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.

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.

  • Rebar Bending Tool

    After bending some 1/2" rebars over the weekend using a couple of steel pipes I decided to get the right tool for the job. So I ordered a rebar hickey to make the job a little easier.
    This tool is great for making tight bends close to one another which cannot be done with two long lengths of pipes, although there are other ways of doing it such as using your car bumper or chassis to hold the rebar. There's nothing wrong with using pipes for making simple bends.
    I also thought of pouring a large concrete block with a couple of thick steel pins sticking out but I decided to just order the right tool. I got the Tolman rebar hickey with a 36" handle for $30. It can handle up to 5/8" rebars.

    Re: Rebar Bending Tool

    Although I admit it was a hassle to pipe-bend 1/2" rebar in the HD parking lot (to get the 20' rebar on top of my car to take home), I had no trouble subsequently pipe-bending it into very precise shapes at home with the use of a vice on a work bench (in conjunction with a pipe). You can see some of the ridiculously precise bends I achieved in my oven thread and my album.

    That said, there's nothing like the right tool for the job.

      Re: Rebar Bending Tool

      I thought of using my bench vise but I have so much stuff around and above my work bench that it would have been such a hassle to maneuver the rebar over and around them without having to clear lots of stuff out of the garage.

      But come to think of it, since my garage/workshop is clearly on the other side of the house I might just set up a simple outdoor work bench with a cheap, heavy vise next to my current project.

      I like to simplify these projects as much as I can....

        By an ironic twist of fate, my house is so *small* that the workbench is outside the basement, under the deck, which provides me with a bit more room for working around the vice than I would otherwise have had in a walled enclosure.

          Hello to all

          Concrete is poured over rebar to create a slab -- rebar provides reinforcement.

          A reciprocating saw has typically been used to cut rebar in the past but has been time-consuming and labor-intensive. Rebar was bent into shape with a manual bending tool. Today, a rebar cutting and bending machine eliminates much of the work and saves time. The machine can cut and bend up to number 5 rebar.


          Thanks for sharing

            ^^ I don't think I want to spend $4,000 on a rebar cutting and bending tool unless I do this for a living.
