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.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

  • home made compound miter brick saw

    I made a modification to my dewalt 24000 this morning and it has proven to be very useful.

    I took a replacement part miter gauge from a RIGID brand table saw and incorporated it into the deck of my dewalt.

    Here are the before and after photos.. it was very easy...

    One more mod..

    I removed the set screw and replaced it with a knob so I can turn it to increase the compound miter angle as I move up the dome in rows.

      Few more mods..

      I added a 0.3125 aluminum spacer plate between the saw neck and the base plate to raise the cutting head to clear fire bricks laid upright.

      I trimmed the outer blade cover plate to allow a brick to pass under it closer to the blade retainer nut ( but not touching it )

      I removed the rear water skirt.

      With these mods I can now bevel a full 4.5 x 2.5 x 9 fire brick in one cut.

        Todd if you don't mind I will be asking you some questions, when I get to building my oven in it's permanent location.I bought the exact same saw as you have yesterday at a local pawn shop.I just could not pass on it.I figure I can rent it out or loan it to some of my friends when they get to build there ovens.I was not sure if I could use it on brick,but the Dewalt Rep. said no problem with proper blade.I am happy to see that someone else on this forum has the same one as I have.Thanks

          Thanks Castiron, if you have any questions let me know..

          The miter part I used was a RIGID TH1006

            Hi Tod,
            Iím planning to acquire 10í tile saw to cut bricks in the same way that you, but is not clear for me the form that you put the blade to cut that angle in one pass, can you place more pictures? It will help me to understand that method that you use, Iím going to appreciate you help.
            I pretend to acquire RIDIGID 10" Wet Tile Saw with Laser that is little less expensive that tile saw that you used, if I canít use it in the same way that you I will expense more to acquire the same that you
