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!

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.

  • HF tile/brick saw, pump in external reservoir

    I've read the suggestion of putting the pump in an external bucket to keep it from clogging up with brick dust/clay. I'm confused how the water system remains "closed" in this configuration. All the water is transferred from the external bucket to the saw's water-tray, but then never back to the bucket again. How does this work?

    Thanks.

    Hey Keb,
    Adding the bucket your just using fresh water, not a closed system anymore.... you refill the 5 gal bucket with fresh water as needed and the tile saw just overflows/drains onto the ground..

    Cheers

      So don't use it in the basement then. I'll come up with something, maybe notch the tray so it overflows at a single point, then put a bucket under it on the ground.

      Whatever...just wondering how it works. I have a picture now.

      Thanks.

        You can have a steady stream of new water going into the bucket with a hose, if you want to....

          That's how I did mine, unless I was just doing a couple quick cuts. Worked really well.

            I kept the plug in the tray so that it captured all of the saw residue. I just scooped it out periodically. I now have a five gallon bucket full of fire clay to use when I build another one.

              A wet saw indoors gets a bit messy, even if you recirculate the water in the tray you still have to contend with the spray going all over. The closest I have come to indoor use is my attached garage (cars pulled out in the driveway of course).

                If it doesn't have a plug, tilt it back and to the side just a little so that the water runs out of the corner into the bucket. The pumps don't really clog anyway so long as you freshen the water occasionally.

                As an FYI, I save all of the brick dust for a gauging and colorant material. Who can guess what this is:

                  Yeah, it has a plug, I forgot. I only just put it together last night. I haven't even turned it on yet.

                  Thanks.

                        Close enough, limestone dust.

                            No that is a couple of pounds of dust, a couple of hours of sawing four sides of thin veneer limestone. I put a piece of 1/4" hardi backer behind the blade to collect it (and reduce the mess).
