In Topic: Studio With No Main Water Or Mains Drainage....ideas ..can It Be Done ?

Today, 08:54 AM

I worked out of buckets for at least a year before I got a sink in the studio.

 

I found the hardest part was keeping on top of mopping the studio without an easy accessible water source. I was very bored of walking back and forward to clean the mop water.

I think I'd like to particpate in the upcoming pottery challenge.  So, how are the willing potters picked?

 

I hope the system chosen is fair, accurate, and alphabetically.  ;>)

I fire to cone 8, more from my old kiln not being able to reach cone 10 and things working at cone 8 so I stuck around there. More an 8.5.

They probably won't look inside the kiln but wiring in a 30amp breaker is easy money for them.

 

I have never wired in a programer so I don't know how hard it is. If the bricks don't look that bad then hopefully it hasn't been fired much. Sometimes kilns are bought then sit around for years doing nothing.

What do the elements look like? Nice and even curve round the kiln or bunched up and wonky?

 

Have you looked at all the other electrics for obvious signs of degrading? Crunchy wires, burnt looking connections, melted plastic or lots of dust. Check all the connections and make sure nothing looks nasty.

 

Check the resistance of the elements to see how close they are to the specifications.

 

It doesn't look like it would be too hard to wire in as it is 15 amps if I am looking at the correct one. What do the electricians say?
