I've Got 99 Problems But A Kiln Ain't One.

This website looks like it has some useful basic info on all things kiln. Well I found the first few articles helpful so thought I would share :)

Anybody ever used one in a kiln? Only ever seen pre-mixed burners.


Broken Wheel

28 March 2014 - 10:35 AM

I have a wheel that is a cone drive. Don't know if that is the correct term. It has a cone that you push up and down against a rubber ring and that controls the speed.

 

The rubber ring has eaten itself and I need a new one but struggling to find one as it is not from a major manufacturer.

 

I need a 240mm diameter ring with about 20mm cross section.

 

Does anybody know of a similar one I could just pilfer and hack to my wheel or another ingenious solution?


Laying Bricks

20 March 2014 - 03:40 PM

I have been reading a bit about making my own IFB to start building my own little kilns. I know it is probably not cost effective but I just want to do it anyway for my own enjoyment.

 

I was working last night in some 3D software with a 9/4.5/3 brick shape trying to work out how to layout bricks and how many I will need. I then realised that I know nothing about brick laying :wacko:  There must be a good way to stack bricks and build up a wall.

 

Anybody got some links to kiln building / brick laying? Going to go to the library tomorrow to see if I can't find a good book on kiln building but thought I would ask here.

 

Any information is good even if it is only slightly related. " I want it all "


Fuel Efficient Kiln Design

15 March 2014 - 12:18 PM

Busy researching kiln designs and came across this page. Interesting points even if I didn't understand the whole schematics of the system.

 

Anybody put something like this in their kiln or made any other modifications to up your fuel efficiency and reduce the impact on the environment?
