In Topic: Volt - Options To Upgrade For Tabletop Wheels

03 April 2015 - 12:44 PM

Some wheels are available in 220 euro voltage but some are not.

Plug adapter will not do it for sure! :

you need a voltage converter to 120. They are not very expensive (Maybe around $75)

Don't worry about the shinkage in terms of glaze fit: It is COE that determines glaze fit

Shrinkage and COE are not related.

Do your test tiles with the glazes you want to use:

If they are too loose or too tight, adjust the glazes.

Ceramic fiber is spun Kaolin clay: like fiberglass but much more toxic.

Paper fiber is just that: paper: easily made by putting a roll of toilet paper in a small bucket of water:

 

As Colby said above, the paper does not make it more translucent, but what it does is give you the ability to make super thin slabs : hence you can make more translucent objects.

The clay is not more translucent but a thinner wall will pass a lot more light than a thicker wall !


In Topic: Anyone With Experience Firing An Olympic Updraft Kiln?

The cone arts are made in Toronto and are all CSA approved : do that!

The hassle of of gas kiln will not be worth it, and you will need to get a CSA field inspection which costs some bucks and highly unlikely that they will approve a updraft gas kiln.

Think Bob Dylan circa 1965 : time to "go electric"
