  1. Hi, I currently do smoke firings in an oil drum, fired with wood, but I would like more control over the temperatures reached. I’m thinking of building raku kiln from another drum and trying saggar firings. One question I have is about regulators. I had always intended to use a high pressure regulator but have found it difficult to source an inexpensive change over regulator (I want to be able to connect two gas bottles up) for high pressure systems. There seem to be plenty of change over regulators for low pressure systems, so I was wondering if it would make any difference if I went for a low pressure system instead. I believe some people use low pressure systems for raku. What are the differences between using high and low pressure systems? Is there a difference in the results, the time it takes and the cost? Also, how many firings would you expect to get from a 5gk or 10kg gas bottle? Thanks Kirakat
  2. Hi, and best holiday wishes and a Merry Christmas to all~ I have a 55Gallon barrel drum Raku kiln, but even with two 300000btu brush torches I cant get past 1600F, and my Amaco Glaze matures at cone five, 1895-1900. Is there a burner that can get me to cone 05, or do I search for lower fie glazes? I've really been trying what I can dream up, but just cant hit that temp. Any Insights would be very helpful. Thanks! I have a 4" port, and a 6" exhaust. I have one layer of kiln blanket, and the 3" barrel bung open for exhaust.
  3. I am in the process of building a down draft barrel kiln similar to the one in the alternative kilns and firing Technique books by James Watkins and Paul Wandless. I was thinking about trying to use two barrels with a shared chimney so that I could do two firings at once without the expense of having a second chimney. I planned to use a t shaped pipe to join the two barrels with a central chimney. Has anyone ever tried this? I'm wondering if there would be enough airflow using one chimney to support the two barrels. Any ideas?
