bluecreekpottery posted a topic in Studio Operations and Making WorkIt has been a long time since I have done anything with molds as I am mainly a wheel thrower. I have a plaster fruit bowl mold (hump mold over a year old but have never used it before until now) and my clay won't release from it and I'm scared that if I don't take it off soon that it will crack (its been on the mold for almost a full day uncovered). I can't get it off, what should I do? And how do you keep your clay from sticking to your plaster molds?
I just installed my new Brent 4" wall mounted extruder and it does not grip the vertical post when I pull down. I have soft clay and I am not exerting much pressure. The install is level. Any suggestions?
sine posted a topic in Studio Operations and Making WorkHi my trusty Gladstone wheel ( am in Ireland) is about 3rd hand (that I know of..) developed a slight tilt..took off the wheel head and can see slight shiny circular band where the flat axle top ( see photo) has been rubbing against the wheel head socket (see photo). Does seem to have been axle grease there but not much left...No washer of any description used.. Never had any problem before and never checked it as was no need to! Anyone got any suggestions? Would putting a rubber washer or more axle grease on it, rectify the problem? or has the wheel head metal been worn so wheel head needs to be replaced? Any advice or suggestions much appreciated
