Question Re: new build in werribee

Gudday Colin
I have been reading your post with interest your determined to master this your planning is spot on and you mentors impeccable.
But the devil sometimes is in the detail. You are a visual person I'd recon and perhaps it's time to get a bit visual. Get yourself a big hunk of paper or raid a fridge box from the local electrical store. Drawn the dome full size full thickness brick. Draw a section of your oven split down the middle back to entrance. Fit the entrance hieght you need into the curve of the dome and you'll see where the dome and the entrance intersect.
Then get the drawings out of the way go back to the iIT and dome calculator and
Make it happen ....
Regards dave

Thx Dave for that encouragement boy was that needed..

this has been doing my head in since the weekend especially after I made that dome template to follow the contour i'm looking for. You are spot on also about me being visual.

What you have suggested I have been doing with my son tonight- as you must have been writing your post - Using the dome template you see in the previous picture and a cardboard profile version of my arch template cut in half @ TDC, so I can run it back and forth until the two match.

I have worked out that APOTHEM DJO was referring to, at 434mm [thx Dennis I hope this is right]. Did this using some pictures of what I was trying to calculate and with DJO explanation and a little Pythagoras.

I now just need some daylight to test it out put it in practice and get that alignment right.

Thanks again Dave, Sharkey, Dennis and Damon

Colin - you are really onto something here.

I was going through some pics of my first build and thought others might find some humour in the "template" I made out of garden edging.

Hi all

Well I think I have the transition worked out, Dave was right visuals work better. Thought I would get the IT and dome template sorted and ready to begin laying some bricks and moving on up that Dome.

I have included pictures of the method i'm using for interchanging the IT and Dome Templates if any one out there is interested. I still have to cut the Dome template into 2 or 3 pieces so I can fold it inside the dome to remove. will just be using duct tape to achieve this, if that doesn't work will attach some hinges.

And some more photo's to complete the set.

I have one question the arch bricks work out quite well without a central brick. Should I leave it or do as in the second photo on this page? I will move the smaller cuts lower down or shave some off each brick.

Why, do want a central brick?
