In Topic: Cost Of Replacing Elements

Dick,

Check with Dale or Brian G. at Workhouse; they use Skutts there and may have a someone they use/recommend. Or be willing to do it for $$$. Also, Matt Frietas did the elements at CC and might be willing to do these for you -- he was doing some work on kilns for schools the last I heard.

Or maybe call Tech Support over at Highwater in Asheville and ask for their suggestions.

Are you planning to vent the kiln to the outside? You need to consider that; you don't want fumes from firings wafting up into your living spaces. Dehumidifier will help manage moisture levels and help dry floors after you have wet mopped. As to the washer/dryer, your significant other/spouse (if there is one) might appreciate that area being walled off . . . clay dust has a way of finding itself all over the place. And if you hang shirts, pants while waiting for other things to dry in the dryer, you risk getting the clean items dirty. Avoid clay in the sump; it's not the water, but the fine clay and other stuff getting lodged in the pump itself that can do damage. Before moving to the garage, I worked in our basement. Tracking clay dust up the stairs was always a problem.

With $150 you'll be able to get 3 or 4 pints! :lol:


Or enough dry mix to make one five gallon bucket.
