now here is a loooong peel..;

YouTube - abbotsford convent bakery

that is the oven at Abbotsford convent

I plan on fabbing up some tools...but dont forget, we wont bake pizza in the very corners anyway....the space is to keep our options open....we can bake where the temp is the best. I imagine that 75% of the pizza will be in only 50% of the oven...the rest of the space is just to throw it's thermal mass around..so when someone asks "where do you bake pizza?" we can answer..."anywhere we want".

The pan is the reflector. There will be a plate of high temp glass in front. I will make up a ceramic socket on the end of a threaded rod to slide in through the 2" pipe sticking out the back of the pan. The rod will have disks or spring wires to center it and be surrounded by mineral wool insul. An appliance (oven) bulb fits in the 2" pipe with room to spare and I will fix it so it just clears the inside of the pan by putting a stop on the outside end of the rod. The wiring will be high temp also. The idea is to be able to change the bulb from the outside of the oven without interupting the heating or baking cycles.
Roger

Hey Roger,
Sounds like a great plan, cant see any reason why it wouldnt work, and Its great you can change the bulb from the outside..

Haven't been on the site in awhile. Glad I dropped back by.
I'm going to enjoy watching your build.

That WFO is going to be a beast!

I love the shot of a full grown man (you, I realize) outstretched across the oven floor. That thing is a nuclear reactor.
