Sadly there are no real equipment reviews anymore on ceramic equipment. The magazines all take advertising money (except studio potter)

 

 

No... Studio Potter takes money now from the manufacturers.  See the back pages.

Unfortunately, no independent reviews out there that I've ever found. 

 

Boy................. do I miss the OLD Studio Potter magazine.

Actually it is just a simple rectified DC power supply.  A very basic electronic circuit.

 

And Mark.......... I believe that early on in the thread he said it is the 220VAC model he has.  (we need the real schematic)

The zirconium variations of opacifiers give a "cold" white.  Tin gives a "warm" white.  Just the way it works.

Although, I will keep banging the drum in hopes the industry changes.

 

I've been beating on that drum for a LONG time, Nerd.

 

As long as people buy the product......... and don't complain LOUDLY.......... it won't change.
