About me
  There are a total of six tools in the plans. A description of each tool and what it's used for is as follows:
  • Poker - metal rod used to move burning wood either back or forward in the oven
  • Shovel - metal tray used to empty the oven of hot or cold coals
  • Scraper - metal plate used to push the hot coals around the oven
  • Brush - brass bristled brush with swivel head used to sweep ash off the oven floor
  • Scuffle - type of mop used to clean the last of the ash off the oven floor
  • Peel - flat metal sheet used to load and unload pizza, bread, roasting pans etc

I use each of these tools at least once during every firing and cooking session. For me, these are must have pieces of equipment if you want to get the most out of your oven.

They are all very simple to make and need the minimum of equipment. The main peices of equipment you will need are:

  • Workbench with vice
  • Electric drill
  • Angle grinder
  • Welder (Optional: For two of the tools I used a welder because I have a friend who has one, but in the plans I show you how to I make these even without a welder)
  • Tin snips
  • And other minor tools and equipment

All the oven tools cost me a total of around A$100 (US$75) but would be even less if you have some of the materials already.
