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.

  • What Type of Saw?

    I'm getting ready to build the dome and need some input on the type of wet saw to use. Do I really need a paver saw? The firebricks seem pretty pourous. Can I use a saw with smaller amps?

    If you are buying, look for a 10" 1 1/2hp motor. That would be my recommended starting size. If you aren't going to use it again, rent one.

      SSP,

      A lot of non professional WFO builders went with the cheap Harbor Freight 10" wet saw which run a little over $200. HF has the 20% off coupons all the time. Not the highest quality but does the job and fairly easy to resell when your done.

        I second UBee

        the problem with renting is that you have to have everything planned and ready to go. I found it virtually impossible to get all brick cuts correctly ahead of time so I ended up cutting as I built. I probably used the saw on about 25-30 different days (I also used it to cut regular brick for my surrounding wall.)

        The cheap Harbor Freight saw blade (which u can also get a deal on) lasted me almost the entire build. I bought another one near the end of the project in part so I can sell it with an OK blade!

        Good luck!

            I didnt use a saw at all... I used a hydraulic brick splitter...worked great! no dust...no noise...minimal effort. I used a hand-grinder when I need to custom-fit the firebrick.

              It is really all about what you can get your hands on at a reasonable price. It took me some time to get all of the cuts as the dome went up so hiring would have cost me a motza. I bought a 14" wet saw for $420, the blade has plenty of life left and I could get more than I paid for it. Seems like the way to go for me. Just have to find the right thing at the right price.

                Which one do you mean Russ...there is a 7" 1.5 hp tile saw for 188$ or a 10" 2.5 brick saw for $259. At least that is what's on the website.

                I never looked at them in person, I guess for a one off they are good.

                  Stonecutter,
                  It's the 10" saw from Harbor Freight that Russell is referring. Like he said a lot of us went that route. At the moment, the saw is $250, the stand, $50, and the blade is $30. That changes with coupons, weekly sales etc. Many have bought the saw on the intentions of selling it when they are finished with the oven . Mine has become part of the family .

                    You can't beat that price, that's for sure! It's just not the right for me though.

                      10" HF saw is what I meant. SC, yeah, you being in the trade, it is not the saw for you. I know what you mean Gulf. mine is in the garage taking up valuable square footage along with cement mixer. What is the saying, ....those who die with the most toys....... but I got to do some clearing out or build a new garage. I am encroaching on the SWMBO's parking area

                        Re: What Type of Saw?

                        I bought the 10" HF saw with the stand. With some MK Blades and I also bought a Dewalt continuous rim blade for tile. I've used it quite a bit already and it has worked great. Definitely better than renting as you will need to make cuts throughout the process probably. For SC it isn't a pro saw but it does a great Job. @ Russell - if you want to make some temporary room in that garage i'll borrow your mixer haha
