In Topic: New Wheel Wobble - Bummer!

10 July 2015 - 05:28 PM

No need to apologize! :-) After some debugging, we think it might be a problem with the milling on the wheel head not being perfectly concentric. I'm going to work on it over the weekend and see how it goes.  

In Topic: Question About Skutt 1227, L&l E28T-3 Or Equivalent

10 July 2015 - 02:47 PM

For what it's worth, our community studio has an older-modeled 231, which was the predecessor to the 1027. Slightly smaller than the 1227, but still rated for ^8.


We fire it about once every 2 weeks at ^6 with no problems. Elements have lasted at LEAST a year, probably closer to 1.5.

In Topic: Community Kiln Availability

Honestly, I found a bunch of places in LA that rent studio access with the use of kilns to (paying) members, without the need of classes... I just googled it.

Try Echo Ceramics and The Clayhouse to start. They can probably direct you to other similar places if they don't work out for any reason (price, location, etc).

Also, I'm up in San Francisco, but that's the kind of situation I have right now and it's great, and I feel like it's becoming more common in urban areas.

In Topic: Lookiing For A Wholesale Source For Advancer Kiln Shelves

Axner has what I believe to be generic-brand Advancers (nitride bonded silicon carbide) for significantly cheaper than any Advancer brand I can find.


But I can't vouch for the quality. Maybe call Axner and inquire? Get some referrals?

Simon Leach! I tried to edit my original post, but am not allowed to... Weird.
