mgtmeehan posted a topic in Equipment Use and RepairHello, 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!
