In Topic: First Time Spraying Glazes...need Some Advice

Where did you guys find plastic jars that fit the rings on the Critter?  I tried U-Line but they did not know the fittings of the jars they sell. I thought the term Mason Jar would answer the Q, but did not.

I also don't like the idea of glass jars, and I like extras filled and ready to spray before I start the process.

Min, did you take the Critter apart, take off the jar base and put on the rings -lid of the plastic jars you found?  Did not think of doing that.

No specific injuries, but lots of hand based work and sports, and age related. The PP has kept me going.  And changing around what I do during the day.  I only have 3 balls of ready clay within reach of the wheel.  I have to get up, move around weight out more clay, move finished pots, etc , all day.  I think it really makes a difference at the end of the day.

I don't tweak glazes, but I do a lot of testing.  I am still adjusting firing schedules for max performance of glazes I already feel good about.
