In Topic: Laguna Pacifica Wheel Gt 400

19 September 2014 - 10:35 AM

i have used a pacifica 400 since i bought it in 1972.  have replaced the belts once, about 3-4 years ago.  the pedal was replaced in the 90s because my house was damaged by lightning and the wheel had been left plugged in.   it is the newer pedal electronics.  if nothing else, you should LOVE the quietness of it.  building a workstation around it was easy and now everything is within reach.

 

yes, leave the wheel unplugged when you are not using it.

In Topic: What Is The Most Challenging Aspect Of Working With Clay?

wish i had a small test kiln for glaze tests.  i know the base glaze is great but i want to try new colors for specific items.  the temptation to just put some colored stain in and glaze a pot or two at the same time as the test in a firing for a show is really hard to resist.  did it again today with tiny angels for christmas decorations.  if the colors are pale, that is all that matters.   i will know on thursday when i can open the big kiln.
