AndreaB posted a topic in Studio Operations and Making WorkQuick question. I have a bone dry piece that has a clean brake. Can I join using sodium silicate? TIA regards Andrea
Hello! I am new to the forums, and to pottery in general - but I am in love! I realized quickly that continuing classes was not going to work for me for several reasons, the on-going cost and the fact that one day a week was not enough time at the wheel! I have been looking for a used wheel and have found a Shimpo RK-10 Super wheel. I'm not going to lie it seems in rough shape, but I am hopeful that you guys can give me some advice on what could be going on and if it's worth the price. So here it goes: the wheel runs nicely, but squeals when it is in the "off" (turned on, but stopped) position. It also continues to ever-so-slowly spin though it should be stopped. It also has some humidity rust to it and I wonder if the housing can be refinished - not that I really care! I kind of love the wheel, but am scared that my excitement is causing me to rush ahead. I have attached some photos, and have a video of the squeak/squeal. Not sure how to share my video and my pictures would not load so I am putting the YouTube link here: https://youtu.be/9Z74XkrbRJM <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/9Z74XkrbRJM"frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> Thank you so much for your help!

I fired a small bust sculpted with Laguna dark brown clay. A piece broke off and I used Amaco Bisque Fix and applied what I was told was sufficient amount. The bust was re-fired but the piece that was glued broke off again. I will use an epoxy to repair but I have 3 questions: 1.should I remove the bisque fix prior to using epoxy? 2. what would I use to remove the Fix? 3. what epoxy would be best to use? Appreciate any/all feedback-thanks!
