    Oxyprobe Axner vs Bailey

    Thanks for the reply. That controller and set-up looks more high-tech then I'm familiar with. Sounds like protecting it from soda is a definite to-do for me.

    I like the idea of pulling the tube back into the wall. Should work since the wood/soda happens just towards the end of the firing anyway.

    Oxyprobe Axner vs Bailey

    Thanks for the reply. I'm firing a propane MFT car kiln. I often add a couple wood sticks with soda on them towards the end of a firing for added variation. I'm guessing that is adding to the deterioration of the platinum wire. I guess I have to decide if I can justify the ongoing cost for the added control.

    Oxyprobe Axner vs Bailey

    I've had an Axner Oxyprobe about 20 years. It's always seemed rather finicky and fragile. I've replaced the platinum wire (ouch) a couple times. I've been firing without now for awhile but miss having one. The catalog description of the probe on the ( more pricey)Bailey sounds more sturdy. Wondering if anyone has experience with both.
  5. It's that time of the year when we evaluate our business practices. We sell almost 100% of our work through our home studio gallery. Taking credit cards over an Ameribanc reader has been going smoothly, but with all the add-ons charges it ran about 4.6% last year which seems high to me. We bought the Amazon square but it seems flimsy for desktop use in our shop. I also like having an immediate receipt to give the customer. We use QuickBooks accounting software and have looked a little into switching to them and their desktop reader but they'd want us to update to QuickBooks on-line which scares me a bit. I'm curious what others use who sell from their home shop.
