I think Bailey makes the best slab rollers on the planet-

 

Mark, The Bailey slab rollers are nice for sure...... but you should see the slab roller stuff available in Japan.  I drool.  Two problems.  One,... they don't sell them in the USA.  Two...... the pricing is astronomically expensive even THERE (claywork prices support it)... let alone adding import duties and shipping.

As for the money side of, it sounds to me like maybe you are not at the point yet where making and selling pots should be your only source of income. I recommend you find a second line of work that can help support you until you get your kilns up and running properly.

I doubt there is a danger of reaching a mixture in the air that is actually explosive.  It would drive the people out first and someone might notice the absurdly bad air quality before it reached that point.  There are specific ratios of fuel gases and air that are required for both combustion and also explosive qualities.

 

That being said...... in my travels around looking at studios... I've seem some pretty bad environmental health situations.  This sounds like it would be one of them.

No problem with them in bisques.  Bisque cycles are slow up.  In fact I use them for the bisques (gas kiln) that lead up to the firings in the noborigama to make sure they are dry for that firing.  The potential issues are long term between firing storage in really high humidity situations (outside) or in physically getting wet (stacked on wet ground, rain blowing onto them, flooding, etc.).
