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.

  • Using a 14" saw

    Any reason, other than dust, I cannot use my 14" abrasive chop saw mounted with a diamond blade for dry cutting concrete blocks and bricks? I have a squirrel cage blower I can use to help with dust.

    It will be a mess. I would try to avoid having the grit get inside the motor. Also, soaking the brick may help a bit.

      It's pretty common practice and very dusty, so wear a respirator or good dust mask. Don't bother soaking your brick or block though, it won't do anything... not trying to sound contrary to you here, Les...you will still get the dust anyway. Wet sawing isn't an option or are just trying to use what you have?

          You'll still get dust, but soaking will help some, and the blade will last longer.

            Maybe, if bricks held as much water as a sponge. Also, if the diamond blade is meant for dry cutting, water won't help with longevity either.

              Its funny that you say that. Fire brick is incredibly soft and porous, left in water it will pretty much get wet. Total opposite of a stone like granite or marble. I had a wet saw but for grins I dropped a brick in water for a few minutes - when I sliced it the water had penetrated about a quarter of an inch. Anything to minimize the dust will help

                Yeah, I know firebrick absorbs more water than stone and minimizing dust is a worthy goal. I cut tons of material every year...wet and dry. Op is cutting cmu as well as brick and soaking it, while maybe reducing the dust when saw initially contacts the block or brick at the beginning of the cut, it won't stop dust as the saw passes through. Ideally, wet cutting is the best way to stop dust.
