In Topic: Envirovent Suddenly Not Venting Fumes

12 November 2014 - 10:07 AM

All the peephole plugs were in.  I'll try checking with a match when I get home (kiln is off now, but the vent is still running).  I guess it could be the wind interfering with it.  I dont remember what the weather was like when I first noticed the problem.


Another thought- does how the kiln is packed make a difference in the vent's functionality?

So... Many.... Egg separators....

Closely followed by spoon rests.

Third runner up are (oddly specific )mugs with trees on them. Any kind of mug. Any kind of tree. People around here have been losing their minds for all three of these items lately.

Haha, my in studio dehumidifier is named "the professor" because we set him up in front of ware to dry it, so it looks like he's standing up in front of a class.

We took it a step further and gave him a mustache and monocle too... Lol

Certain finished ceramic pieces get names too, but they're never flattering. ;) there was sonofab*tch the flower pot, and dumb little brother the traveler mug...

Also, on the dehumidifier thing, I use one sometimes, but it can dry stuff out FAST (including eyes and lips, haha). So if you leave it on and you're out of the studio for a day you can come back a pile of ware that's too dry to work with anymore.  :/

I've tried a LOT of mops and I find that the replaceable sponge mops are the best.  They hold up well and clean out easily.  The rope mop was a clay-caked disaster.  I got the floor squeegee from Home Depot or Lowes.  18 inch squeegee head on like a mop handle.
