Hydrogen Burner

18 September 2014 - 04:07 AM

Would it be possible to fire a kiln with hydrogen?


Just reading an article about better hydrogen generation and it got me thinking.


Employing The Homeless

Well not all of them but I know a guy who keeps asking me for any work. I am thinking I could get him mixing slips, wedging clay, slip casting and weighing out glazes.


Wouldn't be a full time job but at least a few hours a week.


Obviously lots of trust issues but has anybody ever tried this before?



Looking For A Good Kiln Supplier In The Uk!

09 September 2014 - 09:53 AM

I have rang many companies today asking their advice on kilns. The official skutt suppliers in the uk are very unhelpful and I have already had a bad experience with them when buying my skutt wheel. They forgot to put a plug on it and also forgot to include the head extension for the wheel. A few other companies I have spoken to are not much better. When I am looking to spend over £1500 you would think they would be helpful and not just sound bored.


The only company I found that gave sound advice and were helpful was http://www.kilns.co.uk/index.aspx


Just looking for people who have bought a kiln in the UK and have good things to say about the company. Give me your testimonies :D

Kiln Wire

07 September 2014 - 02:48 PM

I am looking to buy a large amount of high temp wire for my kiln. I think the main wires coming from the plug need replacing.


What would be the best way to do this? What different options do I have for the wire? I bought 4m of high temp silicone wire but it was quite expensive per metre. What gauge would you recommend? I think what I have is 8 but I can't remember the numbering system ever. I would prefer to over spec. Can you buy a three core high temp wire?


I am not expecting it to be cheap, I want to buy a big roll. Don't mind about the colour. Will be needing it for the next 50 years I think.
