  1. Have had my pacifica wheel for 20 + years. Just tried to center 18 lbs and had the wheel slow down to almost stopping with pedal pressed to 80%. Can hear motor running.... is it belts? Also tried 8 lbs same symptoms ...w h e n I release the pressure on clay, wheel speed resumes....help!
  2. Thanks for the great suggestions. Any suggestions on size -- tall ? Width ? Maybe a removable interior container? I Like that gaskets and filters are not essential , now I need to work on making tight seated lids, making two is a great suggestion -- we seem to break things at our house! We'll b ready to compost come spring now all we need is spring weather CHEERS
  3. Not used to posting...hope I have included all that's needed on the site. Thinking about making a kitchen compost container. Any suggestions on lid gaskets and charcoal filters - which to use any likely resources for them? Thanks for your input!
  4. THANKS FOR RESPONDING. I HAVE ALWAYS INCLUDED THE BIO IN THE GLAZE. AS FOR THE TALC IT IS USED IN SOME OF MY OTHER GLZES AND HAS NOT HAD ANY EFFECT ON THEM. WILL DO THE TEST WITH LITE TALC.
  5. I have been mixing this simple white breaking brown glaze for years. of course, Murphys Law sets in when I mix large batches, anyway i mixed a 5 gal batch this week and the result was not white but a very nutmeg like glaze. I used dark talc, which I don't think I have ever used before. Could that be the culprit???? I of course thought that I had mis measured the Tin Oxide so I added 1/3 more (2%) and retested the glaze and nothing changed. any suggestions how to turn this batch white? I hate throwing away anything especially a glaze with Tin Ox. I have a great recipe already for nutmeg. Hoping it is a simple solution. suggestions welcome. thanks White Breaking Brown Dolomite 13% Custer Feldspar 31% frit 3134 18% China clay 30 % Talc 8% Tin Ox 6 % Black Iron Ox 3%
