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.

  • Wear Gloves?

    I remember reading a post just a few days ago about gloves, lost finger prints....etc. etc.

    Well in my excitement today of starting the dome... I forgot the gloves.

    Yikes ! Skin loss = a valuable lesson.

    So if you play with the high heat mortar.

    Lime,
    Cement,
    Sand,
    Clay

    Use gloves!!


    Cuz these are my fingers today!

    Gosh I feel like an idiot!

      Re: Wear Gloves?

      I did a lot of work without gloves, because ordinary gloves are so cumbersome or flimsy, until I discovered these:



      They fit tight, they are waterproof without being sweaty, The rubber is textured so you can pick up anything, they are washable, and I wouldn't touch anything corrosive without them again.

          The ATLAS are all I use for block and stone as well as general purpose. For brick I use these: Harbor Freight Tools - Quality Tools at the Lowest Prices
          they are a closer fit for handling brick and wear much better than surgical gloves, much, much better. The only draw back is that they do make your hands sweat but I can live with that trade off. I use them for brick because I can feel more than the Atlas. As a EXCELLENT general purpose glove the Atlas as they say theses days "are the $hit" or is it $hits? got t check with my teenager.
          Actually I was at Wall Mart the other day and got a pair of "fishing gloves" in the fishing isle for a buck and some change that are actually a good substitute for the Atlas for light duty I was very impressed. I switched to the atlas several years ago because they will actually out last a pair of leather gloves and I have tried MOST of them from cheap to expensive.

            Personally, I hate concrete burns. They are just the worst -- much slower to heal than a cut or blister. It's a real burn. Hurts like heck.

            Dave, does that sound right? :-(

                    I wear the nitrile gloves underneath a pair of old leather work gloves.

                    A while back, someone mentioned rubbing the hands with vinegar after working with mortar. It helped quite a bit! Lately, I try to keep the mortar on the trowel and off of my hands, and that works too. (sometimes.)

                      Re: Wear Gloves?

                      The problem with gloves is the loss of dexterity. If I'm hauling a bunch of brick, the gloves are on. When I'm cutting or setting, they are off. My hands never got like that though - makes you hurt viewing the pic's.

                      Chris, what are nitrile gloves? Is this something we should know about?

                        Nitrile are similar to latex gloves, but are a little more resistant to oils and chemicals. They sell them at Harbour Freight.

                          Hey All!
                          I'm an interior painter by trade and I get my latex gloves on line at GALETON.COM. You can pick up a box of 100 nitrile gloves there for under $8.50!
                          Pretty cheap compared to the big chain stores!
                          I'm building my dome using Heat Stop mortar and I tried gloves but I can't feel for the flush edges on the bricks. So I keep a 5 gal. bucket of water and a rag nearby. When I get mortar on my fingers, I give them a quick rinse in the bucket and wipe them with the rag! No Problem!
                          Use whatever works for your safety!
                          Best to all,
                          Rick

                            I got two pairs just like these!

                            They are awesome and work great.

                            Thanks for the tip dmun.

                              This is the first time that I am reading this post.
                              When I need to work with cement, and the work is some kind of delicate one, for example finishing or coating, the only thing that I do is to wash my hands with oil (any kitchen oil, even canola, sunflower or heavy one if you have) and let the oil in there.
                              This had solved the big problems...
