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.

    Insulated oven door.

    Here is an insulated oven door Ive just completed for the new oven.
    Its fairly simple, 2 sheets of aluminium, 2 strips for the edges and some calcium silicate board in between.

    I had to get some welding done at the local shop and all up with materials cost about $50.

    The pic of the door in front of the oven doesnt show where the door really goes as the oven was lit when I took the pic.

      I love the hands. What are they made of?
      How thick did you make the door?

        The hands are from a child mannequin and made of some sort of resin.
        The door is 50mm thick.
        Just checked the temp and the outside of the door is 20c above ambient with the oven at 300c

              Is that carbon in the corners burning off quicker now?

                Seems to be, as with all ovens the more its fired the sweeter it seems to get.
                It doesnt really cool down now between firings as the old oven used to, tonight we have a beef stew in there.

                Ive also got onto a good reliable source of free Oz hardwood firewood in the last few days so its all good.

                    Re: Insulated oven door.

                    Originally I had a insulated door made for me at a local sheet metal business. I designed it with a capped 1" space between two metal sheets. I then used perlite as the insulating fill. I found that although I liked the "firing door" for roasts, ribs, & beans - its weight made it cumbersome to use during active baking like bread. I had a second, lighter "working door" made that I now use during pizza & bread bakes. Its handle was cut from an old welding tool handle and stays quite cool during use. I can lift the working door with my left hand while I use my right hand to put the loaves or pizza on the loaded peel into the oven.

                    I've attached a picture showing the two doors together at the oven. The second pic shows the lighter door painted with high-temp black (the dragonfly cutout is high-temp white).

                      I've also gone for a lightweight door. Using it one handed is a big advantage. Mine weighs 1.5 Kgs made from hardwood with a 12mm insulating panel attached with 3/16" stainless steel bolts. Often use it placed half way in the entry.

                        How thick is your aluminium sheet?? I'm looking at making a lightweight door with a similar design, i'll keep everyone posted on how that goes!

                        Cheers!

                          My door is made in the similar manner as yours. It is made of aluminum, two inches thick and insulated with 2" spun ceramic board, but I get a lot of heat transfer through it. It gets so hot that I need oven mits to handle the door. It is made in two sections, one "tub" section that houses the insulation and a second "backer" section with the handle. These two are bolted together. I am thinking of adding ceramic rope between the two sections to cut down on the heat transfer.

                            The sheet is 1mm thick.
                            Ive clocked the door and it only gets to 20c above ambient on the outside with the oven at 300c.
                            There will be some transfer of heat around the edges to the outside.

                              Its probably the bolts transferring the heat.

                              I did a second apprenticeship in boiler making long after Id finished my bricklaying apprenticeship.

                              In the boiler making courses we learnt lots on heat transfer, it doesnt take much to get the heat moving.

                              The larger the bolt of course the greater the heat transfer.

                              You couldnt glue the two together with something like this?
