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.

  • cutting curves in bricks/floor tile

    How do you cut curves/arcs in fire brick? Thanks, Larry

    You cut a series of lines, then finish the curve by moving the brick along the edge of the blade. Internal (concave) curves, are a little more difficult but are done the same way.

      Can you use a grinder to smooth edges?

        You could but the blade does a pretty good job by itself. Plus it's way less dust (assuming you have a wet saw)

        If at first you don't succeed... Skydiving isn't for you.

          When I cut curves in plywood, I hold the blade about an 1/8" deep, and make multiple passes, successively getting a little deeper each time. But, I think Dmun has the proper method for something as hard as brick.
          My oven (for now):

            If you gradually drag the face of the brick you are cutting across the blade at 90degree angle, you'll end up with a concave cut matching the outside diameter of your (10"?) blade. To match the more shallow arc of the interior of an oven, tilt the brick less than 90degrees.
