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.

  • Cure before adding extra mass??

    I am planning on adding extra mass to the oven dome in the form of the homebrew mix. Should I partially cure the dome before doing this?
    thanks,

    Not unless you have a pile of wood and time to waste!
    Why dry out your bricks and mortar and then again after adding extra thermal mass. It just doesn't make sense to me.

    Prevention is better than cure, - do it right the first time!

    The more I learn, the more I realise how little I know

      Thanks Neill, I'll wait and fire it when it's done.

          It is generally considered better to cure the oven after insulation, but before making the outer shell.

            fire it up 6 to 8 times let the dome crack big time and then fill in the cracks with the cement mix which includes the stuff that expands then add the extra mass it will crack anyway just go with the flow.

              I agree with Kingfisher.

              Put on all your mass and your insulation then fire it up. Any cracking or problems will show up and you can patch and correct if necessary before putting on the final finish. My dome expanded considerably but the outer vermiculete layer seemed to stay and not shrink back, so when I put on the acrylic stucco layer I didn't have much cracking.
