Indispensible tool UK version
 
Any ideas on simplest way to construct a dome construction aid using cheap components we can access/source easily in the UK? Preferably without welding.

Thanks,

Pete

I am planning on using a small lazy susan with a wooden stick mounted on it with a small hinge. At the top of the stick I will just screw on an angle bracket. By using the lazy susan I will be increaseing my dome height slightly due to the thickness of the lazy susan, unless I make some adjustments during the build, but I don't think that the 1/2" or so height will create a problem.

Let me clairify, when I say stick it is actually a 2" square straight piece of wood.

Yes, these tools can very easily be made using just wood, screws, and a small hinge....in several different variations. There's no need to weld.

I think constructing the tool is the easiest part of the oven building process. :D

Hey Pete,

The indispensible tool can be crafted with any material. Here is my crude version of the "I" tool.

I've also provided some pics of the tool in "action." :D
