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.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

    Re: the indispensable Tool

    There are a wealth of these designs. Mine, alas is long gone. The short of my design was a small caster with the wheel removed and a rod replacing it. The rod ran long and a 2.5 inch piece of angle iron was attached to the rod to limit the inner face of the dome bricks. I didn't use a clamp and a wood rod and block could replace the metal rod and angle iron. Look at Hendo's info. at
    http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f28/...heme-2985.html
    and
    http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f28/...idea-2573.html

    Hendo is no longer with us, but I think he's the one that figured the tool out moving from the string as the tool that defines the inner dome. jcg31 has very helpfull info in his thread, a significant contributor that you should also find helpfull.

    What I did is on post 25, but I don't have a tight shot for you in these photos.

        Let me know what I owe you and I'll send you a check. I'm not in much of a hurry as not ready for using it before June 20.
        Thank you very much.

            Hey Rob - you're only a few minutes up the hill from me in Foslom.

            Here's the tool I built - cost me around $5 and has worked great. A small gate hinge, strip of birch and a Simpson Strongtie bracket.

            I'm a course or so from closing my dome. Good luck with your build.

                  Rob -

                  Don't know if you're headed to Arizona or if you wanted to head down the hill to Folsom to see what I'm doing.

                  I'll be working on it this weekend - probably Sunday - you're welcome to stop by. You can check out my thread in the Pompeii forum to see the project.

                  Thanks
                  Dan
