043 - Indispensable Tool rev2.
Finished product, this worked very well for the entire dome portion of the build.
The 3 wooded legs are attached to the base by hinges to allow for removal of the IT.
Each of the 3 legs has a threaded pad installed in the end to allow each leg to lock against the base of the dome to hold the IT in place and centered throughout the build.

The design for my indispensable tool was from the basic concepts in jcg31's post:

044 - Each dome brick was cut w/ an angle and a bevel.
This ensures an almost mortar-less joint on the inside of the dome.

I cut 1 full brick into 2 angled & beveled bricks by making 3 cuts.
See this post by mrchipster for more info:
http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f28/possible-new-idea-brick-cutting-table-16780.html (Possible - New idea for brick cutting table)

I marked the bricks as 1up, 1down, 2up, 2down to keep track of each brick as I made the cuts.

To get a good understanding of how this works, read through each of these posts:

Here's JCG31's chart for cutting 2 bricks w/ an angle & bevel in 3 cuts from 1 full brick.

I used the iPhone level app to set the wetsaw jig for each chain.
Pics of this jig are coming up soon.

This is a good view of how tight the interior joints are by using the angle & bevel method to cut the dome-brick halves.

052 - Mortaring 3rd chain, positioned using Indispensable Tool & shims.
I learned the hard way that you should wear latex (or other) gloves...Bloody fingertips take a while to heal after scraping the skin off from spreading mortar with bare fingers.
