

                I did start cutting my pizza on the ply peels but I found that it was roughing up the surface too much and it kept on needed to be sanded back to keep them smooth otherwise pizza would not slide off properly.

                  Dang metric system!

                  1000mm= 39 5/16" (closely)
                  300mm= a little less than 12"
                  100mm=4" (again closely)


                  I'm not going to say the metric system isn't easier, just not as well known in the States. Heck, even in Canada I used the Imperial system for construction, unless it was a government deal.
