Wouldn't this effectively be 0?

I meant, the dimensions of the brick. I see cut brick dimensions (columns Q & S) for inside bottom and outside bottom. I was hoping for inside top and outside top to be added.

I believe the calculator is only for hemispheres so the inside and outside dimension is the same everywhere, when measures from the top center of the floor.

If you have the angle set correctly, the top of the brick dimension is not really relevant. It will just turn out to be the right dimension. But if you want to calculate it, you have the measurement of two sides and you know the angle - so it's just the Pythagorean theorem at work...

I am just reading some of the posts about the spread sheet calc. In regards to the measurement from floor to top of solider course. the solider is a half brick which is 4.5 inches high,
the floor firebrick is 2.5 inches thick. Solider is 2 inches higher than floor minus thickness of plywood floor covering/ protection. Also minus the measurement from plywood to center of pivot point on the IT. Am I wrong, just want to make sure before I start my build, after^%$%^^%%$$$snow melts and it warms up. Thanks for your help

Oppps went on your Face book page and looked at pics. I now see you layed your first course flat , so your measurements are correct. sorry, would like to chat about your build on fbook if you accept my friend request, Wayne

Wayne -
Yeah, I don't see many builders laying soldier courses like the forno bravo instructions show any more - most are using flat bricks. But if you want a soldier course then yes, you are correct - just input the height of the course above the floor. As far as the plywood layer goes - the spreadsheet is set up to account for that by the measurement of the IT pivot above the floor. That should give you the measurements correctly.

Not meaning to be rude - but I prefer to keep the pizza oven talk on the pizza oven board. If you have questions that may be applicable to others - please ask here in the forum. Or you can PM me here, I still check in frequently and am more active here than on Facebook!

Hi Deejay,
I have a clarifying question. I am building a 42" oven and have built a chipster jig. I have my side angle set at 5 Degrees. My question is around tilt. I tilted the jig a little too high at 5 degrees for sailor course number 1. It worked out fine but I realize that the tilt was too much. So for course number two my tilt is supposed to be 1.9

Using my iphone I can adjust my tilt and watch the level increase with my leveling app.
Am I reading the spreadsheet right in that 1.9 is 1.9 degrees of tilt?

That is my question.
Thanks

Novaslo -

Yes - that should be right. Are you adjusting the cut to account for the steepness of the first course?

I thought of that and will do my best to do that. Is that something I can simply enter into the spreadsheet? I will be more precise now that I have experienced this haha.

Any advise that you have regarding this would be welcome.

Thanks
