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!

  • 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.

      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.

          Re: Rebar Bending Tool

          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.
