For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

  • how are you notching your bricks

    trying to figure the best way to make small cuts with the HF saw, specifically trying to make the notch for the door to lean against, some refer to this as the pistol cut. is there a trick since with the 10 in round blade its hard to make a 1/2 inch cut

    Re: how are you notching your bricks

    The only cuts that are hard to make are the really deep cuts, sometimes you have to score those on both side, break off the segment, and trim it freehand. The shallow half inch cut you're taking about, you can just mark the line with a waterproof marker, and pull the table away and cut it freehand. This presupposes that you're using an unsegmented diamond blade where brushing against the blade won't be a disaster.

        I ran a cut to the depth I needed. I was using a HF saw so I could raise the blade to make the second cut (of the pistol). On the really long cuts I believe I ended up using the blade as a "mil" to finish the cut. You can see the results here. PhotoPlog - Uploads Posted By Les
