There are a wealth of these designs. Mine, alas is long gone. The short of my design was a small caster with the wheel removed and a rod replacing it. The rod ran long and a 2.5 inch piece of angle iron was attached to the rod to limit the inner face of the dome bricks. I didn't use a clamp and a wood rod and block could replace the metal rod and angle iron. Look at Hendo's info. at
http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f28/...heme-2985.html (My indispensible tool (a variation on a FB theme))
and
http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f28/...idea-2573.html (Hendo's dome gauge -- nice idea)

Hendo is no longer with us, but I think he's the one that figured the tool out moving from the string as the tool that defines the inner dome. jcg31 has very helpfull info in his thread, a significant contributor that you should also find helpfull.

What I did is on post 25, but I don't have a tight shot for you in these photos.

Hi welshb2,

I have a indispensable tool that I'll send you for the cost of postage and a box.

View my oven link #2 for a couple of photo of it.

Cheers,

Sounds good to me. Send it on.

Let me know what I owe you and I'll send you a check. I'm not in much of a hurry as not ready for using it before June 20.
Thank you very much.
Rob

Hey Rob - you're only a few minutes up the hill from me in Foslom.

Here's the tool I built - cost me around $5 and has worked great. A small gate hinge, strip of birch and a Simpson Strongtie bracket.

I'm a course or so from closing my dome. Good luck with your build.

Rob -

Don't know if you're headed to Arizona or if you wanted to head down the hill to Folsom to see what I'm doing.

I'll be working on it this weekend - probably Sunday - you're welcome to stop by. You can check out my thread in the Pompeii forum to see the project.

Thanks
Dan
