In Topic: Venting Systems

Thanks Ron, Neil and Joseph lotsa good ideas.  I am not really handy or spry (will be 80 in a month) but I crawled under the kiln today, disconnected things and, using the perturbation method, got the motor working again.  I recently bought new ducting so now its the collection box that has to be replaced - any more perturbation of that and it will be a pile of rust.  Joseph your message indicated that you can buy the box separately from the rest of the system, I guess the next step is to get in touch with L&L and see if they'll sell me one.  Thanks everyone for all the help, Joan.

Thanks Ron but I must not have been very clear.  The collecting box is a disintegrating entity and the motorized fan does not work at all.  Joan

I would like to reopen this topic.  I have a ten year old L&L JD230 and the venting system (L&L Sure Vent) is shot - from the collecting box immediately under the kiln to the motor.  I am considering either replacing the system with another Sure Vent or switching to a Skutt Envirovent 2.  Any advice?  any experience with the Envirovent 2?  Any other system to recommend?  One factor that is important to me is ease of replacement.  Thanks for any input,  Joan

Your pots from your first firing are amazing - and then they get even better.  My favorite is the mug on the right in the top row of your new work.  It has a relaxed, carefree air while the one to the left is more stern and serious, keeping an eye on that young punk to the right who doesn't know how dangerous the world can be - made me laugh.  Congratulations.

I forgot to mention that my friend did not transfer the photographs to the bowls and plates but developed simple line drawings from the photos and used these as the basis for his china painting.  Thus, art by local artist.
