I use wheels from Princess Auto screwed onto a 3/4" plywood board.  The wheels say they hold 350 lbs. each.

The TS is awesome & there is one with a smaller splash pan, I prefer the larger one. I have a VLWhisper & The best thing about it is the quiet. The torque is not great & the splash pan comes apart & leaks. Since buying the TS I use the VL whisper for trimming.
You must be feeling better, great.

I saw a similar object on antique road show & made a replica for pit firing.

Hi, very nice for you to be back playing in the mud.

I have reconstituted dried up glazes by adding water & lots of soaking & mixing but some had large chunks they needed some Epsom salts to break them & restraining. Good luck.

In Topic: Pots Away!

I got a call in Jan. for 60 mugs & just after got a doctor wanting to do surgery with 4-6 week recovery with another surgery following, yikes! So I stalled the first surgery for a month & got to work. The mugs got glazed yesterday & will decorate today & fire Sunday.

I watch for a little warmer weather as the kiln is in my unheated garage. If they don't all fit I have a small window to do it in April where I can fire more pots that I' ve been frantically throw to fill the next load. Luckily the customer doesn't want the full order til June at the latest.
