Re: hello

Welcome to the forum. First download the free pompeli plans from Forno Bravo and second look under the Newbie section for Lburou's treasure thread. It has some of the best documented builds. Good luck and ask plenty of questions. The members are not shy about giving answers.

Re: hello
If I remember right, your Forum user name in "not" the same as account name for the Forno Bravo shop. I think you have to fill out the profile, name address, username, password, etc. to download the pompelli plans for the Forno Bravo shopping site.

Re: hello
hanx, i find that ebook on net. i have few questions. i have concrete about 120 cm x 160 cm, d= 8cm. for that dimensions i have found it must be about 90 cm round oven. 90 cm( +30cm for brick and insolation and perlit) is 120 cm. i can extens to 125 cm if need to.
can i put rock wool 10 cm on concrete, then perlite 10 cm on hearth?(concrete i already have).? can i use clay/mud with sand and cement to stick the fire brick on dome? i dont have much money to spend. i already have brick (this is duty heavy magnetit brick 25/12,5/7 cm.)
this is questions what i need to answered.
have few days off and it is urgent.

Re: hello
Bing, my metric thought process is a bit rusty but here is what I see 90cm dome internal diameter, 12.5 cm x 2 (25 cm brick cut in half), min 6 cm X 2 insulation, plus vcrete or pcrete or cladding. So I see 90+25+12+ what ever thickness of vcrete/pcrete/cladding you decide on. So you are already at 127 cm without outer coating/ cladding. Hope this helps, Just my opinion.

Re: hello
thanx for fast replies. i think then i will go to 82 cm (32") dome.
can i apply only perlite for base insulation under the floor fire brick . ceramic wood is too expesive.

Re: hello
P-crete/v-crete has been used by a number of builders in this forum. Look at Gulf's build, he used V-crete both underneath the floor bricks as well as on the dome. I am assuming you will have a good solid concrete base to put your p-crete on since p-crete does not have any structural strength. Good luck. You also my want to move your thread over to the Pompeli Construction area, you will get more visability over there with your questions.
