I have used it for pot bottoms, the only problem is that you might inadvertently get it in the wrong place ......otherwise works great

I bought with a used Skutt kiln a couple years ago. The motor says FASCO  model A073 It's a down draft

Thanks John.......now at least I have an idea where to start :)

In Topic: I Can't See/find My Cone!

I'm with you John ! I also struggle with this to the point of sometimes not actually knowing if the cone bent until the kiln has cooled some, and I can see it. At earthenware temperatures a flash light helps, but not so much with cone 6 . I plan to try dark underglaze on a kiln post behind the cone.

Feeling your pain !


In Topic: Getting A Bit Of Sheen On A Raw Fired Surface?

Have you tried terra sigilatta ( spelling ? ) It's beautiful on low fire but unsure if it would work for mid fire. I have also used various wax combinations, even floor wax. Of course burnishing is the right way but takes  lots of time :)
