Build a pizza oven in the back yard


Hi.
All you need is bricks and cement.
Use perforated bricks or regular 65mm bricks for the support. A light oven may be built on an U shaped support (you will need to make some structural considerations about the weight). Moreover the U shaped support on top requires an armed concrete slab adequate to support the chamber. If you are not sure about structural performance, build a solid support block of bricks.
Make sure that the support is adequate for the weight of the heavy chamber. If the oven is big, then lay basic foundations or build the oven straight on the ground.
For the chamber you must use refractory bricks (fire bricks). You have different choices of design. A common shaped that do not require armed concrete parts is the igloo style chamber. Leave space for the chimney on top of the chamber.

I bought a board game called knock out by Milton Bradley. There were no instructions on how to play. Do you know the rules on how to play?


The wiki for the game has the rules ill post them here for convenience:

Before the game begins, a wall of 24 bricks (plus one "Knockout" brick) is constructed. A template is provided to assist where the bricks should be placed in the wall. These bricks can be 1, 2, or, 3 blocks wide. The bricks are made of clear colored plastic. The 25th brick, also known as the "Knockout" brick (colored solid black in the Milton Bradley version and solid blue in the Hasbro version) is three blocks wide, and is placed on the top of the wall, directly in the middle. The template shows exactly where to place this brick as well.

Players first must roll a special die that has four colors on it and two stars. If a color is rolled, the player must knock out a brick of that color, out of the wall. If the player rolls a star, the player may knock out any brick they wish (with a few exceptions, see below). Players take turns using a motorized hammer known as the "Rammer Hammer", in an attempt to knock out the specified brick out of the wall, without making the wall collapse, OR making the "Knockout" brick fall off the wall. If a player is successful in knocking out the brick, without the wall collapsing, or the "Knockout" brick falling off the wall, they must put the brick back, on the top of the wall. Each player thereafter must accomplish the same task.

The rules for hammering are:

  • A player cannot touch the wall in any way, except with the hammer
  • Once you begin to hammer a brick out of the wall, a player cannot change their mind, even if it becomes obvious that hammering the brick any further will make the wall collapse.
  • A player cannot hammer any brick on the same row or a row higher than the "Knockout" brick

A player is allowed an attempt to make the wall more stable by using the hammer to stabilize the wall before they commit to hammering out a brick, but once a player starts to hammer a brick out of the wall, they can not change their mind.

If at any time during a player's turn, the wall collapses, or the "Knockout" brick falls off the wall, that player is eliminated from the game, the wall is rebuilt, and play starts again with the next player in line.

If only one player remains, they win the game.

Xbox wont turn on i just finished downloading halo wars and a few miniutes later it shut off


hey a :-)

is ur power brick 'green/orange/red light on ??
if it is firstly make sure its fully pushed into ur 360 ! (i know.....im sure u tried this already)
It could be RED' ?? but it dosnt really matter.....its still the same fix !
assuming you have some sort of power to the power brick (any colour)
un plug it (from the mains).......
im gonna guess you have been using some sort of USB connection (either a controller charger, wired controller or usb stick)(music ect ect)....either to the 2 front usb slots or the 1 at the back.......??
if this is the case un-plug EVERYTHING from all used usb slots........
now try powering up the 360 .......??
If it still dosnt power up (assuming you have some light on the power brick??) revert to plan 'B'.....
un-plug the power brick from the mains again.....& unplug 'ALL' connected leads from the 360 so you just have the 360 with nothing plugged in ! if you have a torch ect have a look inside all usb slots you have used (for charging ur controller ect even the back one if u have used it ??)
inside all used usb slots are little 'prongs' ...if in the process of plugging in & out chargers/wired controllers ect you accidently bend one of these prongs & it touches the sides of the casing surrounding the usb slot it shorts the board out & results in 'No power up' of the xbox ! its a simple problem to fix yet difficult to spot unless ur told about it !
usually un-plugging all usb used slots rectifys the problem but failing that check inside them for bent prongs !
I find a pair of tweezers or a tiny screwdriver does the job best :-)
plug power lead back in & try again
let me know how u get on ??

hope this helps ??

Infrared Heater - flaming thru plaque


I had this problem. From using the center brick most of the time, lots of dust bunnies build up in the gas chimney behind the brick.
Tie 2 pipe cleaners together with a small perpendicular circle at the top and carefully remove the dust bit by bit by twirling the cleaner.
The brick should fire like new if it is carefully cleaned out.

How to make a drivingway for my garage of my new house.


Hey Paul,

I'll give you the rundown. First, for a driveway, I'd have to advise using a pretty thick slab of concrete beneath the brick. The concrete part of it should be done professionally. But I live in an area with lots of rain (hence, Mud), might not be a problem where you are. Anyway, here you go:
  1. Clear the area so its smooth. Grade it if necessary.
  2. After clearing the area, set the perimeters with string or with 1x4 boards. This keeps you from going wide as you lay the bricks
  3. Get a load of sand and spread it evenly over the area. This can be done easier with two people and a long 2x4. The depth should be at least an inch. This makes leveling the bricks MUCH easier. Keep some aside for filling in the spaces between the bricks. Keep it dry too.
  4. Start at one end and start placing the bricks. As you advance, you'll be on the bricks, not the sand.
  5. Have a straight edged board handy to level them. Use a rubber mallet to tap them down. Consider the spacing between them. Use a scrap of 3/8 wood or something like that to keep the spacing consistent.
  6. As you place more bricks, get up occasionally and eyeball your work.
  7. After they are laid, you'll need to hit a home improvement place. You are looking for a glue (powdered) that is mixed with your left over sand to set the bricks. Ask someone there, they will know.
  8. You mix it in with the sand and dump it in the middle of the bricks. Then just sweep it over the entire area until the spaces are filled. Then sweep off the excess.
  9. Once filled, lightly spray water over the whole drive. This activates the compound. Once dry, you have a driveway.
If you do concrete it first, you'll only need enough sand for the space fill.

Hope it turns out great. I love brick drives.
