  1. Thank you Neil. I enlisted my son to do the work...lol... he told me that screwing into the firebrick was like screwing into day old snow...lol... it bites the top crust , but underneath it's all mush. Thanks for the clarification. Will let you all know how it turns out. :-)
  2. thanks, Marcia! Do you suggest using the kiln cement right in the screw holes as the screws are placed? Or should I wait til the kiln cement has cured? The screws are to attach the handle and hinge parts that were removed from the original metal band.
  3. Hello, I need some help with an old Evenheat manually operated kiln. The lid band broke, and I bought a replacement. However, in trying to repair everything, including replacing the lid handles, prop support and hinges, the firebrick just powders up with attempts to screw the attachments back in place. I was thinking maybe I need a masonry bit, and also was wondering if I should reinforce the screw holes with kiln cement. I am not experienced in kiln repair, and don’t want to ruin the lid. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
