7" Tile Saw - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community


1 of 2 < >

New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena


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.

  • 7" Tile Saw

    Hi, I am getting close to bricking my oven and was wondering if this saw would do the job. The main thing I'm worried about is if the brick will fit under the blade while cutting. Thanks for any help

    I'm pretty sure this is the same as the MK 7" saw, just rebadged Husky. No it won't cut through a fire brick on one pass. I started out with an older MK 7" and actually went to the trouble of building a new rolling table that would just barely cut through the bricks before hitting the arbor.....then the bearings went out...so I bought a 10".
    Not sure in Harbor Freight exists north of the border or if import duties for you are too high, but for around $200 you get a pretty darned good 10" saw that will cut through fire brick in on pass.....like a hot knife through butter.

      There's a Harbor Freight store in Syracuse, NY - Not too far from Toronto. Like RT said, you would need to figure out what the duty would be or just hope they don't check your trunk.

        Re: 7&quot; Tile Saw

        Harbor Freight here in Rochester too and maybe Buffalo--saw is on sale for the next week or so and it does not look or work like a cheap unit. Diamond blade another $30 and together they really do a heck of a job. It is much heavier than I expected so my plan to use sawhorses on rough ground proved less appealing. I went back and paid the extra $40+ for the wheeled stand which also is deceptive in that it looks unsubstantial but is tight and right with the weight of the saw on it. The laser thermometer is also on sale for more than 50% off so you can get quite a bang for your buck. I sprang for the 2 year insurance under which they promise to replace either if they stop workig during the next two years.
        The only drawback so far--my wife realized it could cut bricks,slabs and stuff for the garden ! John

          Alright you guys convinced me. I'm going to Iowa next month for business, maybe we will just happen to drive past a harbor freight.

          Thanks for bringing me to my senses
