Auto Firing Programs

28 July 2016 - 11:11 AM

Hi All...

I just got an Orton Auto-fire programmer for my kilns and would like some suggestions for sources for firing programs from bisque to crystalline glazes and everything in between. Any help would really be appreciated!



Reconstituting Bone Dry Clay

07 June 2016 - 09:52 AM

I bought a used kiln from a little ole lady who was moving and decided to give up on her ceramics hobby. As part of the deal and in an effort to help clean out her garage, she gave me six 50# boxes of clay which are bone dry.

What would be the best way to go about reclaiming these bricks?


Removing Wheel Head

21 May 2016 - 08:54 AM

​Does anyone out there know how to remove the wheel head from my old Creative Industries wheel? The head has a split in it and is not perfectly flat. Not too much of a concern since I have a variety of bats to throw on. Just curious more than anything.

I've also scored a working treadmill with a 2 1/2 hp motor which I may, at some time, look to adapt to the CI wheel. I know it would be overkill since I don't plan on throwing A Hundred Pounds of Clay... B)

Anyway...Any ideas on the wheel head? :huh:


For those who might be curious, that is a splash pan I made from the bottom of a plastic trash can when I couldn't find a replacement for the pan which was missing when a friend gave me the wheel which he found in a barn on a newly acquired piece of property.
