This is what I am talking about. These ones I DO NOT USE because the thumb screw is a weak point. But the design is similar.

String Alignment System (SAS).


Ken - very clever. I went this route. I call it the board system (BS). Seems to be working. Maybe we should merge our two products and call it the BS SAS. Throw in a few ginzu knifes - sells could go through the roof.

Les, the board you have pictured is on scale with what I have planned. A couple blocks on either side would help keep it up while placing each brick in position. Any progress on your dome?

Throw in a couple of these babies - and make sure to include the star tip!

"But wait, if you call now you get this Mortar Icing Bag with star tip absolutely free! Forget bland old concave mortar lines. With the Mortar Icing Bag you can make your mortar into any design you want... Stars, flowers, curly cues! Just put on the Star Tip, point and squeaze! It couldn't be easier!"

Robert,

the BS is self supporting - no blocks required. There is a pin at the end of the board. But hey, if it enables a sell - we could throw in a couple of blocks.


I got the entry way set last night - I may pull the forms tonight.

Just what we need more BS in the system. Seems like most companies have plenty of BS in their system.

Seriously though I love the BS system. You could bling it up by making it out of diamond plate every guy would buy it if it was diamond plate.

Heck with this and the brickey you could have an oven in a weekend. How about the "Blockey" hey...wait a min..I...I just...gotta go. I gotta call Billy Mayes.

Ken,
I noticed that you changed the elevation of the "FSAS" from the begining of your build. Would you suggest starting low in the beginning or would you change it at the point that you did?
Great workmanship!

Thanks,
Don

Hi Don,

If I did it again, I would probably mount the string to the bottom of the oven from the start. The stick I had it on wobbled a bit. Feel free to play around with it!

Great idea, will work and get the job done. Now here is just a small tweak if you want. You can get cord locks at most sewing centers and craft shops or order online. Slide it over string and lock in place instead of the knot method. Here is a link so you can see what I am referring to.
