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.

  • Unknown tool, any ideas what it is?

    Ok, keepers of the esoteric: anybody know this tool? It has no identifying marks or logos save in the center of the waffle like area is the number or date 1929. It's made of aluminum and looks like it has been used either over an open flame or in a high heat environment like a WFO. Unlike a waffle iron it closes so there is very little void where the waffle would normally form. Here's the photos, any help appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Wiley

        I like that Brickie! I considered the "cookie"/wafer idea.

            It looks like a sheet metal hand brake to me.

              Yeah, Brickie that is the the only date upon it.

              From the other forum I queried, they came back with a "pizzelle iron" a device for making pizzelle cookies which is fitting for this forum as they are Italian. At the moment that is the best guess, although most such devices seem to be hinged from the end rather than from the middle.

              Google came up with a demo and recipe and so next WFO firing I will give them a try. Learn how to Bake Pizzelle Cookies video from Answers.com Videos

                Hi All,

                It's a Pizzelle maker.

                Look here: Pizzelle

                Cheers,

                  Thanks Bob,
                  That's very close to what I found/was told especially that the date was not the date of manufacture but rather a commemorative date (birth, marriage etc).

                  Here's what a member from another forum (specializing in collectable cast iron and aluminum cookware) had to say:

                  " I think it is from one of the Philadelphia makers, my spelling is awful, but it might be Bachelleri Bros, maybe Guinta, there are a couple more that I just can't think of off the top of my head. They would put a significant date like a wedding or birthday on the cookie, that's the date you see (the purchaser would do that). Likely made in the 20's. "

                  I'm firing the WFO this weekend (for pulled pork) so I'll try my hand at pizzelle and see if I can make anything worth eating.
                  Thanks,
                  Wiley

                    Glad you got your object ID'd and put to good use. When I first glanced at your pizzelle iron it reminded me of a waffle iron I picked up in an antique shop in Puebla, Mexico.

                      Wow, I was composing a reply on the pizzelle thread as you were posting.

                      Waffle irons!

                      Exactly!

                      Bests,

                        Definetly looks like a pizzelle iron...mmmm, I love pizzelles.

                        Make some if you have the chance. Our family always had them at Christmas.

                        Thanks,
